Thursday 4th February 2016 marked the long-awaited launch of the White Building, Southampton. On a sunny day that provided a brief reprieve from gale-force wind and torrential rain, and with the help of retained agents JLL and LSH, property professionals gathered together for the launch of this newly refurbished office building.
Formerly known as Queens Keep, this iconic office has undergone a dramatic transformation not only in name but in nature. The previously neglected office accommodation and tired common parts have been redesigned to provide contemporary, design-led collaborative office space.
As part of the transformation, the Landlords have been keen to support the health and well-being of occupiers by making provisions for secure cycle storage, new shower and changing facilities, and social breakout space. Foremost, the intention has been to create the kind of space that tenants can enjoy and feel proud to occupy.
This is something that is already proving successful with pre-lets in both the tower and podium agreed, as well as a great deal of interest in the remaining offices.
Andrew Oliver of Ashville Asset Management said;
It's great to see all the hard work everyone has put in finally pay off. We hoped to create offices that offered something more for occupiers and we are very pleased with the results.
Nella Pang of retained agents JLL said;
JLL is thrilled to be involved with such an exciting and dynamic office space. White Building’s outstanding refurbishment reflects the sustainable and collaborative working environment all ambitious companies’ desire. From its vibrant break out areas and extensive facilities, offering various options from specification to floor size to rents. White Building really is a one of its kind within the city centre of Southampton.
Andrew Hodgkinson of retained agents Lambert Smith Hampton said;
White Building really stands out from the crowd. It has been transformed into one of the iconic buildings in the city centre and with the quality of refurbishment undertaken by the Landlord, it offers a prestigious address. For businesses that are looking to associate themselves with the best space in Southampton, White Building will become the location of choice.
