Freshwater Group has secured an inward investment letting of more than 5,000 sq ft of Grade A office space at the Birmingham city centre building, 10 Temple Street, to automation procurement firm, EU Automation.
EU Automation, a leading automation supplier to the manufacturing industry, is adding to its UK presence and making its mark in Birmingham, taking a total of 5,000 sq ft of prime office space on the 6th floor, for a term of five years.
Aside from needing larger office space, one of the major selling points for EU Automation was the building’s outstanding location, just seconds from the rail and tram links at New Street Station to attract diverse talent to their business.
Alex Andrews, Head of People at EU Automation said; “Adding an additional office in Birmingham’s core is an important part of EU Automation’s expansion plans.
“Moving from an out-of-town location to the city centre will help drive recruitment and build our presence further in the Midlands and the UK. Birmingham’s connectivity, both nationally and internationally, is key to this growth, and 10 Temple Street’s proximity to New Street Station also enables inward investment into the city. The office suite’s natural light and fantastic facilities also contributed to our decision to add an office in 10 Temple Street.”
Karolina Kuszowska, from the West Midlands Growth Company, who helped with the relocation of EU Automation, commented; “Birmingham is quickly becoming the city of choice for investment in the UK, and the relocation of EU Automation is another example of how the City’s great connectivity is helping drive this investment further.”
10 Temple Street delivers 36,000 sq ft of much-needed flexible and contemporary Grade A office accommodation, spread over seven floors, which is 80% let.
Jonathan Carmalt of JLL, represented the building’s landlord, Freshwater Group jointly with KWB. He said; “This is another letting milestone which highlights the investment in a building that truly offers the right space in the right place. We extend a warm welcome to EU Automation and their team to 10 Temple Street.”
10 Temple Street is midway between the City’s Business District and New Street Station and Grand Central shopping centre. Temple Street and the immediate area is home to an eclectic mix of independent café-bars, restaurants, retailers and commercial space.
JLL acted jointly with KWB as agents on behalf of 10 Temple Street owners, Freshwater Group.
