A Warrington office scheme bucking the trend!
Bauer Group, a Berkshire-based asset and development management company, has successfully completed a number of recent deals at Quay Business Centre in Warrington. Navigating a turbulent 18-months for the commercial property market, recent deals to occupiers including Empire Aesthetics and Beacon Financial Training coming following a comprehensive refurbishment of the entire scheme.
Quay Business Centre comprises 46,000 sqft and was acquired by Bauer Group in 2018 as part of the Amazon portfolio of assets. The scheme is made up of 15, two-storey units, with recent lettings reflecting the multitude of options on site – from smaller, serviced suites to larger, self-contained offices. The largest of these options saw technology company Tela Communications taking 2,609 sqft on a 5-year term.
Despite a year characterised by the Covid-19 pandemic causing relative uncertainty for occupiers, the choice of refurbished options at Quay Business Centre provided a number of new tenants with the space required for those whom ‘the office’ remains an integral part of working life.
Katie-Ruth Staniec, Centre Manager at Quay Business Centre, said “We have seen a good level of activity across the board at Bauer, with our flexible office offerings in several locations across England welcoming new tenancies. We put this down to our ‘can do’ attitude to providing a turnkey solution for our tenants, making a relocation a much simpler process for businesses.”
Greg O’Hara, joint letting agent from BE Group, added “Office enquiries are now at pre-pandemic levels, which is a promising characteristic of the market as we count down to the easing of Covid-19 restrictions. Occupiers are reviewing their space requirements, and rightfully so, to create a better and more flexible working environment for staff.”
BE Group and Roberts Vein Wilshaw are the joint letting agents at Quay Business Centre acting on behalf of Bauer Group.
