Calthorpe Estates has welcomed yet another new occupier to Edgbaston, as established retail and leisure real estate agents, Wright Silverwood, announced its move to the heart of Edgbaston Village.

The specialist consultants provide lettings, disposals and acquisitions advice across all sectors, including high streets, shopping centres, out of town/roadside and leisure. Wright Silverwood’s experienced team has built up an impressive portfolio of high profile occupiers such as Tesco, The Works, Marks and Spencer, and Greggs. In addition, Wright Silverwood acts for landlords for companies such as Hortons Estate, Intu, Threadneedle, RLAM, Aviva and Sovereign Centros.

Moving to Greenfield Crescent, Wright Silverwood’s new location in Edgbaston Village, means the team can take advantage of the wide range of award-winning restaurant, bars and cafes, in addition to the retail and leisure offering. With on-site car parking and being within close-proximity to the national motorway network, it makes it easy for the team to drive to the majority of the UK’s urban centres and continue its unrivalled response time to client demands.

Andrew Benson, Director at Wright Silverwood, commented: “Moving onto the Calthorpe Estate is an exciting new chapter for our practice. Located less than a mile from Birmingham’s city centre means our new office location is perfect to ensure we are accessible to our clients, while the quality of our new office and the amenities within in the immediate vicinity of Edgbaston Village make it ideal when clients visit our practice.”

Wright Silverwood’s arrival continues Calthorpe Estate’s recent flurry of new occupiers, establishing the area as one of the region’s most progressive mixed-use estates and adding to its thriving communities. Over the last six months, businesses including Fisher’s Estate Agents, Donald Insall, Kat & Co Aesthetics, Elate Health and Childbase Nurseries have all relocated or opened new practices on the Estate, with more occupiers expected to be announced over the next few months.

Matt Long, Portfolio Development Director at Calthorpe Estates, added: “We are delighted to welcome another respected and established company to the Estate. Over the last few months, we have seen a real appetite for companies attracted to Edgbaston’s commercial centre as a result of its close proximity to Birmingham city centre whilst being on the outside of the Clean Area Congestion zone.

“Furthermore, the Calthorpe Estate and Edgbaston Village is proving to be a popular choice thanks to the high-quality leisure and lifestyle amenities, on-site car parking and excellent road, rail and public transport links, which are set to be enhanced further with the arrival of the Metro tram in 2021.’’
