Property investment company, Hollins Murray Group, has announced independent telecommunication provider, Unicom, is to expand its operations to Four6Four, a newly refurbished office scheme in Northenden, Greater Manchester.
Headquartered at Universal House in Sharston, Unicom has taken the whole 12,647 sq ft property, situated on Palatine Road, on a ten-year lease. The deal comes after Hollins Murray announced it had fully let St. John’s House in Altrincham, one of its many refurbished properties within the Group’s £100million portfolio.
Speaking about Unicom’s decision to sign up to Four6Four, Hollins Murray Group’s Chief Executive, Nick Casson commented: “This letting demonstrates that a carefully thought through refurbishment project coupled with a complete rebranding and marketing exercise can transform a building’s letting prospects. Unicom is very successful provider of services to thousands of small businesses and is growing rapidly. We are very pleased to have formed a new relationship with them.”
Chris Earle, Unicom’s CEO, added: “As a rapidly growing business provider second only to BT we are always evaluating how to maintain our high standards of customer care. Four6Four met our requirements in terms of location and size and gives us the extra capacity required to expand our business further, creating up to a hundred positions in South Manchester.”
James Dickinson, director at Canning O’Neill, joint agents for the building with Regional Property Solutions, concluded: “These deals demonstrate the high standard of accommodation that occupiers are demanding. Our client’s decision to proactively improve its properties to attract tenants with good covenants, as opposed to waiting for occupiers to sign up to sub-standard schemes, has meant that the lights are now on at Four6Four, when many other schemes are still sat in the dark.”
