Downing continues lettings success
Property group Downing has secured a spate of new lettings across its Liverpool portfolio.
Buy Local Savers Limited, which offers e-marketing services to businesses, has taken space in Federation House on Hope Street. The move follows the company’s expansion into Merseyside from established bases in Chester and Wrexham.
Additionally, construction cost consultancy Evoke Solutions UK Limited and property consultants Actua Limited have both moved into suites at 1 Old Hall Street.
Robin Ellis, senior agency surveyor at Downing, said: “There’s a healthy flow of enquiries in our Flexi-Offices and we are pleased to be able to help smaller companies establish themselves in a prestigious, cost-effective city centre base. These businesses are reaping the benefits of offices in quality building, managed by Downing’s hands-on team.”
“The interest we have had since launching the Flexi-Offices last year shows that there is a great appetite for the type of office suite Downing provides – affordable yet high quality spaces in centrally-located buildings.”
Stuart St V Fitzgerald, director at Buy Local Savers, said: “We are delighted to have a fantastic flexi-office arrangement with Downing with possibly the best views available, right at the heart of our home city. We expect our new brand, Buy Liverpool Savers, to firmly establish us as the UK’s preferred marketing solution for business. Buy Liverpool Savers will enable us to connect the local business community with local people – enabling both to get better value for what they want through cost-effective marketing.”
Downing, Liverpool’s largest private commercial landlord, has created Flexi-Offices to fill the gap between fully serviced offices and the traditional leasing of a suite. Flexi-Offices are available for one person upwards for one month upwards, with monthly rents that are inclusive, and a standard short form lease that makes potentially an expensive and lengthy legal process unnecessary.
Ian Robinson, director at Evoke Solutions UK, said: “We are pleased to have moved to our new Flexi-Office as it allows the company to have a city centre base and be better-connected with our clients. Downing was helpful from the beginning in getting the perfect suite for us and our new space at 1 Old Hall Street will assist in growing our Liverpool-presence.”
Flexi-Offices will also be available at Downing’s other properties including Federation House on Hope Street and Victoria House. For more information please visit www.downing.com.
