MANCHESTER-based land and property company HIMOR is celebrating a lettings hat-trick at Clarence House.

In three separate deals a total of 3,750 sq ft has been let, taking occupancy levels in the building to more than 70%.

Two of the deals were to companies moving into Manchester city centre.

Private equity company Primary Capital Partners has taken a first floor suite, the company’s first office in Manchester.

Investment director at Primary Capital, Iain Wolstenholme, said:  “The boutique feel of Clarence House set it apart from competing office space.

“The ambience of the building and that all-important first impression upon arrival is key to our business.

“Clarence House is ideally located in the heart of the city’s commercial district and will provide the perfect platform from which to launch the ‘Primary Capital’ business in Manchester.”

Ben Broughton, director at recruitment specialist Premier Londonm which has taken a suite on the third floor, said: “The building satisfied our principal
occupational and locational criteria, close to Albert Square and very well located for commerce, public transport and retail amenities.”

Property development company Glenbrook Property has meanwhile rented offices on the first floor.

Ian Sherry of Glenbrook said: “Glenbrook considered a number of buildings within the CBD and ultimately chose Clarence House based on location, quality of accommodation.”

Paul Codling of HIMOR said he believed the success was just reward for HIMOR’s strategy of offering a combination of flexibility and quality in character building.

 “This building has real personality which clearly is being recognised by occupiers,” he said.

Manchester office leasing specialists OBI Property and CBRE acted for HIMOR.
