Estate agents agent law firm relocating to Belfast's Cathedral Quarter

By Staff Reporter

Estate agents Savills and law firm Davidson McDonnell have confirmed they are relocating to Belfast's Cathedral Quarter.

Both are set to move into Longbridge House later this year.

The four-storey building was bought by the Holywood property investment and development firm Wirefox in May 2016, and had undergone complete refurbishment over the last two years.

Savills will be moving from Lesley Studios, where they have been based for the past 13 years.

In that time, the Belfast office has grown from a team of two people to over 20. Ben Turtle, head of the Savills Belfast office, described the move as "a milestone" for his branch.

"The new space positions us for further growth and expansion," he said.

Similarly, Davidson McDonnell have enjoyed substantial growth since their inception in 2013. The firm's expansion into various sectors has resulted in the need for greater office space to accommodate their team.

Davidson McDonnell director Ross Davidson said the move will enable the firm to continue to expand.

Wirefox has been involved in the Flatiron building on Victoria Street and the large-scale development of The Paper Exchange on Chichester Street. Last summer it bought the Castle Court shopping centre for £125m.

Michael Wright, Wirefox's director of asset management, said the penthouse floor of 5,425 sq ft is now the last available space in Longbridge House.
