Law firm expands at Frogmore’s Universal Square

Frogmore Northern has signed another deal at its Universal Square office scheme in Ardwick, Manchester, as Legal Costs Associates takes extra space at the refurbished building.

Legal Cost Associates currently occupies 4,000 sq ft on the third floor but due to the launch of a new arm, Harbour Consulting LLP, the firm has taken a further 1,000 sq ft to accommodate the growing team.

This latest deal closely follows Dorma Group's relocation from Swinton to Universal Square, where it took 23,000 sq ft across two floors. Since the completion of Phase I of the £12m refurbishment 12 months ago, 80,000 sq ft has been let. Frogmore acquired the 280,000 sq ft complex in June 2005.

Gary Thomas of Frogmore Northern commented: "The fact that a number of companies are taking additional space at the scheme is testament to the success of Universal Square and further underlines Ardwick as a growing business destination."

The third and final phase of Universal Square's refurbishment is well underway and will provide 16,500 sq ft floors to be launched in October 2007.

The quoting rent is £10/sq ft. The joint letting agents are Canning O'Neill and DTZ.
