The building houses many established companies such as Turner & Townsend, ABG Law, The Press Association, Direct Health, among others.

Mark Tomlinson, Director at FHP Property Consultants who acted on behalf of the sellers in the deal commented:
“This is a landmark building in Nottingham City Centre in a prime position for retailers and office occupiers alike, AEW have done an excellent job in the asset management of the building in retaining such a well-established Tenant profile. The property offers the ability for the new owners to improve on the office income further with some 20,000 sq ft available, the first floor also provides an attractive opportunity for conversion to residential apartments with the planning consent already in place.”

Taj Ubhi of Nine Property Group, the purchaser, commented:
“We are absolutely delighted with the acquisition of Pearl House, it demonstrates our ambition for the group and compliments the strength and growth of our diverse property portfolio. We have ambitious plans to continue the asset management of the property to add further value over the next two years via an un-compromising mixed residential and commercial operation.

The forecast has started well with new tenancies being taken up already. We are aggressively acquiring commercial, student and residential new build sites throughout the UK and would like to thank Rachael Briggs of Austin Moore, Mark Tomlinson of FHP, Neil Roper of Assetz Capital and Julian Lawrence of Choice Business for their professional support and guidance throughout this purchase.”

  1. It is great news to fill a large empty building. However, the council needs to do more to attract Harvey Nichols or Selfridges & Co. The shock is that Nottingham does not have a Harvey Nichols when Leeds, Bristol and Liverpool have one meaning that Greater Nottingham doesnt despite being larger in population and students than the previous three mentioned before.

    There are a number of retailers that dont exist in Nottingham but have units in other core cities. Nottingham council needs to do a lot more to promote this city as well as lower business rates.
