In the biggest office deal in Sale & Altrincham in 2011, Manchester commercial property agents Canning O’Neill have let 14,242 sq ft of offices at Jackson House, Sale to Smooth Financial Consultants Ltd.
Jackson House is owned by London & Harrogate based Commercial Estates Group. Smooth has taken half of the fourth floor on a five year lease.
Robert Jones, FD at Smooth Financial, commented that the company’s recent, rapid growth led to the need to move and so began their search for offices to lease in Sale. “At Smooth, our biggest asset is our people. We have trained and developed a great team and with our rapid growth we needed a HQ that could provide a base to expand and fulfill our potential.
“We endeavoured to find the perfect local property and Jackson House was the ideal choice. The new open plan space incorporates our different divisions including a training academy suite, breakout rooms and communal areas for staff to socialise and relax. The whole company is buzzing about the move and looking forward to 2012 and beyond at Jackson House!”
Antonia Martin-Wright, manager of the Manchester collection at CEG commented: “We are delighted to welcome Smooth Financial to Jackson House in Sale, and are confident that the space will meet all their varying requirements. This letting demonstrates Jackson House’s flexibility in providing future-proof space for businesses that are looking to potentially expand and grow, while the town centre facilities, on-site parking and excellent public transport makes it an attractive place for employees to work.”
Current occupiers in the building include IBM, Chep UK and AA Projects Construction Consultants. Savills and Canning O’Neill are joint agents on the scheme.
Comments Conrad O’Neill of Canning O’Neill, “We are shortly to announce another, smaller letting at Jackson House, but we still have over 70,000 sq ft available to let. Suites are available from 874 sq ft however one of Jackson House’s USP’s is the large floor-plates it offers. The 2nd floor total 29,219 sq ft and is the largest single open plan floor-plate available in South Manchester at present. The floor-space at Jackson House, combined with the town centre location, generous on-site parking and Metrolink accessibility make Jackson House the perfect choice for call centre and telemarketing companies, but the building can equally accommodate all types of office occupiers”.
