The newspaper group, whose titles include the Warrington Guardian, has agreed a 10-year lease with landlord DIB Partnership on 10,000 sq ft at 4 Cygnet Court on the edge of Warrington town centre.
The property is part of Warrington Centre Park, an established park on the southern fringe of Warrington town centre, home to Phonak, Clearsky Accounting, Countryside Properties, Pearson Vue and others. Newsquest relocated from The Academy in Bridge Street in the town centre.
Simon Roddam of BE Group commented: “Whilst there is a healthy supply of office accommodation on the Centre Park estate, 4 Cygnet Court was well positioned to attract this occupier in terms of the offer and proximity to the park’s amenities.”
Roddam added: “Having just collated the Warrington and environs office take-up figures for the Manchester Office Agents Forum, it was clear to see that take-up has increased by 30% on where it was at the same point last year. This is clearly encouraging and we hope occupier confidence remains through these turbulent times following the EU referendum. It’s business as usual in Warrington.”
