Hortons’ Estate is investing £1million in the upgrade of Fifteen Colmore Row, Birmingham.
Plans include cleaning the exterior in keeping with the adjacent Grand, where the wraps are coming off the listed building following Hortons’ four-year project to restore the façade overlooking St Philip’s cathedral.
In addition to the exterior facelift, the common areas are being upgraded and a 7,227 sq ft office suite on the second floor will be refurbished to include new toilet and shower facilities and a new heating and cooling system.
The vacant suite is the last remaining in the 41,000 sq ft building, where occupiers include accountancy firm Dains, and construction consultants Cundall and Rider Levett Bucknall. Both Cundall and Rider Levett Bucknall are part of the project team assisting with the delivery of the project.
Richard Norgrove, property director at Hortons’ Estate, said:
Our investment in both Fifteen Colmore Row and The Grand will considerably enhance the street scene along Colmore Row, Birmingham’s premier business address.
As part of The Grand restoration, Hortons’ will release 16 new office suites, ranging from 183 – 2,800 sq ft. These will be available during December through agents Johnson Fellows and Lambert Smith Hampton.
