Some much-needed high quality office stock is coming to the Birmingham market, following the completion of refurbishment works at 10 Temple Street.
Opening onto one of the key pedestrian routes between Birmingham New Street station and the city core, the eight storey 10 Temple Street has been fully refurbished to offer 35,707 sq ft of Grade A specification commercial accommodation.
The building offers a contemporary feel, with office spaces featuring semi-exposed services and large windows providing plenty of light. Flexible floor plates from 4,909 sq ft provide a range of options for occupiers, with floors four to eight able to be split to accommodate multiple tenancies. Quoting rents for 10 Temple Street are from £19.95 per sq ft.
All common areas, including the main entrance and reception, have also been remodeled and upgraded, with the reception featuring an innovative disabled sesame lift which folds away into the building’s stairs at the push of a button when not in use.
Externally, 10 Temple Street has received new signage and a brand new façade including a refreshed entrance and cladding to reflect the modern and high quality spaces inside.
JLL and KWB act as joint letting agents for the building.
Jonathan Carmalt, JLL, said: “10 Temple Street represents the best of both worlds for occupiers, providing vibrant offices in a city centre address at a cost effective price point.
“Since the completion of the refurbishment of New Street station and realignment of the main access to Stephenson Street, Temple Street has become an even more popular street, linking the Colmore Business District to the station and retail areas.”
John Bryce, KWB, said: “Temple Street continues to see significant levels of interest and investment from a range of sectors, with interest from commercial and retail occupiers. 10 Temple Street is ideally situated to reap maximum benefit from this ongoing process of regeneration and improvement, with the city’s central business district and a range of transport connections right on the doorstep.”
The building was completely stripped back to its frame to enable the scale of refurbishment that building owners, Freshwater Group, wanted to achieve, allowing them to install a new mechanical and electrical system, including lifts, LED lighting and comfort cooling services.
Andrew Thomson from building owner Freshwater, said: “Our view is that 10 Temple Street represents an ideal location for any occupier and represents a leading example of sustainable commercial space in Birmingham, having now secured a high Energy Performance Certificate B rating.
We wanted this building to be as sustainable as possible and have worked hard to ensure that the systems that have been put in place meet the requirements of modern occupiers.”
In recognition of its easily accessible city centre location, 10 Temple Street offers cycle provision in the basement with secure storage racks, showers, lockers and male and female changing facilities, all of which is accessed directly from the rear of the building or via the building’s reception.
Temple Street is on the doorstep of Birmingham’s Colmore Business District, home to a number of blue chip and professional services occupiers as well as some of Birmingham city centre’s best coffee shops, bars and restaurants.
New Street and Snow Hill stations are both within easy walking distance of 10 Temple Street, as are the Grand Central and Bullring shopping centres, providing occupiers with a vast range of different transport and leisure opportunities.
