The beauty of is that we can connect small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to commercial property right across the country. We have a great number of areas that are growing in popularity for commercial property.

The city of Manchester has one of the widest selections of commercial property available to let, with numerous business centre complexes offering a combination of refurbished traditional buildings and new, contemporary premises. Old Trafford and Newton Heath are two of the most popular business districts in Manchester.

Manchester is a fast-emerging as a rival to Birmingham as the nation’s second city, with its excellent transport links to the surrounding cities of Liverpool, Leeds and beyond. Manchester’s Northern Quarter is also a bustling corner of the city, with its cosmopolitan atmosphere home to the creative industries.


Arguably the largest commercial hub in Yorkshire, Leeds offers an attractive collection of business space from fully serviced, modernised offices to high quality light industrial units.The city of Leeds also benefits from excellent transport links across Yorkshire and beyond via the M1 and M62 motorways and as part of the UK’s mainline rail network connecting Leeds to Scotland and the capital.

Leeds is the fastest-growing city in the country and is the regional headquarters of many government departments as well as being regarded as the financial capital of the north.


As the nation’s second city, Birmingham remains a very popular area to let commercial property in the UK and we can provide businesses with a location to maximise their full growth potential. We also have sites towards the north-east of the city that are away from the glare of inner-city activity but retain good transport links via the districts of Tyseley and Bordesley Green.

Birmingham has close links to its three universities and two university colleges, making it the largest centre of higher education in the UK outside of London. It is also regarded as a major international commercial centre with the second largest urban economy in the UK.


Central London continues to enjoy significant interest in its commercial property while many other areas across the country have experienced a softening in demand due to the current economic climate. London remains a thriving centre of national and global business and the focus on the capital is only set to intensify next year with the 2012 Summer Olympics coming to London.

At not only are our London commercial properties close to a variety of cultural attractions, they are also located in the epicentre of innovative, vibrant districts that continue to inspire fledgling SMEs. These include Canary Wharf and Soho to the Silicon Roundabout and Southwark, which is aiming to become London’s top business district following commitment to significant regeneration in the area.
