Regus takes on new space in city as business grows

By John Mulgrew

Office space provider Regus has landed additional room in Belfast city centre.

The firm has taken the third floor of Arnott House, which is located on Bridge Street. The floor space measures just over 6,000sq ft.

Arnott House has undergone refurbishment of the communal areas and first floor to provide modern accommodation behind a listed facade.

Regus will share the building with a number of businesses, including Boston-based cyber security firm Rapid7.

The other two floors, including the third floor taken by Regus, are currently being refurbished.

The deal for the new letting was completed by commercial property firm CBRE.

David Wright, director of office agency at CBRE, said: "We have been working closely with Regus as strategic partner to assist with its global expansion.

"Our aim was to secure a strong, prominent location and Arnott House is an example of an office building that will appeal to a wide range of companies seeking flexible office space.

"The serviced office sector is an extremely important aspect of the property market, providing short-term flexible office space for a multitude of businesses, from start-ups to large, global companies. The sector is set to continue to expand in the future with the continued rise in agile working practices."

Richard Morris, UK chief executive of Regus, added: "This letting will enable Regus to strengthen our presence in Belfast and get a foothold for further growth into the regions across Northern Ireland."
