Birmingham: Expansion for Orega following 100% Occupancy
Serviced office provider Orega Ltd, which operates nine business centres around the UK, has recently announced that their Birmingham-based business centre is set to expand, having successfully filled all available space within phase one of the development.
Following an agreement with The Carlyle Group, owners of the building, Orega are now set to take an additional 7,500 sq ft of office space on the mezzanine level of the landmark Colmore Plaza property.
The additional space is set to bring a further 113 serviced office workstations to Birmingham, ranging in size from two-person suites to large open-plan space for up to 58 people. Clients will benefit from a separate reception area and meeting rooms on the ground floor, along with Orega’s high-quality fittings and professional on-site management staff, led by Sales & Centre Manager Caron Salter-Hill.
Work on the second phase of the building is currently underway with completion set for the end of September. Upon completion, the business centre will maintain a total of 17,500 sq ft of serviced space.
Although work on the new space is yet to be completed, Orega has already attracted an occupier in the form of Applause IT Limited, a recruitment company specialising in IT industry personnel, who has signed for eight workstations. The company are set to relocate from their existing offices in Moseley Gate upon completion of the new space.
Commenting on the news, Caron said: “Applause IT secured the space ‘off-plan’ which is quite unusual for serviced offices and underlines the appeal of Colmore Plaza business centre to the professional community.
“It’s a great start for our second phase, especially as we also have serious interest in a further significant amount of space.”
Mark Harris, director of The Carlyle Group, commented that the building is one of Birmingham’s “premier office locations” and benefits from an excellent location “right at the heart of the city’s business district”.
He added: “These high-quality serviced offices align perfectly with our ethos of providing a truly outstanding and varied offer and I am extremely pleased that Orega has succeeded in securing occupiers for this latest phase of its development so quickly.”
