French software company moves into Sheffield’s City Gate offices

A French software company is the latest tenant to secure office space at Sheffield’s City Gate premises, Commercial Property Partners (CCP) has said.

Dassault Systèmes – a subsidiary of French company Dassault Group – has committed to a five-year lease at the office block.

Previously based on Peel Street, Broomhill, the move sees the business take on a 3,000 sq ft office, joining current tenants including ARM Plc, OCLS, Hallam Medical and digital group Zoo.

“Increasingly, we are seeing companies spanning the professional service, technology and creative industries committing to long-term leases that secure their city centre presence for the foreseeable; a trend which highlights a growing confidence in Sheffield as a good location in which to do business,” said Rob Darrington, Partner at CPP.

“City Gate has proved particularly popular with such organisations given its central location; providing good access to city centre facilities, strong public transport links, as well as excellent connectivity to major road networks.

“It is also a prime example of the Grade A offering of the office space available in Sheffield, and its generous, secure car park facility has been well received by potential tenants.”

Joint Agent Peter Whitely added: “Interest in the two, final remaining floors is gathering pace, and we are in active discussions with a number of business interested in securing the space.”

CPP and Knight Frank acted on behalf of the Landlord and Colliers International acted on behalf of the Tenant.
