A distinctive period building fronting Moor Street Queensway in central Birmingham is on the look-out for potential occupiers.
Island House, owned by Quintain Estates and Development plc, is a 10,600 sq ft (985 sq m), three-storey building within Quintain’s City Park Gate development which is part of the Birmingham Eastside regeneration scheme. The triangular Island House has planning consent for office and retail use and is located opposite the site for a new four-star, 200-bedroom Hotel La Tour, expected to be completed in 2011.
Ben Giddens, Quintain’s development director for City Park Gate, said: “Island House offers an occupier, owner-occupier or investor a fantastic opportunity to establish a foothold at the gateway to Birmingham’s most important development district.
“The Eastside stakeholders are making great progress, even in the current climate, with a new University campus, the Magistrates’ Court and a 200-room hotel all committed. The gateway to Eastside will be very different in two to three years’ time, and Island House will sit at the heart of this activity.”
Savills has been appointed to market the building on behalf of Quintain.Nick Williams, a director at Savills’ Birmingham office, said: “Island House’s position with the Eastside regeneration area, as well as its proximity to Moor Street railway station and the centre of Birmingham, make it an obvious target for potential occupiers and developers.”
