Refurbishment completes at Hull’s Cherry Tree Court

FI Real Estate Management (FIREM) has completed a £1.7m refurbishment programme of the ground and first floors of Cherry Tree Court in Hull, with a new phase of works underway to improve the second floor of the former HMRC building.

The completed programme saw a CAT A refurb of the current office areas, including the creation of an open plan layout, installation of new carpets and a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, as well as exposed sprayed ceiling. The communal areas of the 35,000 sq ft building were also renovated with a new welcoming area and lobby, shower facilities, cycle store, four storage garages and 46 car parking spaces.

The next phase of works has started on the second floor of the three-storey building and is due to complete in November 2022. FIREM’s investment in Cherry Tree Court aims to provide high quality office space in the city and to create a new business community. 

Located in the heart of Hull City Centre and close to Hull Paragon station, Cherry Tree Court currently offers up to 22,828 sq ft of refurbished office space and includes FIREM’s dedicated serviced office provider, FigFlex Offices, which occupies more than 6,000 sq ft of the ground floor. 

FigFlex Hull provides sleek professional serviced offices, as well as inspiring coworking and breakout areas. FigFlex is driven by a dedicated, experienced centre management team, on hand to assist with any office-related matters. 

Formerly home to the HMRC and one of the most prominent office buildings in Hull City Centre, Cherry Tree Court’s first tenant to ‘come aboard’ prior to the refurbishment was Hull Trains, with the rail operator currently taking up 5,000 sq ft of grade A office space on the ground floor.

Tim Knowles, founder and Managing Director of FIREM, commented: “This investment in Cherry Tree Court enables us to provide high quality office space for local businesses in Hull. Together with FigFlex Offices’ offering, we can cater to businesses of all sizes and we hope to create a thriving community where professionals can mix with those from other industries and expand their own services. Its prime location also provides the perfect commute and convenient access to the city centre. 

“Cherry Tree Court is part of our commitment to continue to invest in Hull and the wider area, and with more businesses taking up space in the building, it will help us to provide a boost to the local economy and offer more opportunities for local people.”
