Deals mean prominent city centre offices now full

A brace of lettings at Newminster House on Baldwin Street means the refurbished office, a stone’s throw from Bristol Bridge, is now full.

Rhys Jones from Bruton Knowles’ Bristol office said the deals would further reduce supply in the City Centre.

He said: “Digital agency Edico Media has taken 922 sq ft on the second floor while Simitive, a Global leader in Organisational Effectiveness, has snapped up 2,700 sq ft on the 4th floor.

“Newminster House is in a prominent position on the corner of Baldwin Street and St Stephen’s Street. The fact that this stylish, seven-storey property is now full underlines the strength of the market for smaller, quality office suites which ideally suit the SME sector.”

He added: “Newminster House has proved popular with TMT and service businesses such as recruitment consultants or other professional services uses.  Add on benefits of this building include the Foundations café on the ground floor.

“With an on-site commissionaire, air-conditioning, refurbished open plan offices, a modern and spacious reception area, plus on-site parking, Newminster House ticks all the boxes for city centre space.

“It also offers bike storage and showers, increasingly seen as a must have in today’s office market.”

Rhys Jones said many SME’s were finding it difficult to source cost effective office space in the city centre following the high volume of office space which has been or is being converted to residential use.

“There was considerable interest in taking the space at Newminster House and we are actively seeking similar buildings to meet demand from businesses on our books.”

Bruton Knowles acted jointly with Burston Cook on behalf of private clients. Edico Media were represented by Savills.
