Around 50,000 sq ft is available to let at the building on Dickinson Street, off Portland Street and the agents appointed to market the space are Edwards & Co and Lambert Smith Hampton.

Existing occupiers include Cable & Wireless UK on the 1st floor and Electricity North West on the 7th and 8th floors.

Linley House receptionAccommodation is available to let at a quoting rent of £16.50/sq ft with car parking at a ratio of 1:1,000 sq ft available at £2,500 a year.

Andrew Timms, partner, Edwards & Co, said: "The refurbishment of Linley House is a significant project in the city centre in the current market and we're presenting high quality office space at competitive rentals, which is crucial in the current climate when businesses are looking at occupational costs more than ever. We already have good interest in the property and are confident of disposing of the space in a market where there is diminishing levels of good quality space with large floor plates."

The refurbishment was designed by architect Buttress Fuller Alsop Williams, project managed by Walker Sime and delivered by contractor, JFW. Eight floors were remodelled and a new double height reception created. External cladding was replaced.
