St George’s House, Leicester LE1

HEWN has acquired four floors in St George’s House, Leicester on behalf of global workspace provider Regus.

The centre is a short walk from the station on the corner of St George’s Way and Charles Street. It’s Regus’ second centre in the city.

Will Kinnear, Director ofH EWN, said: “Having been influential in securing their initial successful centre in Grove Park on the outskirts of Leicester, Regus asked us to help them find a second location, this time in the centre of Leicester. We are delighted to have been able to do this. St George’s House is a superb centre that fits the bill perfectly.”

At the official opening on 8 October, City Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby said: “When we launched our economic action plan in 2012, we highlighted the need to provide more good-quality office accommodation that would support existing businesses while attracting new investment to the city. This refurbished building provides exactly that, in a prime city centre location close to the railway station.”

Steve Purdy, UK Managing Director at Regus commented: “Regus’ growth and investment in the city is testament to increasing demand for flexible places to work that offer a productive environment for business people to touch down, meet, co-work or base a business.

“St George’s House is an exciting addition to our network in the Midlands. We expect strong take-up from local small businesses, start-ups and remote workers as well as national firms opening satellite offices and global businesses establishing a footprint in the Midlands.

“As world leader in flexible workspace, we are committed to continually expanding our network and making business easier for our customers.”

• 12,432 sq ft on four floors (third, fourth, fifth and sixth) of St George’s House which has just been refurbished at a cost of £1m
