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.”

MLK Insurance Announces Renters Insurance Website

MLK Insurance, recognizing the growing need for New York renters to insure their belongings, has announced the launch of NY-RENTERSINSURANCE.COM, a site dedicated solely to the renters insurance maket in New York. Many residents in New York are under the impression that their personal property is covered by their landlord in the event of a fire or theft.

Consequently, by not carrying the necessary coverage, there has been a huge number of New York renters left out in the cold when it comes to replacing their damaged or stolen contents. These contents can add up to significant amounts when you factor in the cost of replacing major items like tvs, computers, stereo equipment and furnishings. Increased burglaries in the current economic environment coupled with the coming holiday season which historically has triggered an increase in crimes against personal property, make the next few months a key time to secure the proper coverage. With that in mind, NY-RENTERSINSURANCE.COM was launched to have a quick and easy portal in which consumers can get a quote on the coverage they need. In most cases, same day coverage is available and low deposits of as little as $10 are needed to secure coverage.

Policies start for as little as $55 year for basic coverage which includes $100,000 liability coverage-in case you are sued by someone accidentally injured in your apartment. In addition, the policy pays for any additional living expenses you incur if you are forced out of your apartment while repairs are made. Policyholders have used this coverage for reimbursement on the cost of hotel rooms and eating out and it has prevented them from having to seek out a shelter.

Edinburgh-Based Ocean Serviced Apartments Responds To The Growing Number Of Business Clients By Providing Dedicated Corporate-Level Accommodation

Business travellers are switching to the value and comfort of serviced apartments to seal the deal. Edinburgh-based Ocean Serviced Apartments has responded to the growing number of business clients, looking for economy and luxury combined, by providing dedicated corporate-level accommodation.

Ocean Serviced Apartments

When the UK’s newest operator in the sector, Ocean Serviced Apartments, offered high-spec accommodation for corporate clients, they anticipated that many guests would also want to use their waterfront address to entertain too. “And why not?” asks Matthew Hansen one of Ocean’s Corporate Account managers. “If you’re working in Edinburgh for a limited time, be that a few days or a few months, there’s no needing go to the additional expense of a meeting place, when you can easily use one of our corporate-level apartments as a place to live, and as somewhere to hold an informal meeting”.

Certainly, Ocean Serviced Apartments offer an inspiring location. With views of the Edinburgh skyline and the waters of the Firth of Forth there are few locations that come close to this impressive new-build. “We’re on the edge of the city centre, rather than being out of town”, adds Matthew Hansen. “So we avoid all the usual problems, like parking and congestion, while still being close to all the city amenities”.

Ocean’s two-bedroomed Corporate Apartments all have complimentary wifi, and TV and radio so you can Wake Up To Money and doze off to the Financial World Tonight. They’re all furnished to a premium standard. With nightly rental available from £70, corporate guests have excellent flexibility and a great view of Edinburgh to impress clients.

Renters Take Responsibility with Renters Liability Insurance

As an apartment or condo renter, it’s your responsibility to take care of your guests. Part of that responsibility includes owning renters liability insurance to avoid falling into a financial hole if a guest were to get injured on your property. A recently published article on InsuranceAgents.com discusses the significance of renters liability insurance and how it’s become a necessity rather than a luxury to own.

“If you are renting a house, condo, or apartment and you haven’t looked into purchasing renters liability insurance then you might want to start,” the article, Get Covered With Renters Liability Insurance, suggests. “Renters liability insurance is one component of a larger renters policy. A standard renters insurance policy generally comes with contents coverage, liability coverage, and external living expense coverage. However, you should not consider a renters policy unless it has adequate renters liability insurance coverage.”

You should also not consider a policy if it excludes the following: coverage for damage or injury caused by you or your property in your home as well as outside of your home (not including auto accidents), coverage for medical costs and legal bills that could result from said damage or injury, and a substantial coverage limit of at least $500,000.

Silverdoor Portfolio Hits Almost 35,000 Apartments Available Worldwide

So far 2009 has proved to be a great year for SilverDoor, with the addition of even more new serviced apartments to its website.

Since Silverdoor changed its name in 2006, the Chiswick based company has seen a big expansion of its database of serviced apartments, allowing it to offer properties in over 170 locations globally. Now with the addition of a wide collection of new properties ranging from serviced apartments in Aberdeen through to serviced apartments in Prague, the number of apartments which are available has risen past the 34,000 mark to almost 35,000.

Possibly the jewel in the crown when it comes to the new additions, is the inclusion of several new Prague serviced apartments, including The Riverview Apartments and the Pachtuv Palace Apartments. Both sets of apartments are located in the centre of Prague, with The Riverview Apartments providing ideal for accommodation for budget-conscious travellers, and as its name suggests great views overlooking the Vitava River. On the other hand, The Pachtuv Palace Apartments offer luxury serviced accommodation in what was formally the Pachtuv Palace, a cultural and architectural landmark that is built around a stunning eighteenth century courtyard.

“The standard of serviced apartments in Prague is very high. Many are particularly spacious, with large windows and are architecturally interesting. We are pleased to increase the number of serviced apartments in Prague we offer as the number of business-related visits continues to rise there”, said Chris Gee, Sales Director at SilverDoor.

With the quality of apartments continuing to rise and SilverDoor now representing almost thirty five thousand apartments worldwide, it looks like SilverDoor is going from strength to strength.

The Heat Wave Hitting The UK This Summer Increased The Demand For Serviced Apartments With Some Form Of Outdoor Space

SilverDoor has revealed that, with temperatures soaring in London and the South East this summer, there has been an increased demand f r o m customers for serviced apartments with some form of outdoor space, be it a balcony, a terrace or a communal garden.

“In Central London where the temperature has been known to soar as high as 33 Celsius, the advantage of outside space is very important,” said Marnie Delaney-Parker, Head of PR and Marketing at SilverDoor. “No one wants to be inside when the British weather is as wonderful as it has been recently and a terrace or a balcony is perfect and makes a serviced apartment seem a much better option than a hotel room with no outside space.”

Key areas for Silverdoor which have seen increased attention are the towns of Newbury and Croydon. Serviced apartments in Newbury have always been a popular choice and the Library Apartments building features a communal roof garden as well as a comfortable lounge area with a dining table and chairs for entertaining or working at, along with high specification AV equipment and television with Sky satellite channels. The Maresfield Apartment, which is a serviced apartment in Croydon, has also received a great deal of increased interest. Located within a residential area only ten minutes walk f r o m East Croydon mainline station, the apartment features one double bedroom, a separate bathroom and an open plan kitchen/lounge area that leads onto a patio and communal lawns.

While the recent heat wave, which has seen night-time temperatures remaining above 18 Celsius in some areas leading the Met Office to raise its heat wave alert, has been bad news for many people across the country as they try to sleep, it has provided a welcome boon for Silverdoor.

SilverDoor Has Spoken Out On The MPs’ Second Home Scandal With Recommendations For Alternative Accommodation

Rather than take on a second home in the capital, MP’s could take a serviced apartment and SilverDoor has taken on some new serviced apartments in London. West End Quay apartments are located in Paddington and are part of the Paddington Waterside development which is s e t around the Grand Union Canal. The location offers excellent access to the City and the West End f r o m Edgware Road Underground stations while the Heathrow Express operates f r o m nearby Paddington Station every 15 minutes. The modern and stylish studio, one and two bedroom apartments provide spacious living areas and quality furnishings and feature separate dining, living and sleeping areas. There is also a 24 hour concierge service and a courtyard seating area.

Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh have also been in the spotlight recently. Andrew Mitchell, Birmingham MP, claimed for furniture for his second home in Birmingham yet had the furniture delivered to his London home – something that could have been avoided if he had used a serviced apartment in Birmingham. The Arc Apartments are a new addition to SilverDoor’s serviced apartments in Birmingham. Located in the centre of the city, each open-plan one or two bedroom apartments is furnished to a high standard and features the use of a concierge service as well as complimentary broadband and on-site parking. “The Arc Apartments are in a perfect location for someone wanting to stay in Birmingham, whether it be for a short time or an extended stay” said Marnie Delaney-Parker, head of PR and marketing at SilverDoor.

In Manchester, SilverDoor has numerous serviced options and The Edge apartments are located in one of Manchester’s most significant residential developments situated on a key riverside location in the city. The apartments offer a stylish spacious lounge/dining area and a fully equipped kitchen with a range of integrated modern appliances. Guests will benefit f r o m free internet use and a welcome pack on arrival as well as on-site parking. These serviced apartments in Manchester complement the rest of the SilverDoor portfolio.

Clive Betts, Labour MP for Sheffield claimed over £6000 for furnishings of his second home, again a cost that could have been avoided, had he used a serviced apartment.

Recently added to the Edinburgh portfolio is Grove Executive. Opened earlier this year, the development includes a choice of studios, one and two bedroom apartments and two bedroom penthouses. These modern serviced apartments in Edinburgh city centre are located within the West End district and are a short walk f r o m Princes Street, Edinburgh Castle and the mainline train station. John Barrett, Liberal Democrat MP for Edinburgh West claimed £1138 per month mortgage interest on a second home in a building in London where SilverDoor represent serviced apartments.

SilverDoor has added the first ever purpose built development of Cardiff serviced apartments to strengthen its portfolio of UK serviced apartments and has also added more serviced apartments in Reading and more serviced apartments in Brighton.

Crown Apartments in Reading offer one and two bedroom accommodation and are just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre and the rail station. A great selection of shops, restaurants and bars can be found in the town centre along Broad Street and within the Oracle Shopping Centre. These apartments are modern and luxuriously furnished and well suited for business travellers and are in a convenient position for all of Reading’s blue chip companies.

Also added last year to the SilverDoor database is Loft Apartments in Brighton. These apartments are a selection of luxuriously furnished one and two bedroom apartments and are conveniently located to enjoy the vibrant nightlife, shopping and café culture of Brighton. Each apartment has been decorated in a modern style and includes a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable living area and a separate bathroom with a bath and shower. Some of the apartments also have access to a private rooftop terrace with sea views.

“These locations are very popular for SilverDoor and the serviced apartment market and we’re delighted that we now have some more options to offer,” said Chris Gee, sales director at SilverDoor, “The provider we use in these locations also has serviced apartments in Glasgow and Bristol, again very popular locations for us.”

A new addition, opened earlier this year is Meridian Apartments in Cardiff. These serviced apartments provide modern serviced accommodation and are housed within a purpose built development with a choice of studios, one and two bedroom apartments. All of the apartments are tastefully furnished and come complete with state-of-the-art kitchen facilities, comfortable living areas and luxurious bedrooms with king size beds and modern bathrooms. The development also has a reception desk manned throughout office hours.

“We are finding that more and more companies are opting for serviced apartments over hotels so availability can be limited so to get a provider to invest into key locations and with high quality accommodation is just perfect,” said Marnie Delaney-Parker, head of PR and marketing at SilverDoor.

SilverDoor offers serviced apartments in more than 160 locations globally and offers a range of accommodation to suit all budgets.

SilverDoor Increases Its Portfolio With Larger Apartments Due To Client Demand

Generally the trend in serviced apartments has been either one or two bedroom apartments and the larger apartments have been for training groups or perhaps relocation with a family, but SilverDoor has seen a recent growth in the need for larger apartments of three and four bedrooms.

“Companies can reduce accommodation costs by getting colleagues to share a serviced apartment rather than booking three separate hotel rooms,” said Marnie Delaney-Parker, head of PR and marketing at SilverDoor, “It’s not just the accommodation costs that are reduced but also all additional costs such as costly restaurant bills and laundry bills. All serviced apartments feature facilities to allow guests to cook for themselves and to do laundry. We estimate that for a longer stay, guests can save around 30% on additional costs compared to staying in a hotel.”

SilverDoor has seen significant growth in Scotland and offers some larger serviced apartments in Glasgow. Central Apartments are housed in a refurbished Victorian townhouse and offer modern furnished accommodation in a fantastic city centre location. As well as offering three bedroom apartments, the property also has one and two bedroom options. All apartments are stylishly decorated and comfortably furnished while still retaining many original features.

Serviced apartments in Belfast have also seen a growing trend recently in larger apartments. Willowbank apartments in South Belfast offer two and three bedroom accommodation and have full kitchen facilities, a separate lounge area and a garden area, too. The apartments are a ten-minute drive from the airport as well as a short taxi ride from the city centre.

It’s not just in the UK that SilverDoor has spotted a trend, with Amsterdam serviced apartments becoming larger to meet demand of clients wanting to share and save costs. Dutch Masters Apartments located within the city centre form part of an exclusive development within the historical district.

The development is situated on the Keizersgracht canal, and there are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and transport connections nearby. Each apartment is themed on a famous Dutch artist to offer guests a variety of truly unique apartments.

The development offers one, two and three bedroom apartments, all comfortably furnished. Some apartments have a roof terrace, while some have access to the tranquil gardens at the back of the property and others have views of the canal.

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.”

Silverdoor Has Announced That It Has Added To Its Extensive Portfolio Of Accommodation By Introducing New Apartments In Cardiff And London

Meridian Apartments are a range of studios, one and two bed serviced apartments in Cardiff. They opened in February 2009 and are located in Cardiff city centre, near to the Millennium Stadium and close to both Cardiff Central and Cardiff Queen Street rail stations. The apartments are housed within a purpose built building and boast luxurious bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas and kitchens.

Since 2005 when Cardiff celebrated its centenary as a city and 50 years as capital of Wales, “Cardiff serviced apartments are becoming more and more popular due to the regeneration of the bay area and key parts of the city centre,” said Chris Gee, Sales Director at SilverDoor.

Another property recently added to the SilverDoor portfolio is Templeton Place in London, which is housed within a newly completed residential development in Earls Court. The apartments are conveniently located for Earls Court Exhibition Centre and the underground station, providing easy links for other parts of London. These serviced apartments in London offer a spacious, contemporary living area, with fully equipped kitchen and integrated appliances.

“This part of London is such a popular location. Trying to accommodate people who need to be near this area has been a challenge as we have not had enough serviced apartments here before. There are many apartment buildings in the surrounding areas but there weren’t enough in Earls Court and many have restrictions on lengths of stays, some with minimum stays of ninety nights. One of the benefits of Templeton Place apartments is that they will offer shorter stays,” said Chris Gee. “We’re delighted that we can now offer something in this area and are confident it will become a huge success.”

Also new in London is Gloucester Place Apartments in Marylebone. It is housed within a newly converted Georgian townhouse located less than five minutes walk from Regents Park and Baker Street underground stations. All of the one bedroom apartments have air conditioning, a fully equipped kitchen with a range of integrated appliances and a comfortable lounge and dining area.

“Marylebone is a really popular area for serviced apartments in London and we get many requests, especially from overseas visitors who intend to stay for a while,” said Stuart Winstone, Head of Business Partnerships at SilverDoor. “The whole area has the feel of a small village to it and is so close to Regents Park offering the best of both worlds, yet is ten minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street and the West End.”

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.
