First tenant moves into the Quadrangle

With the stunning revamped façade of the Quadrangle now revealed, the building’s first tenant has also moved in.

While work is still progressing on site, estate agent, Savills, has relocated to a 1,809 sq ft office unit on the ground floor. Their previous location was on the Promenade facing side of the building where they have remained since work on the refurbishment started back in October 2019.

Chris Jarrett, head of residential for Savills in Cheltenham, said: “We began trading in Cheltenham over a decade ago, first opening our doors in 2007, and are delighted to welcome clients to our new offices in the Quadrangle. With close proximity to the Promenade and Imperial Gardens, the new 21st Century premises offers clients a warm and inviting space in which to discuss their property requirements. While the prime central location offers excellent transport links and a host of retail, café and dining venues both on site and nearby.”

Desirable dining

Of the three remaining retail units on the ground floor available to let, one is currently under offer from Bosco Pizzeria. This space benefits from facing directly onto Imperial Gardens and with planning permission recently approved for some small changes to the plaza design that will create a softer edge between the Quadrangle and the gardens thanks to creative landscaping, it will be a hugely attractive restaurant venue. Work has just started on the plaza area.

“To see the Quadrangle’s new look revealed and the excitement it’s generated has been fantastic,” said Tim Smith, Partner at John Ryde Commercial. “The refurbishment will create premium office space in the heart of Cheltenham, together with an excellent addition to the town’s retail and leisure sectors. The new plaza will benefit not only the tenants but also those who use Imperial Gardens.

“While it remains a challenging time, we’ve been buoyed by the interest we’ve had so far. Along with Bosco, the second-floor office space is also under offer and we’re considering a proposal for the rooftop restaurant. We have three further floors of office space available ranging from 12,924 to 13,279 sq ft with the flexibility to be able to split the spaces into smaller units if needed.”

Work is due to be completed on the Quadrangle at the end of February 2021. Expressions of interest for the retail and restaurant space should be directed to joint agents Hartnell Taylor Cook and John Ryde Commercial. All office enquiries should go to John Ryde Commercial.
