Highcross is off to a flying start this autumn at its Livery Place office scheme in Birmingham city centre, completing a substantial letting to a global HR leader.
Randstad has taken a whole floor of 9,000 sq ft, in what is a significant take up of space for the city’s Central Business District.
Joe Curlett, Highcross Senior Asset Manager, commented: “Our latest phase of refurbishment has only just completed and this letting is a testament to the quality of product we have on offer here and bolsters a further letting to Packt Publishing who have also taken occupation within the last few weeks.”
Highcross worked closely with Randstad to agree a deal and deliver the space on tight timescales, in order to facilitate occupation towards the end of September.
Randstad commented: “We are delighted with the new offices. The position and configuration has provided an ideal centralised facility, and we are confident that the building will enhance the service to our clients in Birmingham and the local region and will form a platform for developing and expanding our established businesses locally.”
A single floor of 9,000 sq ft remains available at the Grade A Livery Place offices, together with a self-contained 5,000 sq ft suite, which is ready to occupy.
Highcross has also developed a new Boutique suite offering at Livery Place in response to occupier demand for smaller quality office units with their own identity, within a larger established building. These units are being brought to the market in time for the historic busy period prior to Christmas.
Joint letting agents for the scheme are GBR Phoenix Beard and CBRE.
