The Nottingham area is beginning to become a destination for businesses looking to establish regional headquarters and hubs, with several new developments that include provision for grade A office space beginning to emerge.
Sam Spencer, associate at Bruton Knowles said: “The lack of available high quality office space has at times hampered Nottingham’s pulling power when it comes to drawing in major national and international businesses. However, there has recently been an uptick as businesses begin to look at the wider Nottingham area and the speculative builds that are going on.
“Demand is beginning to emerge for grade A office space in the areas surrounding the city as companies start to take advantage of the ever-improving transport links, with the expanded tram network, improved road access to the south of the city and the potential for an HS2 hub to be built at Toton.”
Within Nottingham itself, sites such as the Boots Island redevelopment are incorporating grade A office space in their plans as the city looks to provide an attractive location for businesses looking for regional or national bases.
Sam added: “With a good-sized graduate population and ongoing investment in transport and technological infrastructure, Nottingham is an attractive city in which to base a business. If we could persuade Government to electrify the Midland Mainline, we would have icing on the cake”.
