Warrington’s St James Business Centre is now more than 70 per cent let following its latest tenant deals.

Contract caterer Optima Catering has moved in to the popular 80,000 sq ft business centre on Wilderspool Causeway to provide a base for its growing operation in the area.  The company has taken a 694 sq ft unit on a five-year lease.

Existing tenant Claims Helpdesk has taken a further 1,124 sq ft to bring its occupation at the building to almost 4,500 sq ft.  The company is now the third largest occupier at St James Business Centre, which is managed by Langtree on behalf of Wire Regeneration.

“Both lettings illustrate the centre’s enduring appeal to ambitious SMEs, who need flexibility with regards to their office size and lease requirements,” said Jayne Furnival, group property director at Langtree.

“Whilst it has the advantage of being on the edge of the town centre St James Business Centre is also very self-contained, with everything from a lively café to the popular atrium break out space and its fully-serviced & conventional offices.  Our flexible leases and facilities mean businesses can always find space that suits their stage of development and cost needs,” added Furnival.

A further three offices are currently under negotiation.
