Brindleyplace secures commercial property agency as new tenant

Harris Lamb is moving its Birmingham office from Edgbaston to Brindleyplace, as it looks to grow its footprint in the city.

The independently owned, Midlands-based commercial property agency is taking 5,391 sq ft of space on the fourth floor of 4 Brindleyplace, providing staff with a sustainable, modern and flexible commercial space.

TASK has been appointed to complete a Cat A fit-out.

Harris Lamb joins large office occupiers like Deutsche Bank, Deloitte, Avison Young, Unity Trust Bank and X&Y. In total, there’s more than 1.1 million sq ft of commercial space across the estate.

Director of Harris Lamb, Charles D’Auncey, said: “Brindleyplace makes complete sense for us. From a business point of view, it affords us everything we need and more in a Grade A office building. Our space is undergoing an extensive refurbishment, including a new VRF heating and cooling system and LED lighting, which is on target to achieve an EPC A rating.

“Outside the building itself, our staff are set to benefit from all of the estate’s amenities right on the doorstep, including an established and growing programme of health, wellness and wellbeing activities (such as yoga and massages) as well as estate-wide events like the film festival and regular markets.”

Property investor Praxis alongside private credit specialist investment firm Veld Capital, purchased the 14.9-acre development from HSBC Alternative Investments in September.

Matt Long, asset manager at Praxis, said: “Our continued commitment to refurbishing and repositioning this iconic estate is being recognised not only city-wide, but further afield as companies choose to make us their home.

“TASK has already been appointed to deliver the CAT A refurbishment of the workspace Harris Lamb is set to move into, and we can’t wait for the firm and its people to join us here at Brindleyplace.”
