Going green!

In October 2019 we took the plunge and gave our "green" credentials a boost when we invested in 6 electric car charging points for our car park at The Tannery. Already they'd seen plenty of use and this isn't the last of the sco-friendly improvements we'll be making across our business as we move into 2020.

Reinventing an old space

With the meeting rooms and reception at The Tannery completed, we then turned our attentions to an old space that we knew had bags of potential. Affectionally called "the garage" the space was reinvented in to a brand new, modern and stylish kitchen, dining and socialising space our team and our customers can enjoy.

After rebranding in 2018, we decided it was time for a little bit of refurbishment and redesign throughout our three buildings aswell. Up first was a revamp of the reception and meeting spaces at The Tannery to bring it in line with our new look and feel and to match it's sister building Calls Wharf.

The big milestone for 2018 is our full rebrand as Bracken Workspace Plus, putting our personality at the forefront of what we do (and getting an exciting new look in the process).

After the relative low of 2015 a huge high came in 2016 when we purchased The Tannery from Marshalls CDP. This move meant that we now fully own 2 out of our 3 buildings.

This year was a trying time when The Tannery fell victim to the Boxing Day Floods after one of the wettest festive periods on record. Thankfully we were straight on it and our hardworking team managed to get the building dried out and back in order before our customers returned in the New Year. Phew!

The 3rd Building

Albion Court sits just outside Trinity Leeds and it has to be one of our most imposing buildings with it's gothic windows and old church spire. It's home to a number of businesses and like all our other buildings, it offers 2 stylish meeting rooms, breakout spaces and a welcoming reception.

The 2nd Building

That 2nd building was The Tannery, although it used to be known as the old Arla Dairy. The Tannery is even larger than Calls Wharf at around 25,000 square feet and it's arranged over 4 floors and 2 wings! As if that wasn't impressive enough, the building also sits on 1.7 acres of land (hence why we can offer free on-site parking). 


In 2011 all our hardwork was really starting to pay off as we became affiliated with the Business Centre Association. As BCA members we represent, uphold and surpass the BCA code of Conduct and best practice recommendation, so it's pretty serious stuff.

Two years on from the beginning of Bracken Business Centre's we had the opportunity to add a second building to our portfolio. This acquisition also marked the start of a long and happy working partnership with Marshalls CDP too.

Established in 2008 by Neil Clark and Matthew Fuller, Bracken Limited as it was back then soon took on board John Clark and Denise McGeachy and the Bracken family as we know it today was started. Then after a short while Bracken Limited became Bracken Business Centres as the company grew out of the world of commercial property development and into serviced office space thanks to the acquisiton of Calls Wharf.

The 1st Building

Calls Wharf was the very first building in the Bracken portfolio and it remains our flagship property today.  It used to be the Thistle Hotels headquarters in Leeds but today it's home to 2 professional meeting rooms and over 30 stylish workspaces. It's spread over 4 floors that provide around 20,000 square feet of space nestled on the banks of the River Aire.
