Birkett Long still within the foundations of Essex House

Birkett Long staff were delighted to return to their former office at Essex House, but this time as part of the firm’s work on the site with Equagroup. Birkett Long is focused on our local communities and are very proud to be working with a business who give a new purpose to redundant and tired commercial spaces at the same time as providing new homes for and within the community.

Birkett Long have been working with Equagroup on their development work for the last year (Essex House was their third site that they instructed the firm in relation to), but have been working with some of the directors in their personal capacity for 10 years.

On this particular site, the firm are currently dealing with the site set up and the residential plot sales. We are also instructed in relation to the granting long leases over the commercial units on the ground floor.

Katie Lockwood a solicitor in the Commercial Real Estate team said “it has been really exciting to work with Equagroup on this site and to see the changes that have taken place at Essex House. The building has been given a new lease of life and the apartments are finished to a very high standard. It is always a pleasure working with the team at Equagroup and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.”

Nigel Greene, Co-Founder and Director from Equagroup said “Birkett Long have supported my personal portfolio purchases over the past 10 years and during that period I have found their team and service to be outstanding. It has been a pleasure to work with Katie and her colleagues more recently on a number of our commercial transactions and we look forward to continuing the great working relationship with Birkett Long into the future.”

In addition to real estate Birkett Long is also proud to be working with Equagroup within our Commercial team and our Employment team
