Adam Jackson, associate director of the office agency at commercial agent Lambert Smith Hampton, acted on behalf of the landlord Petros.

We are witnessing increased letting activity from the telecommunications, media and technology sector and the growth of Travellers Tales is a great success story for the region.”

Richard Heap, Facilities Manager for Traveller’s Tales, added: “1 Kings Close is not only well located in the heart of Wilmslow but also provides our staff with highly flexible and efficient workspace.”

Located opposite Birchwood Park in Warrington, Rutherford House is a 58,000 sq ft office building arranged over two wings.

Rob Prescott of DTZ’s Office agency team said: “Birchwood continues to attract a diverse range of companies keen to take advantage of its strong transport links and proximity to the motorway network. The combination of high quality office space and a pleasant campus style environment make for a compelling attraction for occupiers.”

CORINTHIAN Tax has signed up to lease offices at Fountain House in Manchester city centre.

The chartered accountants and chartered tax advisers have relocated from Regus’ serviced offices on King Street to take 1,082 sq ft of space on the third floor on a six-year lease. 

Located on the corner of Fountain Street and Booth Street, the 12,700 sq ft is also home to insolvency practitioners, Unity Corporation. The latest deal means there is just over 9,000 sq ft remaining in suites available from 944 sq ft to 2,162 sq ft per floor.

Brian Wood of Corinthian Tax said: “When we were looking to move, staying in the city’s primary core was our first priority. Fountain House offered us a fitted suite and we were impressed with the quality of refurbishment undertaken by the building owner. This move gives our business room to expand, and is on the doorstep of both our city centre clients and the city’s professional community, with whom we work closely.”

Conrad O’Neill of Canning O’Neill represented the landlord, the British Steel Pension Fund (BSPF). Corinthian Tax was advised by Tenant Advisory Group.
