Stockbrokers moves into office at Whitehills Business Park

Michael Hunt

Hargreave Hale has taken 8,000 sq ft at block three in Neptune Court within Whitehills Business Park in Blackpool.

The firm is moving part of its Blackpool operation to larger new premises at Neptune Court from its existing offices at Springfield Road in Blackpool town centre where it has been located for over 40 years.

A five year lease has been agreed with developer Lanceshire for an undisclosed sum.

Hargreave Hale has six offices around the UK including London, Bangor, Carlisle, Worcester and Lancaster and employs 85 staff at its Blackpool branch. The firm commenced trading from its new home before Christmas, only eight weeks after first having viewed the property.

Stuart Brookes, finance and operations director at Hargreave Hale, said: "The property will provide us with much more space to expand and develop the business and having the luxury of designated parking outside of the front door will be a real bonus for both our staff."

"The scheme at Neptune Court has given us a great opportunity and the flexibility to work closely with developer Lanceshire on the internal design and layout of the property, creating bespoke offices that fit our needs specifically, which is not something that comes along very often, especially in the current market where there is very little speculative development being built at present."

Neptune Court is close to B&Q Warehouse, Premier Inn Hotel, and The Outside Inn Pub & Restaurant. Next Generation has acquired the adjoining plot to develop at health and fitness centre.

Whitehills Business Park extends to 125 acres and is located next to junction 4 of the M55, approximately 2.5 miles south of Blackpool.

Robert Pinkus & Co are sole letting agents for Neptune Court, where two further units, both offering 2,153 sq ft, are still available to let.
