The Courtyard secures 10,000 sq ft of lettings


Birmingham 6 February 2015 - Lettings totalling circa 10,000 sq ft have been secured at The Courtyard office development  in Solihull town centre.

Located off Warwick Road in Solihull Town Centre, The Courtyard provides office accommodation across nine buildings, all of which have received a comprehensive refurbishment and offer a contemporary and desirable commercial location.

The full 5,081 sq ft at 8 The Courtyard, has been secured by Orbit (Underwriting Agency) Ltd, which has relocated from its previous premises on Warwick Road, Acocks Green, while the ground and first floors of 6 The Courtyard, totalling 1,185 sq ft, have been let to Ellis Hass and Co Solicitors.

A further 1,336 sq ft – representing part of the second floor at 1 The Courtyard – has been secured by Priestley Crowe LLP, with the balance of the floor being taken by Chronos Oil & Gas and 900 sq ft has been let to BSL Strategic Ltd at 2 The Courtyard.
Suites at The Courtyard are available from 900 sq ft, with self-contained buildings up to circa 10,000 sq ft.  Quoting rent at The Courtyard is £18.50 per sq ft inclusive of an enviable car parking ratio.

Councillor Ian Courts, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Land at Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council, said: “Solihull Town Centre is home to a range of major national and international organisations as well as small and medium sized companies. It’s a great location and perfect access to anywhere in the country.

“Solihull has always been seen as a key location for successful and entrepreneurial companies. As a Council, we continue to work closely with our business community to bring in investment, create jobs and other business opportunities.”

The Courtyard’s location at the heart of the town centre places it within easy reach of Solihull’s amenities, with the Mell Square shopping centre directly opposite the development.

Clive Margetts from Priestley Crowe LLP, said: “The Courtyard provides us with the perfect combination of location, price and quality. The central courtyard setting offers us a great environment for staff recruitment and retention and the offices have been refurbished to an outstanding level, ensuring that we have everything that we need in terms of convenience.”

The Courtyard’s central location within Solihull places it only half a mile from Solihull train station and just 1.5 miles from Junction 5 of the M42, providing swift and accessible connections to the wider UK motorway network. There is also a very high parking ratio for a town centre location, at one space per 300 sq ft.

Jonathan Carmalt, JLL, said: “The Courtyard is set right in the heart of Solihull’s vibrant town centre, providing ready access to the town’s vast range of amenities. The landlord has done an outstanding job on the refurbishment of all of the buildings at The Courtyard, bringing them up to Grade A standard and providing an outstanding and unique opportunity for commercial occupiers looking for a quality, affordable office location within a bustling town centre location.”

To date, The Courtyard has attracted a number of professional services and IT type occupiers, including Handelsbanken, Millichips, PNF Surveyors, Tactile Technology and Accuvision.
