Rexel UK, the leading distributor of electrical supplies, has acquired 8,738 sq ft of high quality office space at Eagle 2 as part of its UK restructuring programme. Taking part of the ground floor, the company has signed a 10 year lease on the Grade ‘A’ Solihull offices, which will become the base for the company’s Newey & Eyre division. Office space design and move management consultancy KWB Workplace has also been retained to assist in the office space planning and procurement of fit-out works.
The letting to Rexel UK coincides with Virgin Media’s decision to secure a further 11,000 sq ft of Grade ‘A’ office space at Eagle 2, doubling its occupation to 22,000 sq ft. The company, which has been based at the Eagle Court offices in Solihull since the beginning of 2010, has taken the whole of the second floor, allowing the entertainment and communications provider to consolidate its operations and existing commercial property portfolio.
The prestigious headquarter office building, which is situated in a prominent position just off the A45 Coventry Road and adjacent to Birmingham Airport, is already home to vehicle leasing and contract hire company Lloyds TSB Autolease. Offering exceptional on-site office car parking and an accessible location, the high specification Solihull offices benefit from comfort cooling and an impressive full height glazed atrium.
The recent letting further demonstrates how Eagle Court has outperformed the marketplace. Not only do the Solihull offices offer excellent, high quality office space at competitive rates, but the development has also established itself as an attractive location for companies looking to set-up headquarter offices.
