Pound Gates Deal puts Hyde Park House Close to Capacity
The business insurer will make Ipswich’s Hyde Park House its new base, leaving just 2,061 sq ft available
Business insurance and risk management solutions firm Pound Gates is set to make the ground floor of Hyde Park House in Ipswich its new home.
The move represents one of the biggest deals in Ipswich in recent years, with Pound Gates relocating their head office from St Vincent House to Hyde Park House following a refurb of the space due to complete later this year.
The modern offices are set over three floors with recent renovations to the reception, communal areas and toilets. A high-performance air-con system has also been installed in the building.
Located on the edge of Ipswich town centre on the corner of Crown Street and High Street, Hyde Park House offers secure underground parking and also boasts close proximity to motorways and public transport, with excellent links to London and the Midlands.
This latest Pound Gates deal leaves only 2,061 sq ft available at Hyde Park House, located on the second floor, with the rest of the building currently occupied by property specialists Christie, Owen & Davies Ltd, and insurance firm Towergate.
We are very happy to welcome Pound Gates to Hyde Park House. With the building now approaching capacity, it is testament to the the recent refurbishment and now boasts some of the best office space in Ipswich.
Kevin Collins, Pound Gates owner and managing director, said: “With us celebrating our 30th year in business, it is exciting that we can look forward to the next chapter from our new base.
“Hyde Park House has many attractive attributes for us and working with the FI Real Estate Management team has been a positive and refreshing experience. Our new office will be a great place for our staff.”
A spokesperson for joint letting agents Savills and Fenn Wright said: “Pound Gates selected Hyde Park House following a comprehensive study of relocation options in Ipswich and we are delighted to welcome the company to Hyde Park House in what is one of the biggest recent office lettings in the town.”
