NGB makes Newcastle move

Agent Naylors Gavin Black is to relocate to the second floor of One Strawberry Lane, developed by the Home Group close to St James’ Park.

The firm said it has committed to the 10-year lease to help meet its sustainability goals, better support the wellbeing of its 38-strong team, improve client meeting provision, and attract and retain future talent.

Knight Frank and Savills advised Home Group.

The 3,000 sq ft. office at the high-spec, newly-built 70,000 sq ft office building benefits from onsite amenities including collaborative and social spaces, a café, cycle storage and showers.

NGB is currently based at Hadrian House in Higham Place.

The firm has grown in recent years, with its asset management department now managing more than 3.5m sq ft of UK commercial space, for clients including Buccleuch, Cable Properties & Investment, and Europark.

The firm is part of the Commercial Property Network which gives its clients national reach as part of an affiliation with 30 other independent commercial property consultancies across the UK.

Managing partner, Angus White, said: “As a business we are constantly evolving but never faster than in the last few years, post-pandemic.

“The office upgrade is part of our strategy to attract and retain the very best people, reduce our carbon footprint, improve our employee benefits, strengthen business development and boost our reputation as a dynamic, progressive team of professionals who are experts in their fields.”

Partner, Chris Donabie added: “This is a very exciting time for the whole team – the move signals a new era for the firm which is going from strength to strength.”

Home Group itself moved into the top three floors of One Strawberry Lane shortly after its completion in March last year.
