COMMERCIAL property adviser CB Richard Ellis North West has let 8,000 sq ft on behalf of the Benmore Group to language school A2Z English in Manchester.

The refurbished property, 75 Mosley Street, has been let on a 5-year lease.

The building is now fully occupied following a series of lettings over the past 12 months to companies including Remploy and Scanlans.

Nick Nelson, surveyor in the Office Agency team at CBRE North West, said: “Since our instruction a year ago alongside P3 Property Consultants, we have successfully completed three new lettings totalling 16,500 sq ft to achieve a fully let building for our client, the Benmore Group.

“This is evidence that there remains healthy demand for competitively priced, good quality refurbished office accommodation in buildings that offer prime location and flexible lease terms.”

David Burrows, chief executive of Benmore Group, added: “The full occupation of this property is a reflection of the quality of the design and specification and demonstrates that demand exists for the right kinds of property so long as developers ensure their projects are commercially viable and realistic.”

CB Richard Ellis acted on behalf of landlord Benmore Group. P3 Property Consultants is the joint agent.
