The office agency team signed up the final two tenants, Irwin Mitchell Solicitors who took 46,750 sq ft and Global flooring company, Interface, who also took  7,589 sq ft.

Relaunched by Ashby Capital in 2016, after a £3.5m enhancement programme, The Colmore Building comprises 314,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over 14 storeys.

Irwin Mitchell and Interface join an array of global tenants including Chubb, Allianz, Investec, Grant Thornton, Hogan Lovells, Rathbones and Willis Towers Watson.

The building offers Birmingham’s broadest range of amenities, with a state-of-the-art gym, treatment rooms, bicycle parking, luxury changing rooms and a drying room, as well as a new private GP room and a recently expanded coffee house.

Jonathan Carmalt director office agency at JLL said: “The Colmore Building is right at the forefront of office wellbeing, creating a first-class working environment with an extensive range of amenities that Ashby Capital has significantly invested in, to help occupiers attract and retain talent in the city.

“We’re very proud to have been on the journey with Ashby Capital and to see The Colmore Building now fully let. Clearly the client’s understanding of the market and its confidence in its proposition has delivered an excellent result for all parties.”
