Blume consolidates at Towers Business Park
The firm has taken 10,500 sq ft at Property Alliance Group’s Egerton House in Didsbury.
Blume, a customer acquisition specialist for the legal sector, has signed a 10-year lease at Towers. The move sees the company relocate from a pair of sites in West Didsbury and the city centre into a single Manchester head office for its 100 staff.
“Combining our Manchester offices and teams under one roof forms part of a wider ambition for Blume’s continued growth and evolution,” Blume chief executive Alex Kenny explained.
“Egerton House suits our culture perfectly, being in a buoyant business park with great amenities, new offices, and lots going on. We are looking forward to creating a new, branded workplace for our hard-working team to enjoy and thrive in.”
The space Blume will occupy has been recently refurbished. Further refurbishment work is planned to the first floor, with new suites available from 1,500 sq ft to 8,000 sq ft.
James Dickinson, director at Canning O’Neill – joint agent with JLL at Egerton House – said: “Alliance has created a high-quality office provision through its refurbishment programme, ensuring the space is up-to-date and appealing to employees. They understand the audience and type of tenants seeking space in Manchester’s most popular suburbs.
“Towers is a well-connected and well-served business park, and we are very pleased to see Alliance’s accommodation continue to attract successful and growing occupiers in a competitive office market.”
Egerton House is the only office at Towers not owned by Kennedy Wilson, which acquired the remaining 290,000 sq ft for £82m in 2016 from US investor Lone Star.
Rodney Hunt, investment director at Property Alliance Group, said: “Egerton House is a prestigious office building for established and growing businesses.
“The quality of the office suites combined with the business park’s on-site facilities – car parking, café and communal spaces, outdoor landscaping and green areas, to name a few – make for an appealing workspace for employers tapping into a local and commuter talent pool. We are delighted to welcome Blume at Egerton House, we hope they will enjoy their new environment.”
