A new shared serviced office development has opened in the heart of Newry City Centre. Following a £1m redevelopment project to the former sporting goods shop, Smyth’s, Granite Exchange will offer both serviced offices and meeting rooms from its Kildare Street base.
Jonathan McKeown, Owner of Granite Exchange, commented “We wanted to create a place where the offices are of a very high specification and professional in every way so as to attract both new and existing businesses looking for a prime location in Newry.
“We have completely refurbished the building. Significant investment has gone into ensuring that every room has high speed internet and wi-fi, automatic lighting, air-conditioning and key fob entry system. Whilst the building also has modern shower facilities and two fully fitted kitchens.
“Our vision is to make paying for office accommodation as simple as possible so the inclusive monthly fee covers a great many items that are often over looked when an organisation has to look after a building themselves. Most expensive of which is a dedicated reception team. We look after everything so the businesses who locate here, can get on with growing their business without having to think about anything else”.
Newly appointed Manager, Colleen O’Hare is very much looking forward to the challenge of bringing the vision for Granite Exchange to fruition. “As soon as anyone walks through the door of Granite Exchange they are overwhelmed by the quality of the fit-out and the professional image of the premises. I feel sure that the clients of the businesses who locate here will be similarly impressed which will have an added benefit for our residents”.
Granite Exchange has a range of furnished office sizes available from 1-3 person office suites to co-working office spaces, perfect for a team workspace or one-person use. Meeting rooms, hosting up to 10 people, are also available for hire.
The first residents of Granite Exchange are Newry Chamber of Commerce and Trade Limited. Their Chief-Executive, Mary Meehan explained why the Chamber chose the premises for their new home. “Granite Exchange offers Newry Chamber a city centre location in high spec, affordable, modern premises. We wish Jonathan and his team every success in securing new tenants to the centre of Newry and thank him for his continued commitment to investing in Newry”.
