Excel Therapy has taken the lease on a landmark office building in the heart of Nottingham’s Lace Market in a deal completed by Landa Associates and FHP Property Consultants.

Sunny Landa FRICS, director of Landa Associates, acted on behalf of Excel Therapy founder Scott Poundall to secure a new home for the sports and performance therapy business at 48-50 St Mary’s Gate.

FHP’s Amy Howard acted for landlord Nigel Rhodes of D L Rhodes & Son.

Poundall established Excel Therapy in early 2019. The specialist osteopath has worked with members of the Nottingham Forest first team squad and the Nottingham Panthers, where he worked for 14 years.

Excel Therapy will use the space to deliver a wide range of therapeutic services including rehab, osteopathy and sports massage as well as high-level specialist training for aspiring and established therapists.

The site has something of a storied history, having once been occupied by Bombardier, who took a lease on the premises in 2008 in another deal completed by Sunny Landa. The property has also belonged to the well-known Strauss family in times past.

Sunny Landa said: “I’m delighted to have acquired this distinguished property for a great client. Excel Therapy really is a one-of-a-kind business, great to work with, and I firmly believe Scott will do very well there.

“48-50 St Mary’s Gate has a fascinating history and it’s a property that’s very close to my heart, given I once let it to Bombardier. I used that deal as a case study for my APC qualification many years ago.”

Scott Poundall said: “I’d like to thank Sunny for securing such fantastic premises for the business. His work on this deal was meticulous and his expertise was invaluable at every stage of the process. We will be using our new home to offer an expanded range of services and specialist training.’’

Amy Howard said: “It was a pleasure to work with Sunny and Scott on this deal. This is one of the most prestigious properties in an area brimming with prime assets. The building really is special – you can almost feel the history of the place. Excel Therapy is exactly the kind of tenant my client was looking for. They will bring something fresh and exciting to this historic part of Nottingham. I wish them all the best in their new home.”

Nigel Rhodes added: “Excel Therapy is already one of the most dynamic businesses in Nottingham and I am delighted to welcome Scott and the team to the Lace Market. Hats off to Amy and Sunny for their sterling work in getting the deal over the line. As a landlord, it’s vital to surround yourself with advisors who know the market inside out, and I’m very pleased to say the advice I received on this occasion was second to none.”
