Michael Jones Commercial Team secures 6,500 sq. ft office letting at Bayside in Worthing

We are delighted to announce that the highly anticipated brand new Bayside Commercial development on Worthing seafront has been leased to ‘ECE’, the largest Architecture and Town Planning practice in Sussex.

As part of the award-winning company’s ongoing expansion plans and its commitment to staff and growing client-base, ECE have signed a 10-year lease and will move from its current location in Goring-by-Sea to the new, state-of-the-art 6,500 sq. ft office space in Worthing, cementing its reputation as the largest practice in the county.

ECE Managing Director Stuart Eatock said:

This move is big for us but it’s also big for Worthing. Bayside is a landmark development for the area – we knew that it would be popular. It’s a gamechanger for the surrounding areas. We are privileged and excited to have played a significant part in its inception and to make Bayside our new home. This is the perfect time for ECE to make the move as we look to attract the very best talent from within the industry and enhance the service offering to our growing client-base. Worthing is a vibrant, opportunistic and forward-thinking town and is fast becoming one of the stand-out locations to do business in Sussex, which is why we are here.”

The mixed use development, which ECE were planning consultants on, will complete in Spring 2021 and ECE’s move completed in Autumn 2021 with approximately 70 staff moving over from their current office location. The new business space being built right now – a pretty rare find in Worthing – occupies the ground floor commercial space on the north side of Bayside Horizon.

Roffey Homes Managing Director, Ben Cheal, always wanted the commercial space to be occupied by a creative, forward looking business at this important entry point into the town and believes that the decision by ECE to move into the gateway development will reap benefits for ECE and the town.

Jon Justice, Associate Director at Michael Jones commented:

This has been an excellent collaborative deal between Roffey Homes, Michael Jones Commercial and ECE Architecture. We had offers from other businesses, but to have ECE as occupiers provides the perfect fit and also demonstrates confidence in the Worthing business space market.

This news comes hot on the heels of other recent success stories in the same area, including the Michael Jones Commercial team being instructed to let Bayside Café which is currently under offer.

    Michael Jones estate agents steered us through a very difficult sale of our house due to difficulties in the chain. If it wasn't for Sandra and her magnificent orchestration of the solicitors and purchasers I have no doubts this sale … More would have collapsed. She and the other staff showed patience, stoicism, professionalism and kindness throughout.Many thanks.
