Tenants of Albert North receive a number of perks, including high-speed broadband, rent and rate incentives, free public health initiatives for all staff and a town centre loyalty card with exclusive discounts and incentives.
Richard Himsworth, CEO of Salesfire, said “We’ve grown dramatically over the past 6 months, more than trebling in size with a team of 23 full time employees. Outgrowing our current premises, we needed somewhere which could cope with our ambitions for further growth. Our move to Albert Road is a fantastic opportunity, allowing us the space to expand further in an area that’s regenerating and becoming home to many other successful businesses.”
The development will also include food and beverage offerings starting with a vegan café called Alkaline Kitchen which is due to open in January, serving a 100% plant-based menu from Monday to Saturday.
The multi-million-pound regeneration project, which lies on the main thoroughfare of the town, is being driven by local property developers Jomast in partnership with Middlesbrough Council.
Mark Hill, Commercial Director at Jomast, said: “The latest letting to Salesfire means that 20,000 sq ft of space has now been taken up at Albert North in under 6 months which is some achievement and great for the town”
Michelle McPhee, City Centre Manager at Middlesbrough Council, said: “We’re thrilled that businesses are already responding positively to the offer at Albert North.
“The development will further entice creative and digital businesses to move into the centre of Middlesbrough, complementing our already thriving digital sector based in the Boho Zone.
“Providing suitable office space to a wide variety of businesses is a key component of our strategy to create vibrant city centre in Middlesbrough, in addition to further developing our retail and leisure sectors.”
The development is part of a wider strategy to drive business investment to Middlesbrough’s city centre. The strategy also includes significant investment to the rail station and the development of Grade A office space on Centre Square.
