Skin care specialist SkinSpaceUK is the third company to have secured a place in the Gresham Building and to take over one of the commercial units in Leicester’s newest aparthotel project.
Located on the corner of Market Street and Belvoir Street in Leicester, The Gresham is a £ 17 million renovation of the iconic Fenwick retail store.
The new development houses a shared office and workplace, four commercial units on two levels and a stylish, high-quality 121-room aparthotel that opened earlier this month.
SkinSpaceUK will move to Unit One on Market Street in early 2022, adding an eighth store to its growing portfolio of boutique clinics across the UK.
CEO Chris Kerrison said, “SkinSpaceUK is an expanding company and we have been looking for strategic locations that match the quality we want and our core target market. The Gresham was the ideal location for our newest clinic.
“Our skin care business will add a new dimension to Leicester. We offer you a comprehensive, professional, clinic-based service provided by experienced doctors at affordable prices. We are very much looking forward to opening our doors to customers in the New Year. “
The Gresham unit deal was secured through commercial real estate agent Innes England.
Deputy Director Joe Reilly said, “Market Street and the surrounding area have a great downtown location, which is undergoing significant renovation and development. There have been many transactions recently that have brought a variety of different business offerings to the region in much more than just hospitality. It’s an exciting time that I believe will transform this part of Leicester back into the thriving area it was a few years ago in the coming months.
“There is great interest in the three remaining units from The Gresham, but are currently still available.”
Mark Copson, Director of The Gresham, said, “We are excited to welcome another strategic partner to The Gresham to join our existing commercial tenants: restaurant partner Black Iron Social; and Leicester City Council, who have long rented the flexible co-working space and conference facilities.
“SkinSpaceUK is a company that perfectly complements The Gresham and will also be a unique and exciting addition to Market Street and Leicester. I am excited to work with Chris and his team and look forward to seeing the success of his newest clinic.
“The demand for commercial space in Marktstrasse after challenging times is impressive and we are confident that we will soon be able to acquire high-quality tenants for the last three units in order to further increase the liveliness of the region.”
