More than 7,000 sq ft of business space at St James Business Centre – Warrington’s largest hub for small-to-medium enterprises points to the robustness of the town’s economy, say its owners.
Wire Regeneration, the joint venture between Langtree and Warrington Borough Council which operates the St James Business Centre on Wilderspool Causeway, says that the post-pandemic upturn is “real, sustained and indicative of the resilience of local businesses.”
Six new tenants have signed deals at St James Business Centre. The largest deal, for recruitment specialist Lignum, is for almost 3,500 square feet.
“SMEs are the bellwether for any economy and the response of our tenants since the pandemic eased suggests we’re set fair for a period of sustained growth,” says Jayne Furnival, group property director at Langtree.
“An asset like St James is vital to any town wishing to grow a diversified stock of businesses and whatever a firm’s place on its growth curve, we have the office space and lease terms to suit them.”
More than 250 staff now work on site at the thriving centre.
“We were on the look-out for modern, comfortable space for our growing team that had the benefit of a central location with parking and St James fitted the bill perfectly.
We’re fully geared up to help match employers and candidates as the economy hits its stride.”
St James Business Centre is an 80,000 sq. ft. building offering serviced, conventional, and virtual office space to rent in Warrington town centre, close to train stations and with extensive on-site parking. We also offer co-working space for anyone needing flexible working without the demands of permanent office space.
It’s a brilliant location with plentiful parking, easy to reach by road or public transport.
The range of small, medium and large office suites has provided us with the flexibility to tailor the space and cost to meet our requirements without moving away from the building.
As a small business, the convenience of helpful support staff to greet visitors and send a receive mail and parcels is a real bonus, as is the availability of dedicated meeting rooms and available at short notice for customer meetings and product presentations.
Tenant at St James Business Centre since 2013
Since moving into St James Business Centre, we have found the team to be extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. They have supported us on our journey from our start-up phase where we initially needed a small serviced office space through to us moving into our new larger offices. As the business continues to grow, it’s reassuring to know we will be able to remain at the business centre for the long term as Langtree gives us the flexibility to move into larger office space and when we need it.
