Ventia’s Property Portfolio Continues to Pick up Pace
Ventia’s latest acquisition is located in Midtown, central London
As the latest addition to their growing portfolio of serviced offices across London, Bristol and the Thames Valley, Ventia’s new Midtown centre is typical of their offering to clients. Professional space, a key business location, access to transport networks and on-site services – these features have become synonymous with the company’s brand and consistently fills the gap for businesses that need a practical, quality solution for their workspace requirements.
Located on Furnival Street in London’s Midtown, their 11th property forms part of a carefully targeted set of locations as explained by company Director, Daniel Wheble.
“As the Ventia portfolio has continued to grow we have been targeting key areas with proven high demand for our product, and Midtown has been at the top of this list,” he said. “Combining this with our existing sites in Mayfair, South Kensington and Liverpool Street gives us a stronger presence in the key areas of Central London.”
The Furnival Street building was added to the officebroker.com website at the end of February, and since then enquiries have been flooding in – proving that the property is certainly in an area of high demand.
Among those handling enquiries for Central London at officebroker.com is experienced Account Manager Kirsty Lees, who along with the rest of the London team, has played a significant part in increasing occupancy at a number of Ventia business centres in the capital.
“I’m consistently hearing very positive feedback from my sales guys regarding the officebroker.com team, especially Kirsty Lees,” said Daniel, who also commended Richard Nash for the high level of service he has provided and the clients that he has introduced to their South Kensington and Wimbledon centres.

“We have opened a number of new centres in the past few months and officebroker.com are, without a shadow of a doubt, the most responsive of all brokers and will do what is needed to get the deal done,” Daniel added.
On the subject of their new centres, 2010 was indeed a busy year for Ventia. The company more than doubled its portfolio within the 12-month period and expanded into a number of new locations, pushing their boundaries to create a presence in key locations such as The City, Mayfair, Wimbledon, South Kensington and Marlow.
The company’s commitment to targeting areas with proven high demand was epitomised with the launch of Glen House, their South Kensington property, in August of last year. Within two hours of the centre appearing on the officebroker.com website, Account Manager Jade Edwards had already organised a tour of the office for one of her clients, and over the next few days arranged several more tours for interested clients.
“It’s in a really good location for all the obvious reasons such as direct access to central London,” said Jade. “South Kensington has always been a high demand area, and we’ve had a lot of interest for this area because clients want the prestige of the SW postcode at an affordable rate.”
As well as expanding their property portfolio, Ventia have also brought new team members on-board to support the board of directors, such as Commercial Managers Steve Foster and Tom Gaydon, which suggests that the company are preparing to strengthen their portfolio yet again.
So just a few short weeks into 2011, off the back of a highly successful 2010 and with one centre launch already behind them, Ventia look set to continue their expansion trail and the industry is poised for the announcement of more good news over the coming months.
