Trio of Lettings at One Temple Row

07 June 2022

A trio of office lettings has been completed at One Temple Row in Birmingham.

Law firm Capsticks has signed a ten-year lease on 6,987 sq ft on the 12th floor, while media agency MediaCom has taken 2,753 sq ft on the third floor, also on a ten-year lease. 

Existing tenant Greens Solicitors has also expanded within the building, doubling its office space by taking a further 2,900 sq ft and relocating from the eighth to the fifth floor. It has agreed a ten-year lease with landlord Aviva Investors.

CBRE advised Aviva on the lettings to MediaCom and Greens Solicitors, with joint agents Cushman & Wakefield advising on the letting to Capsticks. 

Located in the Colmore Business District, One Temple Row comprises 98,235 sq ft of office space over 12 floors. 

Aviva has invested £1 million in a comprehensive refurbishment of the building since acquiring it in 2019, adding a large roof terrace and introducing new tenant amenities, including cycle storage, shower and changing facilities, bookable meeting rooms, informal break-out areas and a coffee shop. 

The office accommodation has also been refurbished to bring it up to modern, Grade A standards. 

In response to the evolving office market and occupiers’ needs, One Temple Row has been completely repositioned in the market and now offers a range of traditional office suites to suit all business sizes, from 1,252 sq ft to 6,987 sq ft. A number of smaller suites also have access to their own private roof terrace.

Theo Holmes, senior director and head of office agency at CBRE Birmingham, said: “Aviva’s investment in the building to improve both the office accommodation and tenant experience is paying dividends, as evidenced by these recent lettings.”

David Rigby, partner at Cushman & Wakefield Birmingham, added: “These lettings are further examples of the flight to quality we are seeing from companies looking to improve their accommodation for their employees’ return to work.”
