Wavenet, the UK data, voice and cloud solutions provider, has taken a 10,633 sq ft lease at IM Properties' One Central Boulevard (OCB) in Blythe Valley Park.

One Central Boulevard, which recently underwent a £5m refurbishment, is home to occupiers including Gymshark, Infor, PKF Cooper Parry, Siemens and Zenith.

Stewart Motler operations director from Wavenet said: “Whist we did look at Birmingham city centre and the surrounding business parks initially, their location didn't fit what we were looking for. Blythe was our first choice from the start. As a company that puts pride in our mission to make businesses brilliant it was vitally important for us to find a brilliant location for our business, we believe we have that here.”

IM's Rob Hemus said: “We're breaking the mould of traditional business parks and aiming to create a truly mixed-use community to include commercial, leisure and residential uses, all of which is very attractive to occupiers and talent. Digital and advanced technology companies are a key target sector at BVP and the local demographics and skill base offer a good match for employers."

The recent letting to Wavenet comes at a time of a wider development push on Blythe, which will see some of the first speculatively built offices and commercial space to be delivered on the M42 in a decade.

This includes a 15,000 sq ft office building (FIRST) due to complete in May this year, and Connexion, a 209,000 sq ft campus of high quality logistics and manufacturing space across five buildings, available in the summer.
