Property consultancy relocates to prominent Chester site

Knight's Court

Acting on behalf of Panacea Properties, joint property agents Legat Owen and CBRE have secured a 6,500 sq ft letting at Knight’s Court in Chester to the Solomon Group.

The multi-disciplinary property consultancy has relocated from 3,000 sq ft at The Quadrant on Chester West Employment Park to take the second floor of the three-storey building on a five-year lease.

Located on Weaver Street, Knight’s Court provides 20,000 sq ft of modern, open-plan office accommodation.

The building has been fully refurbished and offers secure car parking to the rear. This deal means 13,500 sq ft remains available across the first and ground floors.

Will Sadler, director at Legat Owen, which is both letting and managing agent for the building, said: “Knight’s Court is located in a highly prominent position offering extensive views across the racecourse. The building is a stone’s throw from all of the city’s amenities, a factor which has proved to be key in the occupier’s decision to move.”

Neil Patten, director at Panacea Properties, said: “Knight’s Court has been in our portfolio since it was built in 2000 and occupied by Lloyds Banking Group on a long-term lease.

“Following their departure, we took the decision to fully refurbish the property and are pleased to have subsequently secured Solomon Group, a thriving, Chester-based business in the building.”

Managing Director of Solomon Group, Andrew Ward, said: “Our expansion into larger offices is just one part of the growth strategy the Solomon Group companies are undertaking.

“As one of the few organisations that has expanded both staff and offering in 2020, we are in a stronger position than ever to fulfil our potential.

“The Knight’s Court offices will enable us to continue thriving whilst remaining in Chester – a city that has treated us well over the past decade.

“We designed the interior of Knight’s Court to give our staff an excellent working environment and look forward to many happy years in the building.”
