The Old Post Office recently underwent a £5.8 million re-development, including the creation of high specification office spaces, which are ideal for any small businesses looking to grow.

The units include a range of unique features, such as; suspended ceilings, perimeter trunking, high quality office furniture, a separate meeting room and a manned reception. The central location also offers excellent rail and bus links due to its proximity to Central Station.

NBS are looking to attract local digital and tech start-ups with clients in the built environment sector.

Chief Executive at NBS, Richard Waterhouse said: “We are really proud of The Old Post Office and I am delighted that, in addition to providing a great space for our own colleagues to work, we can provide incubator space for other businesses to grow and flourish. We were a start-up business once and I know how important the right kind of accommodation is for new and expanding businesses “

At present, there are five units available which range from one to two and six people spaces, or 119 to 408 square feet, with an asking rent of £17.50 per square foot.

Chris Pearson, Partner at Gavin Black and Partners, is handling the letting. He said: “The Old Post Office is unusual for the city’s historic core, in that its two-storey recessed entrance gives the Grade II listed building a tremendous presence.

“We’re delighted to have been appointed to handling this listing and are looking forward to showing off the superior specification this iconic building has to offer.”
