Following Circle Property’s acquisition of the 16,328 sq ft building in 2013, KWB commercial property agents advised on the specification of the comprehensive refurbishment, and even design finishes, of the office building which now has a new lift, reception area and communal facilities for tenants.
Cheltenham House, which targets the shortage of premium office space in Birmingham city centre in the sub 1,000 sq ft category, has also undergone installation of new lighting, trunking and cabling to each of its 24 office suites. The external façade has been cleaned and restored. The premises comprise 7,364 sq ft of office space, over three floors, and a ground floor leisure unit of 5,780 sq ft.
Of the property and its popularity, KWB’s Mark Robinson said “To have been working with Circle on this project from the date of their purchase, it is particularly satisfying to now see the building achieve the success that it deserves.”
Incumbent tenant, solicitors Broomhall & Co, remained in situ during the works, and has been joined by:
- Birmingham Law Society
- Weight loss consultants Lighter Life
- Photographers Alex Mae Studios
- Promotions and retail agency Engaging Faces
- Property investor and developer Antringham Estates
- PR consultants Headline Communications
A further two office units are under offer.
Elizabeth Dziergas, office manager at Birmingham Law Society, said: “Cheltenham House won us over from our very first viewing. The high quality refurbishment, combined with the building’s period character, singled it out, along with the flexible letting terms.”
The ground floor unit is let to The Botanist, an award-winning boutique pub chain which specialises in cocktails and craft beers, and is currently being fitted out.
Just over 3,000 sq ft of office space remains to be let at Cheltenham House, which is highly accessible from St Philips Churchyard, Colmore Row and the established professional core. Office units are available from 129 sq ft – 700 sq ft, on flexible lease agreements from £18 per sq ft per annum. KWB is joint letting agent working alongside JLL.
