PROPERTY agents have been appointed to help secure lettings for Westgate, the proposed new grade A office building in the heart of Solihull.
Nick Williams of Savills and Scott Rutherford of Cushman and Wakefield will represent the building to potential occupiers in the regional and national commercial property market.
Westgate will be a highly sustainable, 120,000 sq ft landmark commercial building across eight floors with staff wellbeing, flexibility of space and future proofing built in from the start.
And with a planned BREAAM Excellent rating, WELL Building Platinum and Wired Score Platinum accreditation, it will represent a unique proposition in the local marketplace.
At the heart of Solihull’s established business district, Westgate aims to provide a forward-thinking ecosystem of working environments.
Scott said: “This is a major new landmark for Solihull town centre and the borough as a whole and the wider region.
“Both sustainable and innovative by design, Westgate is an important building for all the right reasons and will help attract new jobs to Solihull for both current and future generations.”
Nick added: “Westgate is an important statement not just for Solihull, but the region, and indeed the entire country post-Covid. It is a huge vote of confidence and a remarkable new building for the town centre.
“It complements what is already in place in the heart of one of the most dynamic and successful regional economies in the country.”
Councillor Ian Courts, Leader of Solihull Council and Portfolio Holder for the Economy, said: “Westgate helps reaffirm our business edge here in the heart of Solihull.
“It shows how we are taking a proactive approach to future development in the town centre and reflects the council’s ethos of demanding the highest standards of design while placing environmental concerns, sustainability and the climate challenge at the heart of everything we do.”
Westgate is being promoted by Solihull Council as part of the wider Town Centre Masterplan approved by Cabinet in November 2020.
