BE Group has let an 8,600 sq ft office to one of Europe’s biggest managed hosting and network service providers, Claranet, at 620 Birchwood Boulevard Business Park in Warrington.
Birchwood Boulevard Business Park is an established office park owned by Frankel Brow, a property company of Betfred’s Fred Done. The park comprises 41 self-contained offices which have recently undergone a comprehensive refurbishment.
London-registered Claranet was founded in 1996 and turns over more than £160m, operating in six countries.
Joint letting agent Simon Roddam, associate director of BE Group, said: “Birchwood Boulevard Business Park has been firmly repositioned in the local office market following a speculative refurbishment of the entire scheme. The size mix of availability is geared towards occupier demand, and the recent spate of lettings is testament to the quality offer at the park.”
Roddam continued: “Claranet consolidated two offices as part of their move to Birchwood. This incorporated an existing Warrington base and an office in Salford Quays. Birchwood Boulevard Business Park provided the ideal property solution in what has been a significant office letting for Birchwood.”
Claranet UK committed to a five-year lease, and were represented by GN2. Joint agents at Birchwood Boulevard Business Park are BE Group and Knight Frank.
