The firm’s property management department will oversee rent collection, building maintenance, new lettings, lease advisory and, landlord and tenant liaison with the multiple occupiers of Bridge House.
The business centre is currently home to a range of organisations including Big Help Homes C.I.C, ILM Associates Ltd, JBS, Hope for Kids, Veteran Building Services, FCR Recruitment, North East Building Services, Learning Concepts Ltd and Wearside Women In Need. Bradley Hall Operations Director and Head of Property Management, Catherine Affleck, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed by Sunderland City Council to oversee the property management of Bridge House. The appointment marks another step in our established relationship with Sunderland City Council.
“Tenants will no doubt benefit from the significant investment and development in the city centre, ensuring an outstanding environment for the business and organisations which occupy Bridge House, as well as an impressive location for their clients to visit. Plans for a £26m investment in the city centre’s train station have recently been announced which will transform its transport links and opportunities, in addition to a ‘lettings leap’ and buoyant commercial property market announced by Sunderland City Council.
“Bridge House is a prominent office building located in the heart of the Sunderland city centre and overlooks the Wearmouth Bridge being the main road bridge crossing the River Wear. The office suites to let within this ideally located business centre each have their own dedicated entrance, independent kitchen facilities, toilets and ample free car parking on site and as such would suit a range of uses including studios, storage units or training venues.”
Bradley Hall has also recently gained two award nominations for its work in Sunderland, being named by the Insider North East Property Awards as in the running to win the Property Deal of The Year Award for its land acquisition and letting for STACK Seaburn as well as Public-Private Collaboration of the Year for STACK Seaburn alongside Sunderland City Council.
Councillor Kevin Johnston, dynamic city cabinet member, said: “We are delighted to be working with the team at Bradley Hall to bring more businesses into the city centre as part of an ambitious plan to increase city centre employment by 50 per cent.
“The heart of the city has vast potential to become an economic motor for Sunderland, and through the right partnerships – including this one with Bradley Hall – we are spreading the word about the unique offer Sunderland has for companies looking to join a collaborative, dynamic business community in our transforming city centre.”
