One of Brindleyplace’s flagship tenants has increased its space by a fifth just weeks after the sale of the estate.
GVA Grimley’s Birmingham office has taken an additional 6,660 sq ft, bringing its total occupation at Three Brindleyplace to 33,260 sq ft.
The property consultancy, which was one of the estate’s first tenants back in 1998, will now occupy part of the ground, first and fourth floors.
Ian Stringer, Regional Senior Director at GVA Grimley, said: “Since our move to Brindleyplace almost 12 years ago, the firm has benefited from the quality, flexible office space provided at Three Brindleyplace.
The building has allowed the business to grow into the 350 strong team we are today, despite the recent difficult economic conditions.
“With safe and secure car parking provision, a range of excellent facilities for staff and an intensively managed environment, the estate provides a well-connected base to attract not only quality employees but also the clients needed to continue to grow the business.”
The deal follows Hines Global REIT and Moorfield’s completion of the £190m acquisition of eight buildings at Brindleyplace last month. The acquisition included the purchase of Three Brindleyplace from The Brindleyplace Limited Partnership.
Igor Mathias of Hines said: “GVA Grimley is one of Brindleyplace’s longest standing and valued tenants. The news of the property consultancy’s expansion is testament to the quality of the office accommodation on offer at the estate, as well as the variety of amenities that make this internationally renowned location extremely attractive to both businesses at the estate and leisure visitors from much further afield.”
