Less than six months after the opening of Northern Gateway Enterprise Centre, Chesterfield has officially opened its second office block.
Just walking distance from Elder Way, One Waterside Place is a brand new ‘Grade A’ six storey office development, giving the town much-needed large floorplate office space.
Officially opened on Thursday 26 January by Chesterfield Borough Council. Sitting next to the town’s train station, the impressive building has already become a striking new feature of the local skyline and drawn investment to the town.
Both BHP and Varley have each taken an entire floor within One Waterside Place.
BHP Partner Dominic Staniforth said: “The new office is an excellent space that provides first-class facilities for our team, with an array of restaurants, cafés and shops close by. I know I can speak on behalf of my Chesterfield colleagues when I say that we’re proud to be the first tenants in such a prestigious building and we look forward to being in our new home for many years to come.”
While Northern Gateway Enterprise Centre provides office suites for new and expanding businesses, One Waterside Place provides bespoke office accommodation for established businesses – offering a modern, high-quality base for ambitious companies looking to grow and thrive in a central and well-connected location. Both office blocks are recognised for their central location and have proved popular with tenants. The Enterprise Centre already boasts more than 50% occupancy.
One Waterside Place sits within the Basin Square neighbourhood of the £340million Chesterfield Waterside regeneration scheme – one of the UK’s largest regeneration schemes. Once complete, Basin Square will also comprise 320 Built-to-Rent apartments, a 400-space multi-storey car park and a 140-bed hotel.
House builder Avant Homes is already on site building 177 two, three and four bedroom homes in the Waterside Quarter. The homes went on sale in 2020 and, already, the house builder is reporting that 90% have been sold.
Both the Enterprise Centre and One Waterside Place have been funded by Chesterfield Borough Council.
Councillor Tricia Gilby, leader of Chesterfield Borough Council, who opened One Waterside Place said: “The opening of this new development is a key milestone for the £340 million Chesterfield Waterside regeneration project. One Waterside Place represents our ambition to build a thriving borough and create new opportunities for our residents.”
With more and more people choosing to live, work and invest in Chesterfield, Elder Way offers a premium address and an excellent opportunity for entrepreneurs to capitalise on the town’s growth.
The development offers seven street-level retail units with glazed frontages, which are now complete and ready for tenants. Ranging in size from 1,420 sq.ft to 16,076 sq.ft, the units offer prospective tenants a flexible and blank canvas for high street business in a prominent location.
