RNLI docks at Quartz Point

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is making a splash in Solihull by becoming the most recent tenant to take space at Quartz Point, SPREFS new £9 million office development. 

The RNLI has signed a new ten-year lease on unit eight, totaling 3,127 sq ft/290 sq m, at a rent of £19.00 per sq ft.

The office will be used as the regional fund raising centre and has seen staff relocate from their previous base in Cardiff. 

Savills acted on behalf of the RNLI, with CB Richard Ellis and KWB acting as joint agents for the landlord.

Will Ventham, associate director at CB Richard Ellis in Birmingham, said: “It’s not without a hint of irony that the RNLI chose Quartz Point, which is located in one of the most landlocked parts of the country. Despite the absence of water, the letting is testament to the quality of the development and demonstrates its superiority over other schemes in the local area in terms of specification, on-site amenities and access to transport links.”

Quartz Point comprises 12 high-quality office units for sale or let, ranging from 2,300 sq ft/214 sq m to 6,260 sq ft/581 sq m, plus 130 on-site car parking spaces. The development was funded by Strutt and Parker Real Estate Financial Services (SPREFS).

In June, Edenhouse Solutions, a Birmingham-based SAP software consultancy, was the first company to move to Quartz Point, taking 3,000 sq ft/ 280 sq m, on a ten-year lease.

Jonathan Ottewell, associate in Savills Birmingham office, said: “The RNLI was keen to find a location that provided a good quality regional base whilst also allowing easy access for staff and visitors alike. Quartz Point provided solutions to both of these requirements with the added benefit of offering value for money.”
