50,000 sq ft let at East West following major transformation

East West in Nottingham

Almost 50,000 sq ft of office space has been let at East West in Nottingham following a £4m redevelopment of the building.

Equifax has taken 19,045 sq ft across the entire 5th floor of the huge office development on Maid Marian Way, with CEG set to deliver a bespoke fit out on the company’s behalf.

Impero and Turner and Townsend have taken 3,345 sq ft and 4,260 sq ft respectively, while Worldwide Clinical Trials group has taken 10,500 sq ft of newly refurbished space at the scheme.

Faithful & Gould, Pick Everard and KPMG have all move into smaller offices in the 175,000 sq ft building.

The adjacent Toll House pub has been integrated into the development, providing a café bistro and business lounge. This first phase of redevelopment delivered by CEG also includes a new reception area to the east building, as well as glazing, lighting, heating and ventilation improvements and new cycling facilities, showers, drying room and lockers.

East West is one of the city’s most prominent office schemes, with existing tenants including Nottingham Trent University, Arup, JLL, Scape Group and RSM.

Alex Goode, investment manager at CEG, said: “East West has been transformed to respond to businesses wanting healthy, sustainable and productive space that will help to attract and retain the best talent.

“We are delighted to welcome seven new tenants and, although the building is so popular, we do have some suites from 1,900 to 9,000 sq ft available over the coming months, ready for bespoke fit out, the costs for which can be managed as part of the flexible rent package to reduce an occupier’s capital outlay.”

The development is being marketed by FHP on behalf of CEG.

Mark Tomlinson, director at FHP, said: “We continue to see strong demand for the very best quality office spaces with many occupiers now seeking to improve the quality of their office environments. Supply of good quality office space in Nottingham is low and East West stands alone in its ability to offer its Tenants a superb onsite business lounge café for informal meetings, hosting client events, staff breakout and workspaces. I’m delighted to say that we are due to bring forward more space within the building in 2023.”
