RO Real Estate is pleased to announce that NMT International Shipping UK Limited (“NMT Shipping”) has expanded its presence at Waterside Place, the RO’s Southampton office development that is situated at Town Quay.
NMT Shipping had moved into the first floor of 5 Waterside Place in November 2020, and have now also taken 4,184 sq. ft. of further space on the ground floor of that building. This leaves the last remaining top floor suite at 3 Waterside Place; where 5,266 sq. ft. of space is available.
3 and 5 Waterside Place are situated on Southampton’s harbour front, affording excellent views of the Solent. The buildings are immediately adjacent to the A33, which is the main thoroughfare through the city, providing road access to the M27 and the M3.
Town Quay is a beacon of civic pride for the city and is an established commercial waterfront scheme which incorporates offices, retail units and the passenger terminal for the Isle of Wight ferry. Nearby office occupiers include P&O Carnival (headquarters), PwC and Lloyds Bank.
David Kershaw, Group Real Estate Director, RO Real Estate commented: “We are extremely proud to have let further space to NMT Shipping and are heartened by the company’s increased commitment to our flagship harbourfront development; to Southampton, an important international shipping node; and to the United Kingdom during a period of upheaval in and rapid changes to global trade.” NMT finds itself in the company of a variety of other well-known occupiers on the wider estate including the NHS; Faststream Recruitment; and the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing, and Communities.
