BizSpace acquires former Body Shop HQ
Flexible workspace provider BizSpace has acquired a 30,000 sq ft office building in Littlehampton, which formerly acted as the Body Shop’s original UK headquarters.
The new ‘Enterprise Hub’, which is located adjacent to a recently opened Morrisons supermarket, comprises a two-storey office building with a mix of open-plan and partitioned office space.
BizSpace will fully refurbish the office building, providing 73 new workspaces available on short-term agreements and at affordable licence fees. The planned refurbishment works will update the existing interiors, providing modern workspaces, centre-wide Wi-Fi and a large communal area.
Nick Smith, development director at BizSpace, said: “This acquisition is part of our ambitious growth plans to acquire single sites, portfolios and development opportunities. The Enterprise Hub is a fantastic site that offers huge potential for redevelopment. We start work next week to provide the area and local community with much-needed modern workspace facilities, and anticipate completion early in the second half of 2018.”
