A multi-million-pound refurbishment of One Colmore Row, a landmark office building, in central Birmingham has now been completed to improve facilities for workers and visitors.
The investment has created a new glazed entrance lobby and enlarged reception space, with touchdown workspace, grab and go coffee offer and informal meeting areas. New showers, changing facilities and secure bicycle storage have been added in the basement ensuring the occupiers now have an excellent wellbeing offer within the building.
In addition, the vacant sixth floor office has undergone an extensive refurbishment and now offers modern contemporary office accommodation benefiting from exposed ductwork and suspended LED light fittings, a reconfigured lift lobby and WCs.
Catella APAM (“APAM”), the asset manager for the landmark building, has appointed property consultancies Knight Frank and Cushman & Wakefield as joint agents at One Colmore Row.
Will Higgins of Knight Frank in Birmingham and letting agent on behalf of APAM said: “One Colmore Row is one of the most prominent office addresses in Birmingham’s Colmore Business District and this investment brings the building bang up to date. Only the sixth floor remains vacant and the stylish fitout there makes it an ideal choice for occupiers looking for modern accommodation at the very heart of the city.”
Alex Hardwick, senior asset manager at APAM, added: “One Colmore Row provides high-quality workspace in a fabulous location, overlooking Snow Hill Square, and our investment demonstrates APAM’s ongoing commitment to Birmingham.”
Colmore Row is traditionally Birmingham’s most prestigious address and the Colmore Row Business District is associated with some of the largest corporates in the world, such as HSBC, KPMG, Gowling WLG and Barclays.
