Search Office Space Adds New Business Centre in Exclusive Knightsbridge

SOS > Search Office Space expands its world class commercial real estate database of serviced offices further with the latest addition of a prestigious business centre in London’s exclusive Knightsbridge.

The new serviced offices in Knightsbridge offer clients the opportunity to do business in one of London’s premier addresses. In addition, the new business centre offers an impressive package of office services and IT capacity that is scaled to fit business needs of any size.

The new business centre in Knightsbridge is in one of the most exclusive commercial and residential parts of London. Lying to the west of Central London, the new centre is in close proximity to Belgravia, Chelsea, Mayfair and Hyde Park.

An up market district, very few office space providers have managed to gain entry in this exclusive area. Home to major national luxury retailers such as the iconic Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and Peter Jones, Knightsbridge is also the chosen bases of renowned international designers such as Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik. The high concentration of top end commercial activity makes Knightsbridge an office space market unlike any other in metropolitan London. In addition, Knightsbridge is only one of two international centres under further development through the London Plan. The purpose of the development proposals under the London Plan is to build on the current economic base and promote internationally.

The market for Knightsbridge office rentals is among the most expensive and attractive in the world. Being a commercial hub, the area is in high demand not only from the residential sector but also from the commercial sector. With such a strong demand for commercial office space in Knightsbridge, very few firms actually succeed in acquiring business in this market. The historically consistent demand for Knightsbridge office rentals is largely unaffected by high letting rates which currently average £110.79 per square foot. This is an increase from rates of £103.46 during September. While other high price markets around the world have shown a decline in demand and rental rates, prices for office space in Knightsbridge have remained relatively stable. The new business centre is due to open in April 2009, however, serviced office space is currently being let off plan.

Richard Smith, SOS > Search Office Space Managing Director and founder commented: “This new addition in Knightsbridge is ideal, especially since the options for office space to rent are limited in the area. I would not be surprised to see the centre opening in April with an occupancy rate of over 95%. Knightsbridge is a well sought after location in London, and the office solution and rate offered by the centre is unique in the area.”

Bulgaria : On Course For Golfing Greatness

Considered to be one of the greatest emerging markets for worldwide property investors, Bulgaria is already a hotspot for skiing and sunbathing. Now, thanks to the massive pulling power of top quality golf courses, Bulgaria is on track to become a golfing phenomenon too. With global golf tourism worth over £10 billion, Bulgaria is bound to become a huge success – with a range of pursuits both on and off the course…


1. Big hitters, big names!

Bulgaria is fast becoming first choice for many UK holidaymakers taking summer or skiing holidays, and now it looks set to become a mini-paradise for golfers too, as developers invest heavily in building a number of prestigious signature golf courses in the country.

Soon, Bulgaria will be home to one of Europe’s top golf courses, in the form of Thracian Cliffs Golf and Spa Resort, which boasts an 18-hole Gary Player Signature golf course.

The course forms the core of the luxury mixed-use development and is located on 164-hectares of wild, scenic Black Sea coast terrain, spanning 4.5 kilometres of coastline and bestowing a truly exhilarating golfing experience with stunning sea views.

Being the first on site, Mr. Player had the privilege of situating the fairways along the edge of the land while the real estate had to take the back row overlooking the greens and the sea.

The Golf Clubhouse will offer extravagant golfer facilities, including restaurants, a Long Bar with fireplaces and terraces overlooking the 18th Green and the sea, a gym and indoor and outdoor swimming pools with stunning views.

Alongside Mr. Gary Player, several other big names are behind the boom in golf in Bulgaria – Ian Woosnam has designed three golf courses; Bankso golf course, the Ian Woosnam golf course and the Pirin Pine course and legend Jack Nicklaus is behind the Ibar Golf Club & Spa – his first project in southeast Europe.

2. The legendary nineteeth hole

Bulgaria’s all important Nineteeth Hole is buzzing – the capital Sofia boasts a bustling nightlife scene with numerous bars, clubs, live venues and “mehani” – traditional Bulgarian taverns. The restaurant scene in Sofia is also emerging as a culinary force within Eastern Europe.

You can enjoy a relaxing night out too – a pint of beer will only set you back around 50 pence!

3. A fair-weather destination – all year round!

Bulgaria boasts more than 2,500 hours of sunshine each year, with more than 300 during July and August alone. During the summer months, temperatures range from a balmy 23 to 30 degrees Celsius and you won’t have to edge slowly into the sea – the water will be warm and inviting.

The availability of reasonably priced direct flights to Bulgaria has made it easy for forward-thinking travellers to make the most of the country. Low-cost airlines fly 365 days a year to Sofia, Varna and Bourgas from many other European locations.

4. Royal and Ancient?

The game of golf may date back to the 12th Century, but you won’t be able to pass that off as the only bit of ‘history’ you enjoy in Bulgaria – not when there’s so much else on offer.

For thirteen centuries, the land of Orpheus and Spartacus has sparked Thracian treasures and burial tombs, magnificent frescos and ancient applied arts.

Along the coast lie the Aladzha rock monastery, the historic architecture of Nessebar and old Thracian Tombs. Bulgaria also boasts the most ancient copper mines in Europe, which date back to the 5th millennium BC and architecture from the late Bronze Age.

5. Feeling below par?

Pulled a muscle on the golf course or just feeling a little green? Soothe those aches away at one of the many thermal pools and spas dotted around the country, boasting mineral-rich waters with relaxation and healing benefits. The Chedi Spa at Thracian Cliffs would be the best place to recover your inner harmony.

The Chedi Hotel will comprise 60 suites and will have all of the facilities, amenities and services you would expect from a luxury boutique resort.

This Chedi hotel will manage The Chedi Suites, The Chedi Club Suites, The Chedi Residences and the extravagant Chedi Villas, each on its own secluded 2500 m² plot.

Once completed, Thracian Cliffs Golf and Spa Resort will be set apart from other resorts in Europe due to its architecture and interior design which will reflect contemporary Asian style.

Balli Real Estate Sees Return Of Activity In UK Property Market

Balli Real Estate has revealed that fluctuations in the world’s currency exchanges and the fall in the value of sterling caused by the global financial crisis have once again made the UK’s property market a lucrative proposition for investors.

Recent statistics have revealed a rise in market activity and increased levels of mortgage approvals market as buyers return to the market after months of inactivity. This increase in market sentiment is not restricted to the occupational market and has been mirrored with an increase of investment activity.

Balli Real Estate, the private property company, has witnessed an increase in levels of interest in the UK market from domestic and overseas buyers during the first quarter of the year, as a window of opportunity, which opened with the fall of the pound against the world’s major currencies, has been spotted by investors.

Vahid Alaghband, group chairman of Balli Group, observes that the fall in sterling earlier in the year made the UK an attractive proposition for overseas investors and comments: “The relative weakness of the pound against other currencies and the fluctuations of the exchange rates are proving to be very beneficial to buyers from overseas, looking for new opportunities thrown up by the turmoil being experienced by real estate markets around the world. With low prices and yields at up to 10%, property has become a good investment again. In particular the housing market in the UK, of which around 50% is underwritten with government money, and with supply at record low we expect the market steadily through to 2014. The return to the market of competitive mortgages will prove a further boost.”

Balli Real Estate suggests that the pound’s relative weakness on the world’s currency markets will make the UK particularly attractive to buyers from the USA, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates.

Alaghband continued: “The argument for an influx of overseas investment is compelling when you combine a 30% fall in the value of the pound with, in some cases, a similar fall in property values. This inward investment is helping to bring an increase in liquidity to the market, which will be an important factor in the recovery of the residential and commercial property markets in the UK.”

Balli Real Estate expects that established and mature markets will prove particularly attractive to foreign investors as the fundamentals of location, accessibility and communications will remain key drivers for occupiers and investors.

David Reid of Balli Real Estate said: “The old adage of ‘location, location, location’ holds good whether the market is good or bad and the established and proven locations of our towns and cities will continue to draw occupiers and purchasers.”

“This has been witnessed at ‘Latitude’ our 172 apartment development in central Birmingham a short distance from New Street train station and the Bullring. Sales in the third and fourth quarters of 2008 were negligible but we have seen a steady increase during the first quarter of 2009.

About Balli Real Estate:
Balli Real Estate is a leading multi-national real estate investment and development company operating in the UK, the Middle East and other lucrative markets. In the United Arab Emirates the company operates under the Peacock Ventures Ltd brand. The company focuses on four key activities: fund management, joint venture developments, direct developments and bulk purchase investment, and is involved in some of the most prestigious real estate projects in the world.

Bruntwood Announced That Recent Improvements To Its Website Have Proved A Success, As Office Space Enquiries See A Significant Boost Over The First Few Weeks Of Going Live

Bruntwood, commercial property company, has announced that recent improvements to its website have proved a success, as office space enquiries see a significant boost over the first few weeks of going live.

The changes to the site were completed following a desire by Bruntwood to improve their existing site in order to make it easier for customers to be able to search for office space, serviced offices, virtual offices and meeting rooms, as well as increasing the sites’ capability to showcase photos of the various office properties more prominently.

The redesign was undertaken by interactive design company magneticNorth (mN) and since its launch on the 30th of April Bruntwood has already seen increased office enquiries by 10% across the initial three weeks.

Simon Scott of Bruntwood said: “The new website is a one-stop shop all of our products. They are showcased in such a way that potential customers can quickly and easily locate an office that meets their exact requirements. With over 90 office buildings in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham and five different products, it was essential that each region and product had a representation on the site, as well as and easy to use search function.”

Lou Cordwell, managing director, Magnetic North, said: “Bruntwood had a desire to increase the conversion between visitors to the site and follow-up enquires. Our design team facilitated this by creating a simple search functionality which allows customers to easily browse the company’s varied range of office spaces. In addition, the enhanced focus on photography delivers real impact as it demonstrates the variation of premium office space they have within their portfolio.”

Bruntwood Has Announced The Completion Of Its £2m Development Of 1 Dale Street Offices, A Grade II Listed Office Building In The Heart Of Liverpool’s Traditional Commercial Quarter

Bruntwood, commercial office space provider, has announced the completion of its £2m development of 1 Dale Street offices, a grade II listed office building in the heart of Liverpool’s traditional commercial quarter.

1 Dale Street offices

The newly developed building has been carefully designed to offer a variety of high specification and cost effective Liverpool office space solutions from 950 to 23,750 sq ft, which would suit companies looking for office space right in the city centre for between 9 and 250 people.

The redeveloped Liverpool offices at 1 Dale Street combine contemporary finishes whilst maintaining the building’s original features, including sash windows, vaulted ceilings and iron columns. A new reception and entrance has now been added which opens out directly onto views of the Nelson monument in Exchange Flags, meaning office customers at the building are connected to one of Liverpool’s busiest commercial areas.

The central location means the offices are conveniently located only 15 minutes drive away from the M53 and 20 minutes from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. The location also offers easy access to the rail networks, with Moorfields and Liverpool Central stations both nearby.

Mark Worthington from CBRE, a retained agent at the building said: “1 Dale Street is a prime example of how the heritage of Liverpool’s buildings can be preserved whilst still bringing them up to a high quality standard of office space. 1 Dale Street provides some of the most individual office space in the city centre and because of this, we’ve already had some strong interest in the offices at the building.”

1 Dale St is Bruntwood’s 11th building in Liverpool and takes its portfolio to 870,000 sq ft. Bruntwood sales surveyor, Colin Forshaw said: “Completing the offices at 1 Dale Street means that not only are we bringing a unique office product to Liverpool, but we can also provide our customers with more flexibility to move throughout our portfolio if their business needs change. Last year we helped over 50 customers cost efficiently up or downsize their office space in Liverpool, within the terms of their lease.”

Bruntwood Confirms That It Is Progressing Well With Its £7m Redevelopment Of The McLaren Office Building In Birmingham’s City Centre

Bruntwood, commercial property company, has announced that it is progressing well with its £7m redevelopment of the McLaren office building in Birmingham’s city centre, and confirmed the scheduled October completion date.

McLaren office building in Birmingham's city centre

Since purchasing the 115,000 sq ft Birmingham office property in April 2008, Bruntwood has successfully refurbished seven office floors and delivered a brand new reception area.

Bruntwood sales surveyor Rob Valentine commented, “We’re delighted with progress so far and our customers are pleased with the improvements we’ve made with the office space in Birmingham. The new reception is a complete transformation. It’s light, bright and spacious and by the end of May we will have installed the new bridge link that will connect McLaren’s entrance with Priory Queensway. This is an important milestone for us and makes access to the office building much more user friendly.”

Having delivered the new reception and a selection of refurbished floors, Bruntwood’s work at the office building in Birmingham city centre is now focused on improving its external appearance. The works, scheduled to be complete by October, will include the installation of brand new spandrel panels, window film and signage, as well as complete gable cleaning, which will give the office building the look of a new build property.

This work has contributed to the offices at McLaren being occupied by customers including Birmingham City Council, Scott Wilson and American Express. The remaining office space is available to let f r o m  300 to 60,000 sq ft, which is large enough to accommodate companies wishing to house f r o m 3 to over 600 staff.

Rob Valentine said, “With experience of very similar office schemes in Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds, we’re confident our work will mean McLaren will continue to prove very popular. Not only this, our competitive rents and flexible leases will mean that occupiers looking to relocate in Birmingham will have access to exceptionally high specification, yet cost-effective office space. Because a lease is with Bruntwood and not the building, it also gives customers the ability to up and downsize throughout our 90 building office portfolio, as and when their business needs change, without penalty.”

Bruntwood are now in talks with a variety of parties regarding the remaining office space at the building, with two companies showing significant interest in two of the 5,500 sq ft floors.

Bruntwood’s Leeds Office Development Proves Popular

Bruntwood, North of England commercial property firm, has announced the letting of an 8,300 sq ft office at 14 King Street, in Leeds’ city centre. Having recently benefited from an extensive £2.3m refurbishment, Bruntwood’s 37,000 sq ft, grade A, office space development will become home to Gatenby Sanderson and Charles Stanley & Co, who are taking 6,500 and 1,800 sq ft respectively.

Bruntwood’s head of sales and development for the offices in Leeds, Craig Burrow, said, “These deals are a great start for us at 14 King Street and we’re delighted to welcome these companies to the Bruntwood portfolio. The building’s already proving popular and with high specification, air conditioned and open plan office space for up to 6,700 sq ft available on flexible and competitive terms, we’re expecting the interest to remain strong. The flexibility of the building also allows us to create offices in Leeds from as little as 355 sq ft, meaning we can provide cost effective office space for businesses looking to accommodate anywhere from three to over 300 people.”

Both Gatenby Sanderson and Charles Stanley & Co’s leases will be with Bruntwood and not the building itself, meaning they both have the opportunity to up and down size throughout Bruntwood’s 90 building office portfolio, as their business requirements change. This ability to expand and contract customers is a key part of Bruntwood’s service oriented approach and something 50 Bruntwood customers have taken advantage of in the past 12 months.

Craig Burrow, said, “Every Bruntwood customer benefits from lease flexibility that’s difficult to find elsewhere. When you combine this with the quality of accommodation and levels of customer service on offer, 14 King Street provides exceptional value for money for those businesses wishing to locate their offices in Leeds’ traditional commercial core.”

14 King Street is Bruntwood’s fourth office in Leeds’ city centre which takes the Leeds offices portfolio to 275,000 sq ft. The other 3 buildings are 99% let, with the exception of the serviced office space and meeting room facilities, all of which are available to hire on an on-going basis at its Westone development on Wellington Street.

Bruntwood Completes Office Space Development At St Hughs In Bootle

Bruntwood, commercial property firm, has announced the completion of the development of St Hugh’s, the company’s first office development in Bootle, Liverpool. The building has undergone an extensive £3.6m transformation both externally and internally, which includes a new reception and some of the 

highest quality office space in Liverpool. The development at St Hugh’s is a 48,000 sq ft, six storey building located on Stanley Road in Bootle town centre.

Colin Forshaw, Bruntwood’s head of sales in Liverpool said, “The quality of the offices at St Hugh’s rivals many city centre alternatives but also offers greater value for money. The building has been designed to cater for businesses with between 1 and 500 people, so will accommodate a wide variety of office space requirements.”

Bruntwood currently has over 1,000 customers and holds a long term promise to respond to any changes in their property needs. The addition of St Hugh’s presents Bruntwood customers with a greater choice should they wish to up or downsize their requirements for office space in Liverpool at any time in the future.

Colin said, “We are committed to investing in Liverpool as a whole, and not just the city centre, so we have no reservations about investing a total of £4.25m in Bootle.”

Bruntwood sales director, Andrew Butterworth, commented, “Completing St Hugh’s means we can offer our Liverpool customers a greater variety in product and price along with greater flexibility to move around our portfolio as they require. Last year we helped 50 customers to expand and contract seamlessly and cost efficiently within the terms of their lease, showing the dedication we have for our customers’ business prosperity.”

All of Bruntwood’s office buildings have the added benefit of an on-site customer service team, who deliver a level of service more typically associated with a 5 star hotel. Bruntwood believes that the close relationships that its service teams have with the customers is one of the main reasons Bruntwood’s customer retention rate is 3 times higher than the national average.
