Work has completed on a £1.5m plus renovation project to deliver boutique Grade A office accommodation at 21 Bennetts Hill in Birmingham.

Property company Hortons’ Estate has refurbished and upgraded the upper six floors of the art deco style building.

Suites are available from 658 sq ft to 2,810 sq ft.

Richard Walker of Hortons’ said: “Our aim was to deliver modern office suites on flexible and competitive terms that would suit small businesses looking for a city centre base.

“This has been a design-led refurbishment, completed to a high standard, that blends the character and heritage of the building with the specification of contemporary office accommodation. 21 Bennetts Hill is an attractive period building which Hortons’ has owned since 1985, our first occupier has been secured and we look forward to welcoming further tenants in the coming months.”

Hortons’ has also let the ground floor retail space at 20 Bennetts Hill to virtual reality arcade and bar operator Otherworld. A 15-year lease has been agreed on 4,100 sq ft over the ground floor and basement.

This is Otherworld’s third location and the operator is due to open in April 2022.

The joint agents for 21 Bennetts Hill are Alex Tross of Centrick and Charles Warrack of Johnson Fellows.
