BizSpace, the largest provider of flexible workspace with offices and workshops across the UK, has acquired a 30,000 sq ft office building in Littlehampton, Sussex.

The ‘Enterprise Hub’, located adjacent to a new Morrisons supermarket, comprises a two-storey office building with a mix of open-plan and partitioned office space.

Previously home to The Body Shop’s original headquarters, the site is well-located for local businesses, situated at the junction of the A259 and the A284.

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 commented:

 “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.

 “Arun District Council has supported our proposals to regenerate the Enterprise Hub and we will also be working with the council’s economic development team to provide help and advice to small businesses operating in the area. 

 “We’re committed to investing time and money into developing modern business environments and look forward to creating a vibrant working community where the small businesses and entrepreneurs in the region can thrive.”
