The tenant, a global award-winning life science recruitment company, are relocating their Head Office from nearby Horley, which has been its home since 2002. The company, which now operates in six countries across three continents are at the forefront of providing the Life Science industry, a trade which has become the topic of every household during the global pandemic, with first-class and essential employees. It has taken a lease of the entire 2nd Floor (10,459 sq ft) on a seven-year lease.
Reflecting on their decision to relocate to Crawley, Dan Barrington CEO at Barrington James Limited explains: “We know that committing £1 million on a new office at this time is a brave move but it reflects the confidence we have in our staff and our business. The investment in our new office, along with new technology will help cement our position as not only the leading Global Pharmaceutical Recruiter but also the most progressive and best local employer in the recruitment sector and we couldn’t be more excited for the future.”
Will Foster, Partner in National Offices at Knight Frank, comments: “This letting is testament to the quality of the refurbishment at Galleria and also demonstrates the ongoing appeal of Crawley town centre. This is the third recent letting at Galleria, taking it to nearly 70% let. All the occupiers have relocated into Crawley town centre from outlying locations, reflecting the provision of multi-mode transport and a wide range of amenities on the doorstep. We have good interest in the balance of the space and hope to announce other lettings shortly.”
The landlord was advised by DTRE and Knight Frank.
