BUSINESS LIFE: COMMERCIAL PROPERTY: Office complex set for major expansion.
A SERVICED office complex in Leamington is set for a major expansion after attracting new companies to the town.
'Number Seven', based in Clarendon Place, offers fully serviced office suites ranging from 150 sq ft to 5,000 sq ft and has attracted three companies since opening its doors just six months ago.
Now the man behind the complex, local businessman Paul Smith, is converting the former coach house of the Regency building into state-of-the-art office accommodation which could house up to 50 staff, on either a serviced or non-serviced basis.
He said: "The first six months have been very successful. We are seventy five per cent let in the primary building and we have clearly filled a need for serviced accommodation in the heart of the town.
"Not only are the companies doing well here - two are expanding within the building - but they have also traded with each other which is great.
"We had always had plans to convert the lower ground floor into a further suite, which we have now done, and we have brought the coach house project forward.
"It is a wonderful building with arched windows along the main faade and it overlooks the gardens."
Recruitment firm Big Fish - the first tenants at Number Seven - marked the anniversary by presenting Mr Smith with some small fish which are now resident in the foyer of the building.
Big Fish managing director Nicola Kleinmann said the premises had proved ideal for her growing company.
"Number Seven has been very good for us," she said. "Not only is it a lovely building in a great location, but it has also allowed us to expand as we have taken on new staff."
The other new tenants are Fuel Recruitment and Government information body CJIT.
