​​£6M refurbishment programme delivered as park enjoys lowest vacancy rate

New 25,000 sq ft Grade A office building unveiled


Major owner of Birmingham Business Park - BlackRock, has delivered the latest phase of a £6 million rolling refurbishment programme, with the unveiling of a new 25,000 sq ft Grade A office building.

BlackRock purchased a substantial holding on Birmingham Business Park near junction 6 of the M42 in 2015, with Canmoor retained as an asset management partner.

Availability on the Park has reduced significantly over the past two years resulting in the lowest vacancy rate in a decade.  Following completion of the recent refurbishment programme, space is available to let in buildings ranging from 1,500 sq ft to 25,500 sq ft.

Rolls-Royce has completed a 300,000 sq ft research and development facility for its Controls and Data Services on the Park, further establishing the location, joining other corporate occupiers including EE, Fujitsu, IMI and Severn Trent. There are already over 7,000 people working on the park and it is anticipated Rolls-Royce will prove to be a catalyst to attract similar businesses. This is already evident with Changan Automotive acquiring 80,000 sq ft in 2015.

Jonathan Carmalt from joint letting agents, JLL believes the park's ongoing success is also down to the creation of a strong community feel.
