Veterinary group takes space in Solihull office building

The UK’s leading veterinary group has acquired space in a Solihull office building.

In a deal brokered by Birmingham and Solihull-based independent commercial property agency KWB, on behalf of landlord Topland Mercury Group, Linnaeus Group has taken a new 10 year lease on 7,979 sq ft of office space at Friars Gate, Stratford Road, Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands, B90 4BN, at a quoting rent of £19.75 psf.

Solihull-based Linnaeus Group has 87 veterinary practice sites, including five specialist referral centres, one of which is Solihull veterinary practice Willows. In June year (2018) Linnaeus was acquired by Mars Petcare’s Veterinary Health Group.

Linnaeus Group joins the Audit Commission, Aviva, Bromford Housing Association, Energy & Utility Skills and Solihull Care Trust in Friars Gate. The 71,494 sq ft multi-let office building is fully let following the deal with Linnaeus Group.

Malcolm Jones, Head of Office Agency at KWB says: “Quality office space, especially with good car parking provision which there is at Friars Gate, is in short supply in Solihull.”
