Sustainability at the heart of Southampton’s major office redevelopment
Tuesday June 22nd, 2021
Southampton City Centre’s first offices targeting BREEAM Excellent have been unveiled at Twenty3, Brunswick Place.
The 64,000 sq. ft. offices will be the only available space of their kind, offering the highest quality sustainable design in the City. The building, located on the corner of Brunswick Place and Dorset Street, is being comprehensively reconfigured and refurbished throughout.
The redesigned building will feature an open and welcoming reception area with new glass frontage opening onto Brunswick Place. There will be a dynamic business lounge with break out spaces for tenants’ exclusive use focusing on wellness and a collaboration area. A fourth floor is being added to create a unique working space and private roof terrace, offering amazing views towards Southampton Water. The basement will have secure cycle storage and EV charging points as well as a dedicated shower block, changing and drying facilities.
Twenty3 will showcase the latest and most efficient systems providing a truly unique opportunity in Southampton. The office space and common parts include highly efficient cooling and heating systems, lighting and contemporary finishes of the highest quality. These will dramatically reduce the operational emissions making the building both cost efficient and environmentally friendly.
Global engineering, architecture and consultancy company Ramboll has pre-let the ground floor at Twenty3, signing a 10-year lease commitment.
CBRE and Vail Williams have been appointed as joint sole agents for Twenty3 Brunswick Place.
CBRE Advisory & Transaction Director Emma Lockey comments: “Twenty3 will be Southampton’s highest specification office development. Achieving BREEAM Excellent certification, will put Twenty3 in the top 10% of buildings for sustainability and it is the only BREEAM Excellent building in Southampton.”
Vail Williams Agency Lead Partner Russell Mogridge added: “This redevelopment will be Southampton’s most iconic office space offering for the 21st Century. With sustainable features throughout, full height glazing coupled with collaborative working areas and exclusive outdoor space, Twenty3 will be a highly sought-after location.”
