New tenants for revamped central Lincoln offices

Revamp: The first letting for the recently-refurbished Lincoln House on Newland Street has been secured.

A chartered surveyor firm has secured the first letting for the recently-refurbished Lincoln House on Newland Street.

Hodgson Elkington completed the city landmark’s first lease following its six figure refurbishment from Lindum Group.

The four-storey office building on the corner of Newland and Orchard Street was built in the 1960s for the National Deposit Friendly Society and was occupied, until last year, by Lincolnshire County Council.

The first lease for Lincoln House has gone to Framework Housing Association who will occupy the ground and first floor of the building. Two suites of 2,000 sq ft each remain available on the 2nd and 3rd floors.

The refurbished property is owned by Lincoln-based investment company and property developer Taylor Lindsey Limited.

Hodgson Elkington LLP Partner, Dan Race, said: “We are very pleased to have secured the first letting in this building and wish Framework well for their relocation.”

“This takes to over 50,000 sq ft the amount of office space we have let or sold in Lincoln in recent months, a substantial improvement on recent years and a very encouraging sign.”
