Our client OBI Property today announced 65,000 sq ft of work space has been let at the former ITV and Granada Studios since May last year to 20 different companies.  Businesses have moved into three buildings on the estate: HQ Building, Hello House and 88-100 Quay Street.

All the companies have moved into the space on flexible leases, the largest deals being Horwich Cohen Coghlan Solicitors and Shoosmiths Solicitors who have taken 16,500 sq ft each in HQ Building, and Claims Advisory has taken 15,980 sq ft in 88-100 Quay Street.

OBI Property is the sole leasing agent on behalf of Allied London.  Emma Powell, OBI Property said:  “The popularity of the space at ITV and Granada not only shows the vitality and demand for flexible work space and leases, but is a very positive sign for the future of the redevelopment of the area.  There is still space available, starting from 160 sq ft at sizes to suit any growing business.”

The Build consultancy at OBI Property has managed all the landlord works at Granada HQ and Hello House, including the transformation of the HQ reception and space by space managed the fit out works for new tenants.  All the landlord and fit out works were managed by OBI and completed in just 20 weeks and on budget.
