Work has been completed on Unity Square, a Grade A Nottingham office scheme that will be home to HMRC from early 2022.
First announced in 2018, works on the development were carried out by construction services group Bowmer and Kirkland, and has a 25-year-pre-let taken out by HMRC.
The site, designed by Manchester-based architecture company 5 Plus, is set to become one of HMRC’s largest regional offices, hosting over 4,000 colleagues.
Colin Casse, locations programme director at the government body, said: “HMRC has a long-standing presence in Nottingham and the new government hub will be home to our Nottingham regional centre.
“A stunning building, right in the heart of the city, 1 Unity Square will provide a flexible modern working environment that can be adapted as our ways of working develop in the future.”
Peveril Securities and Sladen Estates first purchased the 1.14-hectare site in 2015, with the HMRC hub being forward funded by LGIM Real Assets (Legal and General).
Ralph Jones, MD at Peveril and director at Bowmer and Kirkland, said that the development is “hugely significant for the region” that surrounds the city’s train station.
He added: “With thousands of people set to work in the offices, businesses in the area will benefit from the increased footfall of workers.”
