Shoreham Port has added the serviced business centre Maritime House to its portfolio with a £1.1 million Local Growth Fund contribution from Coast to Capital. The purchase means that Shoreham Port has added an additional 36 tenants and provided further job opportunities locally.
Maritime House offers small to large individual business units giving flexible office rental for an array of business needs from start-ups to well established companies. This project is supporting business investment, creating the conditions for enterprise to flourish whilst also creating 40 new jobs, safeguarding 110 jobs and providing 1,600 square metres of new and refurbished floor space.
The office space is currently undergoing refurbishment which is improving facilities for tenants and will also provide professional meeting areas with views of the port. The project is attracting local businesses and enhancing Shoreham Ports’ trade.
Jonathan Sharrock, Chief Executive at Coast to Capital Said:
“Shoreham Port is a strategic commercial hub and it is vital that we continue to support the already thriving port, ensuring that existing jobs are secured and that the future development and growth of the area is safeguarded. We are delighted to have contributed to the purchase of Maritime House which will ensure that high quality businesses continue to be attracted to the area.”
Donna Raynsford, Building Manager at Maritime House said:
“It’s a really exciting time for Maritime House and for all of us that work here. We’re a small team so it will be great to build relationships with other Port employees to expand our network. I’m looking forward to working for the Port to ensure we provide the best service possible to our tenants.”
Tim Hague, Director of Property & Development at Shoreham Port said:
“We are delighted to add such a well-run and successful business centre to our property portfolio. The addition of Maritime House to our extensive commercial property estate increases the range of accommodation we can offer to local businesses and means we are better equipped to meet the changing needs of our tenant community.”
