West Bromwich centre proving popular with refurbishment winning the day

Black Country commercial property specialists Bond Wolfe have announced a new letting at Kingston House in West Bromwich.

The first floor of 8,505 sq ft has been taken by Rehability UK Community Ltd and Urban Sky Housing Ltd. Both have signed a five-year lease.

It follows a significant investment by the landlord Real Estate Investors plc (REI) in fully refurbishing the first floor ahead of tenant occupancy as part of an ongoing commitment to the building.

The six-floor complex, mostly occupied by the National Health Service, is now fully let.

Paul Bassi, chief executive of REI, said: “Bond Wolfe continues to locate quality clients for office space in West Bromwich. The investment in refurbishment has certainly paid off, as has Bond Wolfe’s knowledge of the current market.”

James Mattin, managing partner of Bond Wolfe, said: “This deal represents a significant letting in West Bromwich town centre.

“It further highlights that landlords who are prepared to offer refurbished space to meet tenants’ needs will find good quality occupants even in a tough market.

“We are delighted that we have managed to fully let another building on behalf of clients. A number of the more unloved town centre buildings are undergoing conversion to residential so office availability there is certainly being squeezed.”

Kingston House occupies a prominent location on the main High Street, and affords excellent access to local transport networks including West Bromwich Bus Station, The Metro, M5 motorway and the main A41 Black Country Expressway.
