Teesside independent commercial property consultants Dodds Brown LLP and national agents CBRE have brought to the market a new café / bar/ restaurant unit as part of the Centre Square grade A office development in the heart of Middlesbrough city centre.
Located on the ground floor of 1 Centre Square, which will be home to 720 Middlesbrough Council staff when they relocate from the Civic Centre later this year, the unit extends to 4,500 sq ft with potential for subdivision and a generous external seating area opening onto Centre Square opposite MIMA (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art).
“This will undoubtedly be the best located Cafe/restaurant unit in Middlesbrough and will build on the recent success of the Holiday Inn Express, national restaurant brands Bistrot Pierre and Turtle Bay and the independent food and beverage operators on Baker/ Bedford Street which have all raised the standard and broadened the appeal of the food and beverage offer in the city centre,” explains Richard Wilson, Senior Associate Partner at Middlesbrough-based Dodds Brown.
“The city centre now offers a first class performance venue in the newly refurbished town hall and with a recently opened Premier Inn and a new Best Western Hotel planned for Vancouver House on Corporation Road, the new Food and Beverage unit presents an unrivalled opportunity for the right operator to capture the day time trade from the office workers that will be based in the new Centre Square offices, but also to benefit from shoppers and leisure visitors extending right through to the evening and night time economy.”
James Fox, Director in the Leeds office of CBRE, adds: “Centre Square is one of the most important civic open spaces in the region and will increasingly be the focal point for events and activities, while Middlesbrough has a growing reputation for hosting major events, such as Radio One’s Big Weekend, a Take That concert and Rugby League World Cup matches in 2021.
“Phase two of Centre Square will bring a further 100,000 sq ft of office space and once completed potentially a total of 3,000 office workers for the whole development. Phase two will also have a cluster of restaurants, cafés and bars in a further ground floor food and beverage space of 5,800 sq ft, opening out onto Centre Square.”
