One City Square is a striking building located across City Square from The Queens Hotel and Leeds Central Station.  It features a 12 storey glass-clad atrium with transparent wall-climber lifts.  The ground floor level is clad in a black Brazilian granite.

Outside the entrance is an 8 metre high sculpture featuring bronze birds flying in a spiral configuration.  Entitled “Flight”,  it was commissioned by Norwich Union and created by Lorne McKean.
