Home From Home For Charities
11 April 2009Two charities have become the final tenants in a new office block at Carryduff. The Northern Ireland Music Therapy Trust and the Child Brain Injury Trust, moved from other locations to the new offices at McKibbin House, Eastbank Road.
Letting Agents, Osborne King, said that all 22,000sq ft of office space at the property has now been taken. Another 12,000sq ft of space is being created by the construction of Eastbank House immediately beside McKibbin House. Around 8,000sq ft of that has already been agreed according to Chris Sweeney of Osborne King. He added: "Despite the economic downturn, we are receiving a steady stream of enquiries from interested parties, which proves that demand for quality, high specification office space still exists." The new building is expected to be completed in August this year and a third phase is planned.
