Flexible office space and co-working provider Citibase has opened a new hub in the West Midlands.
The London-based company has taken 10,000 sq ft of space at the Trinity Point building in Halesowen after completion of a £1.2 million renovation by landlord Key Land Capital and Urban Village.
It is the company’s latest facility to open in the West Midlands, joining sites in BIrmingham city centre, Bewdley and Staffordshire, with further expansion plans in the pipeline, according to the company.
Chief executive Steve Jude said: “Reflecting the rise of regions, Citibase Halesowen will provide much-needed affordable office space that allows local startups and businesses to thrive, with the flexibility to easily change the size of their space as they grow.
“In light of covid-19 and the increase in flexible and hybrid working habits, our Citibase Local initiative will also allow customers to enjoy the best of both worlds, utilising our London office spaces part time should they require it.”
The wider refurbishment of Trinity Point has seen a total of 30,000 sq ft of space given a facelift including upgraded toilets and communal areas, a new roof and a replacement lift.
