Digital influx sees office space hit capacity

Middlesbrough's booming digital sector has led to one of the town's premier office spaces hitting maximum capacity.

The demand for high quality office space is continuing to rise with the Boho 5 building welcoming 12 new companies in the past 12 months and hitting 95% capacity, with two additional companies set to move in the coming weeks bringing the building to full occupancy.

Boho tenants are a mix of ambitious start-ups along with relocations and expansions choosing Middlesbrough in which to grow.

Earlier this year plans were unveiled for Boho 8 which  will be part of the £45 million first phase of expansion plans for the Boho Zone, creating a digital campus with around 115,000 sq ft of prime business accommodation and a complementary residential offer delivered by Thirteen Group.  
 
With this growing demand in mind, the new Boho 8 building, which will see 10,000 sq ft of bespoke modular office space delivered in autumn 2020, will come as a welcome addition to the area.

One of the latest tenants into the Boho Zone in Boho 5 is Radical Forge, a small but rapidly expanding company at the forefront of video game technology.

Bruce Slater from Radical Forge said: "With the rapid rate that digital companies in the Boho Zone are growing at, the Boho 8 expansion is vital to keep companies and staff in the area.

"Radical Forge is not the only company that's growing and needs the space to expand. Boho 5 has a great mix of companies in the building but now lacks expansion space for business that are seeing growth."
