Irwin Mitchell advise Knight Frank on office relocation


The property advisers have moved into Birmingham's tallest skyscraper

National law firm Irwin Mitchell has advised global property advisers Knight Frank on the relocation of its Birmingham office to 103 Colmore Row, a 26-storey commercial office skyscraper.

Knight Frank has signed a 15-year lease to take 4,376 square feet on the eighteenth floor, along with Sterling Property Ventures and Tristan Capital Partners. 103 Colmore Row is 108 metres tall – the tallest office development in the city. 

Knight Frank is currently based at One Colmore Row, where it employs around 50 people. It is set to move to its new office at the end of March.

Other occupiers in 103 Colmore Row include law firm Shoosmiths, wealth management and professional services group Tilney Smith & Williamson, business and financial advisers Grant Thornton and workspace provider x+why, which will operate 31,500 square feet of flexible office space on the first, second and third floors. x+why will also operate the members’ business club on the eighteenth floor. The two-storey top floor restaurant and ground floor café will both be operated by D&D London.

The Irwin Mitchell team was led by Birmingham-based senior associate Gurpreet Hayer, supported by the planning team’s Victoria Tague and construction lawyer Victoria Kempthorne.

Hayer commented: “We are delighted to have advised Knight Frank on this exciting move.103 Colmore Row is a prestigious building in terms of ESG, design and location and provides a best-in-class working environment. We wish Knight Frank every success in its new home in Birmingham.”

Global law firm Stephenson Harwood advised the building’s landlords.
