Brace of lettings take Eden Point to full occupancy
Two lettings, totalling 8,954 sq ft, mean Eden Point is now fully let.
Bridge Properties reached 100% occupancy following the recent completion of the final phase of refurbishment works at the property on the A34.
Capelli Sports has taken 5,608 sq ft on a 10-year lease, while footwear company, Skechers, will relocate from Wilmslow, where it was based for the past 10 years, to a newly-refurbished suite extending to 3,954 sq ft on the second floor.
Skechers has also signed a 10-year lease and will use the space predominantly as an office as well as a showroom to showcase its new product lines.
Tristan Batt, director of sales at Cappelli Sports said: “We were looking for a space that would have some of the DNA of our Manhattan showroom, that would deliver a visual impact when you come to visit us. Secondly, we wanted somewhere that people would want to come to work and the facilities are great in this building.”
The 32,000 sq ft high quality office scheme, which occupies a prominent position on the A34 between Wilmslow and the M60 orbital motorway, has attracted a number of other tenants over the past 12 months including SKN Spa, Symphony Textiles, Cutts and Co, Content Chemistry, Overtec and AMG Financial.
The announcement comes after Bridge Properties secured Soletanché Freyssinet IT UK as its first tenant at Element, a 40,000 sq ft office building in Birchwood, which has undergone a similar extensive investment and refurbishment programme to Eden Point.
The international soil, structural and nuclear engineering company, took 3,362 sq ft on a five-year lease.
James Dickinson, director at Canning O’Neill, joint agents for the scheme with Williams Sillitoe, said: “From sports and financial to medical and technology, Eden Point has successfully attracted a myriad of highly successful organisations who see the value in being based here.”
Paul McCann, of Bridge Properties, said: “We are hugely proud to have fully let Eden Point, we acquired the building at the end of 2017 and set about creating a destination where businesses could flourish in attractive well-designed office space which we felt was lacking outside of the city centre.
“On the back of this success we have invested heavily in a new exciting development called Element in Birchwood and will be launching this market-leading product in the following weeks.”
