Southampton’s White Building welcomes five new tenants

JLL and LSH on a winning streak at the White Building despite Brexit uncertainty


Southampton, 7 November 2016 – A flurry of new tenants at the White Building in Southampton with two more in the pipeline indicates that demand for high quality space in the city remains strong despite wider economic uncertainty following the Brexit vote.

The 50,000 sq ft building, also now linked to the smaller 13,500 sq ft Latimer House, provides one of the best designed office environments in Southampton and is welcoming four new businesses within the last two months – Yo Telecom, JCF Works, Regis Bentley and Novum Law. They join Wessex Petroleum who relocated to the building in August. Collectively, they have taken a total of 7,056 sq ft.

Further space is currently under offer and interest remains strong on the remaining floors.

The lettings come off the back of a successful summer for the White Building after it picked up two awards at the South Coast Property Awards in July – Development of the Year and Workplace Environment of the Year.

Nella Pang, associate director at JLL, said: “The vision at the White Building was to transform the space and create a practical and design-led office scheme and one which businesses would be proud to occupy.

“The strong demand we are experiencing here shows that there is a real need for high quality space like this. The White Building is undoubtedly one of the best offices available in the city centre.”

Andrew Hodgkinson, director at LSH, said: “We are pleased to be able to provide occupiers with flexible accommodation to accommodate their requirements, whether it be 200 sq ft or 32,000 sq ft on traditional lease terms or on flexible leases.”

Andrew Oliver, letting manager at Ashville Asset Management, which manages the building, said: “The quality of a company’s workplace is an important factor in securing and retaining talented employees. As the lines between home and work life continue to blur, providing a high quality, attractive working environment with great facilities will allow businesses to attract the best talent. It also encourages a better company culture and improved staff creativity and productivity.”
