Bowlplex, which promotes its service offering under the strapline ‘The Great Indoors’, operates bowling sites at 17 locations across mainland GB, from as far north as Dunfermline all the way to the South coast of England.
Speaking about the company’s office relocation, Mark Sergeant, CEO of Bowlplex Ltd said:
“The location at Parkside is ideal as it is geographically within easy reach of all of our bowling centres. The office space at Birmingham Business Park will serve as our new head office with 15 staff initially based there.”
KWB partner, Mark Robinson, who acted jointly with GBR Phoenix Beard on behalf of the landlord, commented:
“Towards the end of last year, we predicted that due to the growing lack of availability of office space in Solihull and the M42 corridor, more occupiers would be forced to move north up the M42 resulting in Birmingham Business Park being likely to experience a key year in 2014 with increased occupier demand.
“This was borne out in the first quarter of this year, which demonstrated a marked increase in demand for offices at Birmingham Business Park. 28% (16,674 sq ft) of the quarter’s office space take-up was at the Park, proving that a well located and well specified business park will attract occupiers.
“This further transaction for office space at Birmingham Business Park continues the trend for attracting investment from blue chip occupiers and household names such as Bowlplex, who enjoy the benefits of great access to the region’s transport infrastructure through being located close to Birmingham Airport, International Train Station and J6 of the M42.”
Other tenants at 3800 Parkside include waste management company Biffa, commercial property agents Altus Edwin Hill, data centre and managed office solutions specialist Portal Group, and leading multi-disciplinary infrastructure consultancy Opus International.
3800 Parkside forms part of four office developments in the ‘Parkside’ scheme. Remaining Grade ‘A’ office space at Parkside, Birmingham Business Park ranges from 1,600 sq ft to 18,000 sq ft.
