 Six new deals have been sealed with both existing and new tenants at Trafalgar House in Altrincham.

Property management and development company, Selbourne Group, is midway through a £3million refurbishment at the site and the newly remodelled office space has led to Canning O’Neill and Regional Property Solutions securing the latest contracts.

Located on Manchester Road, Trafalgar House comprises 36,000 sq ft of high quality contemporary work space, including a new cafe on the ground floor, secure bike storage and lockers, as well as upgraded shower facilities.

Life insurance company That’s Life, has expanded its occupational requirement within the building to 2,000 sq ft taking Suite 9 on the 1st floor, whilst Rullion, a recruitment company, has also taken 2,000 sq ft on a 3 year lease. The ‘all-inclusive’ rental package has attracted E M Accountancy to expand into 403 sq ft in Suite 5 moving from 284 sq ft. New start-up companies have also taken space on the 1st floor – Flumlite Technologies take 403 sq ft, Brook Meade Insolvency take 415 sq ft and Money Worries take 815 sq ft.

The 2nd floor is currently being renovated to offer larger spaces of 1,995 sq ft, 4,000 sq ft and 5,500 sq ft. The first suite on the 2nd floor has already been let to Spatial Developments, who move from 911 sq ft to 1,995 sq ft. Renovations to the ground floor will also provide 3 suites of between 2,000 s ft and 1,450 sq ft.

The deals come after the newly created ‘The Studios’ earlier in the year welcomed a mixture of medical and fitness businesses which include Dental Scan Ltd, Cheshire Yoga Ltd, Flawless Skin Clinic Ltd, as well as newly completed letting to physiotherapist Helen Roberts.

Michael de Massey, MD of Selbourne Group, said: “Following the completion of these deals, we will have successfully let 18,000 sq ft at Trafalgar House in 12 months. We see this as a big vote of confidence for the building and for Broadheath as a place to do business.”

James Dickinson, director at Canning O’Neill, continued: “Businesses are very excited about the new offering here at Trafalgar House, there is a real buzz thanks to the mix of organisations that have decided to move here. There’s a wide range of options available and it’s fantastic to see existing businesses expand here without having to relocate.”
