Catella APAM (“APAM”), the specialist UK & Ireland real estate asset manager, has successfully let 4,182 sq ft to Santander on the 6th Floor of 1 Colmore Row in the heart of Birmingham’s CBD.
APAM purchased One Colmore Row on behalf of Britannia Invest A/S in 2018 and since delivered a rolling refurbishment to improve the quality of office accommodation throughout the building, overhauling the reception to improve the sense of arrival and installing best in class shower, changing and bicycle storage facilities. APAM is continuing to invest in the building through the delivery of further speculatively fitted office accommodation.
Prominently located at the top of Colmore Row in the heart of Birmingham’s Colmore Business District, One Colmore Row is surrounded by established occupiers within the professional and financial services sectors.
Andrew Day, Senior Asset Manager at APAM commented: ‘We worked together with Santander over several months to design, procure and now deliver a bespoke turnkey solution for their new Birmingham office. APAM has the in-house capabilities to create fully fitted solutions for occupiers so they can concentrate on their day-to-day operations whilst we deliver good quality, fully fitted spaces for their future occupational requirements’.
‘One Colmore Row is perfectly located for occupiers to benefit from the vast array of amenities that Birmingham city centre has to offer as well as the Second City’s unrivalled transport connections with Snowhill train station located adjacent to One Colmore Row and the Midland Metro station located a short walk away on Bull Street.’
Will Higgins MRICS, Senior Surveyor at Knight Frank commented: ‘The high calibre of tenant that APAM continue to attract to One Colmore Row is testament to the quality of product that they are delivering at the building. We continue to see good demand from occupiers looking to benefit from landlord providing turnkey solutions in best in class refurbished buildings.’
Knight Frank advised APAM and Colliers advised Santander.
