Oh, what will happen to Swordfish records?

I actually quite like the ramshackle nature of those little streets leading to St. Philips, one of the few parts of the city that has proper old style character.

Good start to 2013 for office take up

Two companies have taken more than 30,000 sq ft of Grade A office space in Birmingham city centre.

Serviced office supplier i2 Office has taken more than 28,000 sq ft in Three Brindleyplace on a 15 year term.

Property and infrastructure consultancy Capita Symonds, part of the Capita Group, has signed a 10 year lease for 5,700 sq ft of office space on the first floor of Eleven Brindleyplace, relocating from its previous Birmingham premises at York House, Great Charles Street and Quadrant Court in Edgbaston.

The lettings mark the first Birmingham location for i2 Office, which already has offices in other UK cities including London, Manchester and Glasgow.


The company will occupy the building’s second and third floors which will be converted into serviced office units managed by i2 Office.

Philip Grace, chief executive of i2 Office, said: “We understand that there is a healthy demand within Birmingham for serviced offices of the highest quality and opening at Three Brindleyplace is a perfect fit for i2 with our strategy of locating the best business centre facilities in prime Grade A office buildings.”

Construction cost management consultancy Northcroft, which was acquired by Capita Symonds in March last year, has joined Capita Symonds at Eleven Brindleyplace.

Steven Handley, divisional director Capita Symonds, said: “Eleven Brindleyplace offers a number of creative features for occupiers, such as the integrated reception and Meetingspace facilities, which have enabled is to reduce both our floor space requirements and general overheads.”

^^ also a good start to industrial/warehouse lettings too

A Birmingham freight distribution company is to move to a huge new purpose built warehouse at a Midland industrial park.

International industrial property developer Prologis has signed a lease agreement with The Pallet Network (TPN) for a 367,500 sq ft cross-docked facility at Prologis Park Midpoint in Minworth, which will allow the company to expand its capacity.


TPN has occupied a 312,000 sq ft distribution hub at Midpoint since January 2010.

Construction work will start in early 2013 and completion is planned for the end of the year.


Andrew Griffiths, managing director Prologis UK, said: “We have been working with TPN for a number of years and it is very good news that the company has chosen to stay with Prologis.

“There is now a very short supply of standing stock, so we are pleased that we are able to offer our customers strategic land opportunities that we can develop on a build-to-suit basis.”

Adam Leonard, managing director of TPN, said: “Midpoint is the perfect location for our business and we are delighted at the prospect of moving to a larger building on the same site.

“Since we are within easy reach of 11 motorway junctions, we can provide the best possible service to our members and their customers. “This new facility will not only allow us to develop our business, it will also help us to secure our long-term future in the West Midlands.”

The new distribution centre will be the third Prologis building that TPN has occupied.

The company originally leased a 224,000 sq ft unit at Prologis Central Park Rugby before expanding into the speculatively-built 312,000 sq ft distribution centre at Prologis Park Midpoint.

I went past it myself and there's some sort of slogan to the right of it. Also it does look a lot smaller than it did originally.
