NG Banks on Market Knowledge to Seal Nottingham Office Relocation for Handelsbanken
7th March 2017
NG Chartered Surveyors has sealed a deal to enable an international banking group to upgrade its office space in the heart of Nottingham’s professional services sector. Richard Sutton at NG has acquired the ground floor of 22a the Ropewalk for Handelsbanken.
NG and Handelsbanken have enjoyed a strong relationship over many years. Handelsbanken had come to the end of its lease in City Gate East so the Bank took the decision to move to an office suite that is the former office of UHY Hacker Young. Richard said:
“The 2,250 sq fit office suite has terrific views over The Park and out towards the airport and is in one of the most sought after positions in the city’s professional quarter.”
Richard completed the search and acquisition on behalf of the bank and in doing the deal ticked all the boxes for the its future plans. The office suite was fully refurbished and Handelsbanken has completed its relocation.
Richard added: “This deal goes to show the value of building long-term relationships with occupiers. We were also able to use our market knowledge of available high-quality office space in Nottingham city centre to complete a deal that has satisfied all parties involved.”
Larick Walker at Handelsbanken said:
“Following recent growth and recruitment, we felt it was a good time to move to a significantly larger office, further demonstrating our long-term commitment to the region”.
“Our new Nottingham offices are a much better reflection of the Foresight brand. Nottingham is a key region for Foresight and 22A The Ropewalk sits in proud company against our other offices in The Shard – London, King Street – Manchester, Rome and San Francisco.
“22A The Ropewalk is in a great location for proximity to the corporate community that we work closely with. The move is a statement of intent that reflects further growth aspirations in Nottingham and the broader Midlands.
“The team at NG could not have been more helpful. They were professional, courteous and did all that they could to ensure we moved into our chosen property as quickly as possible. I would recommend NG very highly.”
Geo Hallam acted for the landlord on the deal.
