Orega has agreed a deal with global private equity firm, The Carlyle Group, to take 37,000 sq ft of space for new serviced offices in Manchester and Birmingham, giving it a presence in both the Midlands and North West for the first time.
Orega has taken 17,000 sq ft at 3 Piccadilly Place, a striking Grade ‘A’ office building in Manchester, which was developed by Argent. Orega Piccadilly sits within the 675,000 sq ft Piccadilly Place complex, a brand new mixed-use development comprising offices, retail, a hotel, serviced apartments and residential.
The agreement follows Orega’s recent 20,000 sq ft letting at The Colmore Plaza, The Carlyle Group’s landmark office building in central Birmingham.
Orega Birmingham will provide serviced offices on the mezzanine level and part of the ground floor with up to 244 workstations, a reception area with shared seating areas and flexible meeting rooms.
Paul Finch, joint managing director of Orega, said: "Both choices meet our desire to select highly distinctive and well-located office buildings for our new business centres and this deal gives us a pivotal position in two of the UK’s most important office locations."
"Three Piccadilly Place and Colmore Plaza are among the largest and best new commercial schemes in their respective cities. A combination of high build standards and excellent transport links should prove irresistible to occupiers seeking flexible space or virtual offices and meeting rooms."
Mark Harris, Director of The Carlyle Group, commented: "3 Piccadilly Place and The Colmore Plaza have been built to the highest standard specification and both have a BREEAM Excellent rating. With their unrivalled transport connections and, now with Orega providing serviced offices, both schemes can offer occupiers the ultimate in accessibility and flexibility."
Gurdeet Bansal, Director at MA Energy, said: "The choice of The Colmore Plaza Executive for our head office was a relatively easy one. We had been looking for an iconic address that would not only give us the gravitas we needed as a growing business but also the flexibility to grow, something we will certainly be doing over the coming year. Good access by road and rail with good parking facilities were also considerations we took into account when opting to make The Colmore Plaza our home."
