Birmingham-based office specialists, KWB, have secured another substantial batch of occupiers for Jewellery Quarter offices at 50-54 St Paul’s Square, including several investment purchases.
50-54 St Paul’s Square‘s Jewellery Quarter offices attract a diverse range of professional occupiers. In this latest flurry, unit 12 was purchased by Fresh PR, units 17, 25 and 26 were bought by Central Finance Holdings and Studio 2 was bought by MGR Appraisals. A further four of the office units were purchased as ‘buy-to-let’ investments.
Of their new Jewellery Quarter offices, Amanda Kinbrum, managing director of Fresh PR, said: “The lease on our office was due for renewal and, out of curiosity, I looked online at offices to buy in Birmingham. 50-54 came up straight away and I absolutely fell in love with the idea of purchasing our own office.
“We went to look around and were not disappointed, so began to enquire about mortgages. We were amazed to find that it would only cost £100 a month more than our current rent, which was set to rise anyway. As a small business owner, it’s a great feeling to own our office. With all the development projects in Birmingham, property prices can only go up, so we feel that we have made a brilliant investment.
“Now that we’re based in our new offices, it’s wonderful – the lovely courtyard setting, high beamed ceilings and big windows. The staff are really happy to be here. St Paul’s Square is one of the nicest professional areas in Birmingham – it’s close to the train station, it feels safe, it’s close to the city centre and we have all amenities at our fingertips.”
The new occupiers are joining a list that already includes multimedia company Koala TV, Margetts Fund Management, H&S Solicitors and James Andrews Recruitment Solutions.
The success of the scheme – which, at this rate of take-up, is expected to be fully sold within the next few months – has led KWB to call on smaller businesses to act now.
Malcolm Jones of KWB commercial property agents, picture right, said: “The rate of take up here has been excellent, we’re delighted as are our clients. To occupiers, I would say that interest in these offices is very strong. With only two units remaining, you need to act now to avoid disappointment.”
