If proof was needed that the Southampton and M27 corridor office lettings market is beginning to show signs of improvement then the announcement by Stonebridge Corporate Ltd’s of the opening of its new Southern Regional Office is a good start. Stirling House, St John’s Road, Hedge End was only on the market a few weeks through letting agents Keygrove Chartered Surveyors and Stonebridge took possession the day after the previous tenant vacated.
Established in 2005, Stonebridge Corporate Ltd is a privately owned independent insurance intermediary, specialising in the mid-corporate, property and construction sectors. The new Hedge End office will cover Southampton and the South Coast.
Andrew Archibald, Director of Keygrove Chartered Surveyors, commented “It is good to see a company on the expansion trail and I have never before collected the keys of an office from the departing tenant and given them to the new occupier on the same day! Both are encouraging signs.”
Stonebridge Corporate Managing Director Ben Burford commented. “We see the Southampton market as a major growth area and we are delighted to have secured the services of such a high profile figure as Adrian Beale as our Regional Director in this, the first of our planned regional centres.”
