A WEALTH management firm has let an office suite in Ilkley’s landmark International Development Centre, one of six office spaces in the building being marketed by Dacres Commercial.

Opened in 1968 by the International Wool Secretariat (IWS), the International Development Centre on Valley Drive was used for research and development into wool use.

The building is of artistic and architectural importance due to its large-scale wool themed mural, which surrounds the former lecture theatre.

It was recently divided into six high office suites which the Yorkshire based estate agent Dacres Commercial is marketing for between £3,300 and £34,300 per annum.

The first of the six offices has been let to John Coldwell Pension and Investments Ltd, which offers expert strategic pensions and investment advice.

The firm has taken a 301 square feet suite located at the front of the landmark building.

Matthew Brear, of Dacres Commercial, says: “We are thrilled that John Coldwell Pension and Investments Ltd has chosen this fantastic building for its new office. These high class offices represent a unique opportunity for businesses to base themselves in an attractive setting without the daily grind of travelling into a city centre.

"The fact the building is such a well-known landmark furthers its appeal.”
