With demand for larger office spaces having been largely obliterated by the pandemic, one Leicestershire landlord has devised a creative solution. Simon Marlow-Thomas, landlord at The Mill Business Park, Marston Trussell has reconfigured 2,000 sq ft commercial space into nine smaller premises, ideal for flexible working.

“After quickly realising that enquiries for large office premises were no longer forthcoming, we took action to create smaller, serviced offices that would appeal to freelancers, start-ups or SME businesses” explains Simon. “It took us about three months to convert and refurbish the space into modern, Covid secure premises. Each unit offers a viable alternative to the dining table and the chance for business owners or the self-employed to work undisturbed in a peaceful, rural environment.”

Our director, Andrew McFarlane Holt is managing The Mill’s office lettings. Andrew said: “Simon’s ingenuity here is exemplary and he has created exciting opportunities for the Leicestershire small business community; it’s definitely a lesson for landlords with similar premises. Occupiers in each of The Mill’s fully serviced offices can work independently but also meet likeminded professionals on their doorstep. With less than half the units remaining, we encourage those struggling to work productively from home to book an appointment and consider making a move to The Mill.”

Office space at The Mill starts from 150 sq ft and is available immediately. Contact Andrew McFarlane Holt on 01455 559030 to arrange a viewing.
