Architects move into new Jewellery Quarter premises

A firm of architects is moving into newly-built offices in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

Pinnegar Hayward Design is moving from nearby Powell Street into a 5,047 sq ft space on the second floor of The Media Works on Carver Street.

Edward Siddall-Jones, managing director at Siddall Jones, said: “This is a large letting for the Jewellery Quarter market which is somewhat constrained by the historic aesthetic of the buildings.

“We are seeing an increase in demand for larger floor plates within the area but very few building are able to offer the opportunity for tenants to take 5,000 ft2 plus. We are thrilled to welcome PHD to Media Works and build on our reputation for being the most active commercial agent in the quarter.

“This is another example of the current trend of tenants seeking a flight to quality and taking on more sustainable buildings.”

Siddall Jones arranged the deal for landlord Jones and Palmer on a 10-year lease for a rent of £60,500 a year, with a mutual break option after the third and sixth years.

Hawkins Hatton Corporate Lawyers of Dudley advised the landlord on the deal, with Higgs of Brierley Hill acting for Pinnegar Hayward Design.
