Occupiers, Lorne Stuart and Christian Education have both recently relocated to the scheme from nearby locations.
Kings Norton Business Centre, picture right, has proven to be a key location for offices in South Birmingham that is attracting new occupiers from a variety of different areas. These transactions also highlight the park’s appeal to a wide range of business sectors.
Alastair Dawson, of CBRE Asset Management, said: “This is great news. The variety of commercial property at Kings Norton Business Centre, coupled with great transport links, drives the broad appeal we see here, and we’re delighted to bring these new office occupiers to the Centre in such a short space of time.
“Occupiers looking for office space in areas such as Bromsgrove and Redditch soon realise that being located at Kings Norton still offers the access to their traditional markets, but also opens up greater access to the wider Birmingham market and a more plentiful labour supply. Southern fringe areas of Greater Birmingham offer a viable alternative to regional market towns, offering better business prospects and connectivity. This is a considerable factor in the rise in popularity of Kings Norton Business Centre that we have seen this year.”
The largest new occupier, engineers Lorne Stewart, relocated from their offices in Redditch to 4,100 sq ft of refurbished office space at Imperial Court, pictured right, on the park, whilst Christian Education relocated from freehold offices in Selly Oak.
The final suite at Imperial Court is now under offer to a government department which, once complete, will leave the phase 100% occupied.
A further phase at the adjacent Regal Court has a total of 9,537 sq ft available in suites from 1,906 sq ft. The joint letting agents for the office scheme are KWB and Cushman & Wakefield.
