Attention to detail has been paramount with a mix of retained original features and contemporary finishes.  Both buildings offer attractive offices with distinctive style and character, aimed at SME’s. The proof of the pudding is the fact that both lettings were signed prior to completion of the refurbishment works. A 2nd floor suite of 1,456 sq ft at Kenworthys Buildings is now being refurbished to the same standard and is available at a competitive quoting rental of £15.50 per sq ft. At 49 King Street, we have suites available from 379 sq ft to 830 sq ft and rents (including service charge) start from £950 pcm.
