Newcastle business aims to attract digital start-ups with state of the art office incubator space


Jun 1, 2017

As part of their commitment to supporting the local community, NBS are hoping to attract fledging digital and technology companies to their state of the art incubator space in the Old Post Office, on St Nicholas Street, Newcastle.

The Old Post Office recently underwent a £5.8 million re-development, including the creation of high specification office spaces, which are ideal for any small businesses looking to grow.

The units include a range of unique features, such as; suspended ceilings, perimeter trunking, high quality office furniture, a separate meeting room and a manned reception. The central location also offers excellent rail and bus links due to its proximity to Central Station.

NBS are looking to attract local digital and tech start-ups with clients in the built environment sector.

Chief Executive at NBS, Richard Waterhouse said: “We are really proud of The Old Post Office and I am delighted that, in addition to providing a great space for our own colleagues to work, we can provide incubator space for other businesses to grow and flourish. We were a start-up business once and I know how important the right kind of accommodation is for new and expanding businesses “

At present, there are five units available which range from 1-2 and 6 people spaces, or 119 – 408 square foot, with an asking rent of £17.50 per square foot.

Chris Pearson, Partner at Gavin Black and Partners, is handling the letting. He said: “The Old Post Office is unusual for the city’s historic core, in that its two-storey recessed entrance gives the Grade II listed building a tremendous presence.

“We’re delighted to have been appointed to handling this listing and are looking forward to showing off the superior specification this iconic building has to offer.”
