Digital agency makes move to Mackie’s Corner
Land Digital has committed to The Dome, an office space within the grade two-listed Sunderland landmark.
The Dome is a 2,300sq ft office on the third floor of the Mackie’s Corner building on High Street West.
The move, which will see 16 members of staff relocate to the new office, follows a successful year for the business.
Having secured a number of new contracts in 2023, Land Digital has ambitious plans to continue strengthening the team’s skills with the creation of five technical roles in 2024.
Mackie’s Corner has been lovingly restored by property developer KirtleyCo over recent years, following a £2m investment into the building.
Alex Kirtley, managing director, said: “The Dome is such an amazing space, there really is nothing else like it.
“It is the centrepiece of Mackie’s Corner and we were so pleased when we met Jon as he really shared our vision for how it could be used.
“They are a great business who will ensure the space continues to play an integral role in the city centre’s ever growing business community and we’re delighted that they are now the latest business to proudly call Mackie’s Corner home.”
Jon Leighton, managing director at Land Digital, said: “We’ve been looking for a permanent space since the pandemic and this exceeded all of our requirements.
“Sunderland is a city undergoing rapid change and this new office strategically puts us at the epicentre of its transformation.
“It’s also really well connected to the region’s major transport links and makes it a lot easier for us to host clients from all over the country”
“This side of the city is a real hive of activity at the moment, with so much going on, and we’re proud to be playing a small part in that.”
Land Digital specialises in supporting companies with digital transformation and extracting maximum value from their digital assets and software.
The company works with clients including Honda, Informa, HiPP Organic and Sunderland City Council.
Land Digital’s move to Sunderland city centre was supported by the business investment team at Sunderland City Council.
