Refurbishment attracts new occupier at Cavendish House

A leading professional services business in Birmingham is relocating to new offices in the heart of the Colmore Business District, committing to a 10-year lease at Cavendish House.

The move by Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group marks the company’s 15-year anniversary of serving SMEs across the city and the wider Midlands area.

Its established team will move into 2,784 sq ft in Cavendish House – Grade A office accommodation which has been recently refurbished.

Leonard Curtis Birmingham is one of three offices covering the Midlands with a presence in Wolverhampton and  Worcester and is one of 19 across the UK, including an offshore division on Guernsey, employing 240 people.

It supports the UK’s 5.7million SME owners, their stakeholders and professional advisers on financial and operational issues faced at every stage of a business’ lifecycle.

JLL’s Andy Riach who acts as joint agent with Charles Warrack from Johnson Fellows, said the letting recognised the significant investment from landlords, Croudace Properties, in the new amenity offering at Cavendish House, including a stylish new reception and class-leading communal areas.

“Clearly the business district is going through a period of readjustment after the lockdown, however I’m pleased to say we are still seeing activity, particularly for quality offices with landlords who understand the needs of the modern occupier and offer a flexible approach to occupation.

“Wellbeing has long been a focus, but now more than ever it’s the primary driver and Cavendish House offers plenty of bright, open space with a new reception and fantastic communal breakout areas and meeting rooms, essential for collaboration and to stimulate innovation and future business strategy.”

Conrad Beighton, from Leonard Curtis, said the company had been impressed with the refurbishment and would certainly benefit from it. “Cavendish House is the perfect fit for our needs and a great foundation for the next phase of our development, having established a 15-year reputation for business services in the city. We look forward to welcoming our team here and inviting in clients, other professional advisors and colleagues from across the UK.”

Croudace Properties also continue to push ahead with the refurbishment of an identical suite in support of the city centre’s long-term growth and in anticipation of the demand as businesses continue to assess their future office needs.

Andy continues: “The highly adaptable floor plates, flexible lease terms, and extensive communal space, are particularly attractive at the current time to businesses and provides an affordable option for start-ups and SME’s who want to plug in and go in a central location within the business district.”

Cavendish House offers in excess of 28,000 sq ft over eight floors. It can accommodate businesses requiring  suites from 500 sq ft with current availability from 1,200 sq ft up to 2,800 sq ft.

The central Birmingham location of Cavendish House is well connected, with New Street and Snow Hill Railway Station a five-minute walk away, the Metro tram readily available and bus services a 2-minute walk from Colmore Row. Visit www.cavendishhouse-birmingham.co.uk
