Project Story

Formerly known as Albany House the 11-storey, 51,000 sq ft office building will receive a £2.5 million package of improvement. Drawing on the buildings mid-century heritage the works will include the comprehensive internal strip-out and refurbishment of common areas and vacant office suites, creating stylish contemporary circulation spaces.

The office area on the first floor will be reconfigured to provide a combination of flexible co-working space, smaller cellular offices and open-plan suites, along with a bookable meeting room and break out area.

The exterior of the building will be partially reclad with the retail units fronting Hurst Street receiving new frontages. A coffee shop unit will link internally to the enhanced and reconfigured reception, and tenants will benefit from new bike storage and shower facilities.

Prominently positioned on Hurst Street and just a few minutes’ walk from New Street Station, the Southside Building represents the leading commercial opportunity in that part of the city for occupiers seeking smaller or co-working space within easy access of the city core.
Key Challenges
