A city centre office complex is set to reopen this February following completion of a multi-million-pound refurbishment programme.

Spire on Pilgrim Street is being unveiled following a year-long refurbishment led by the building’s new owners, Newcastle-based luxury office space provider Central Space.

The move sees the property, which is located at the top of Akenside Hill and fronts onto the Tyne Bridge overlooking the Quayside, transformed into 38,566 sq. ft. of high-end serviced Grade A office space, set within the original 1970s landmark building.

A new look designer interior accommodates Spire’s Platinum Suite range, from four person to 40 person offices with state-of-the-art meeting and conferencing facilities.

Other new features include the Platinum Lounge with a barista station, unlimited premium refreshments, co-working space, a manned reception, 24/7 access and one monthly fee covering all utilities, ultra-fast broadband, office cleaning and more.

A new rooftop terrace is also planned to follow later in the year to complete the ambitious project.

The refurbishment has been undertaken by the Central Space team. The company owns and manages several office properties across the North East region including Alderman Fenwick’s House, one of Newcastle’s most historic buildings, and specialises in bespoke fitout.

Central Space has seen a big increase in uptake of its bespoke hybrid workspace across its client base, with both large and small companies seeking higher quality space and amenities.

The revitalised three-storey building promotes improved productivity and sustainability for SMEs, professional services and creative agencies, attracted by flexible space with a high energy efficiency rating (EPC B) and fantastic access to local services, parking and transport links.

Managing Director Marc Dixon commented: “The quality is impressive while the attention to detail, and use of energy efficient, environmentally friendly construction methods within an existing structure ensure the new look building will appeal to occupiers with a sustainable focus and wanting a low carbon footprint.”

He added that Spire is attracting a high level of interest from occupiers across a range of sectors. The building lends itself to flexible hybrid working with a high specification fit out that appeals to occupiers and their staff.
