Honeycomb, Northern Ireland’s only boutique agency specialising in the recruitment of administration and business support professionals, has secured new Grade A office premises in Belfast city centre.

The firm has acquired the fourth floor of The Linenhall on Linenhall St in the city centre. The development is a 10-storey Grade A office block with a basement carpark comprising 10,000 sq ft. The fourth floor covers c.1,800 sq ft.

Mairead Scott, Managing Director at Honeycomb said: “Since our inception in 2017, we have experienced unprecedented demand from the market, and are working with a diverse spectrum of clients, ranging from local SMEs to global corporate giants.

“This office move will allow us to facilitate significant growth internally, and further expand into new sectors and territories. With a high number of contracts wins in the past six months especially, we are on track to double our headcount by the end of 2019.”

David Wright, Director at CBRE commented: “This is fantastic office move for Honeycomb that demonstrates its intent and commitment to continued growth and investment.

“It is also very encouraging for the Belfast office market, as it showcases the demand for high end, good quality office accommodation in Belfast city centre in the 1,500 to 3,000 sq ft bracket.

“Whilst the Belfast office market in Q3 was relatively quiet when compared with the very strong first half of 2018, total take-up for the year to date stands at 644,000 sq ft and we are anticipating a good finish to the year with a number of deals agreed and in legals.”

Laura McCarthy, Senior Asset Manager at Killultagh Estates added: “We are thrilled to secure yet another high-quality tenant in Honeycomb at The Linenhall. They are a welcome addition to the other first-rate occupiers already residing at the development, including CBRE, Chartered Accountants Ireland, Companies House, Cunningham Coates, Malcolm Hollis and John McKee & Sons Solicitors.”
