Deals struck with 3 firms for space at Nottingham’s revamped East West development

Following the £7 million redevelopment of EastWest on Maid Marian Way in Nottingham, a further three tenants have leased more than 16,500 sq. ft. of office space.

An international domain registry and web hosting company has taken 5,500 sq ft of bespoke designed workspace within EastWest, signing a five-year lease. The Let Ready by CEG team has created a contemporary office as a full turnkey solution. Two further deals have been agreed with leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM UK taking 7,500 sq. ft. and Roythornes Ltd taking 3,291 sq. ft. on 10-year leases.

Ann Barrasso, operations director for Roythornes Limited, said: “As a firm we had been in Nottingham for several years but were ready, due to our ambitious expansion programme, to move to an office which reflected the law firm we are now, rather than the one we were some years ago.

“In addition, of course, we were keen to improve the working environment for our talented team – it’s so important that we look after our people and that staff look forward to coming in to work. We’re delighted to say that EastWest ticked all the boxes – it gives us a brilliant base for the firm and our staff love the building, the environment and the facilities. We’re looking forward to continuing to build our business from our new home.”

Sheetal Sanghvi, managing partner in the East Midlands at RSM UK, said: “As part of our commitment to the East Midlands region, we’re thrilled to have extended our lease at the newly refurbished EastWest offices for the next decade. We look forward to welcoming our team, clients and contacts to our new home very soon, where we will continue to support fantastic businesses in the city and across the region.”

Alex Goode, investment manager at CEG, added: “We’re delighted to welcome three further businesses with strong covenants to EastWest. The building has fast become a thriving business community following its comprehensive modern refurbishment.

“Tenants are attracted to our Let Ready Custom offer as it provides design and fit out, so once they choose the space and style, we deliver all the benefits of a bespoke workspace. Our experienced in-house team manages the process from start-to-finish. Sharing best practices and meeting business goals from design and layout to productivity, health and sustainability, Let Ready guarantees your space is delivered on time, to budget and to the highest standard.”

Mark Tomlinson, Director at FHP which is the agent on the scheme, commented: “EastWest represents the ‘best in class’ office offering in Nottingham following its substantial refurbishment. In particular, the building offers the high-quality finishes and lifestyle aspects which are sought after by occupiers with the onsite café restaurant and a particular emphasis on the occupier experience. The flexible ways in which CEG can structure deals means that we can cater for a broad range of requirements on size, lease length, fit out design and financial packages to suit prospective occupiers needs.”

EastWest offers an on-site Life team dedicated to making occupiers’ lives easier and healthier. They, along with the dedicated Life app, will help to create a more collaborative and productive community, be it booking meeting rooms, arranging dry cleaning, organising events in the café, catering, bike maintenance or fitness classes, to local shopping and activity discounts.

Centrally located on Maid Marian Way, East West is home to KPMG, Equifax, Nottingham Trent University, Arup, JLL, Faithful & Gould, Scape Group and RSM UK.
