BMSL and Orion Shipping have both taken a 944 sq ft suite, at £13 psf. They join Leach Group, who recently moved into an 1,100 sq ft suite. The latest deals mean that the west wing of the 6th floor of the tri-winged building is now fully occupied. Nurton purchased the former Quadrant West property, 210-222 Hagley Road West, in 2006 and spent £1.5 million on a complete makeover of the building, including transforming the exterior elevations.
Guy Bowden, Nurton Director, said “The completion of the refurbishment works has significantly increased the enquiries we have received at TriGate.” The landmark building is on the corner of Hagley Road West and the Wolverhampton Road, just minutes from Junctions 2 and 3 of the M5. TriGate offers up to 12,000 sq ft of open-plan floorplates on each level, comprising 3,896 sq ft in each wing, and totalling 73,000 sq ft.
The refurbished property includes a new comfort cooling system, new ceilings, upgraded lighting and new carpeting, together with a refurbished central core, with enlarged reception area. Other occupiers include Provident Financial Ltd, Reliant Security Services, PPG Industries and serviced offices providers Flexibase Ltd.
Nurton says the suites are aimed at occupiers not requiring a Birmingham City Centre address, but who want city centre-standard accommodation. Duncan Scott of KWB, joint agents for TriGate along with King Sturge, says “There are very few notable office landmarks on the western side of Birmingham, of which TriGate is one of the most prominent, plus it occupies an ideal location close to the motorway and city centre.”
