Colmore Partners has taken 772 sq ft of space on the first floor of the Grade II* listed Imperial and Whitehall, part of The Grand, Birmingham.
The firm has signed a five-year lease with landlord Hortons’ Estate Ltd, which has invested in the modern refurbishment of Imperial and Whitehall to create flexible working suites, characterised by many of the iconic building’s original features.
Nina Meeks of Hortons’ Estate said: “We are very pleased that Colmore Partners has chosen Imperial and Whitehall as its long-term home. It is an iconic building that has been associated with the Hortons family since the 1870s, and we have invested in its refurbishment to exceptional standards. There are only a handful of remaining office suites available.”
Founded by financial industry experts Richard Meek and Wendy Fellows, who have over 50 years combined experience in the financial services industry, Colmore Partners are a staff-owned company.
Richard Meek, Managing Director of Colmore Partners, said: “I’m thrilled to secure space in the heart of the Birmingham business community, in such an iconic building as The Grand. It was always our intention to take prime Birmingham office space, in line with the plans we made when we launched the business in March this year. We look forward to welcoming our clients and contacts alike.”
Colmore’s letting is the second recent let at Imperial and Whitehall, following the arrival of the popular and fast-growing energy technology company Octopus Energy earlier in the year. The award-winning energy supplier currently rents a 1,123 sq ft first-floor office suite in the building.
