Codex has renewed its commitment to digital video and gaming hotspot Royal Leamington Spa, signing a lease renewal for a further six years at Boundary Real Estate Partners’ (Boundary) Regent Square House.
The TV, film and video production company, which employs high-performance digital production workflow tools for independent films, Hollywood motion pictures, commercial and TV productions worldwide, has extended its original five-year lease for a further six years at the landmark Regent Square House, prominently situated fronting Regent Street and the Parade in Leamington Spa’s town centre.
The building’s central location set’s its occupiers in a vibrant, mixed-use environment, with access to a range of business, retail and leisure facilities including the Royal Priors Shopping Centre. Centrally located, Leamington Spa is easily accessible by road, rail, and air.
Acquired by Boundary in Q3 2021, Regent Square House offers 20,000 sq ft of high-quality office space over three floors above the ground floor retail space. The team has invested further in the building, refurbishing the common parts of the building to add to the attraction of the office space, which provides a large, open layout, with excellent natural light to inspire creativity and teamwork.
Among its occupiers is Pixel Toys, which has spent almost a decade pushing the capabilities of mobile and VR gaming. The award-winning company has developed games such as Warhammer, Drop Dead and GunFinger, and chose Regent Square House’s open-plan, contemporary office space to allow their team to easily collaborate across all disciplines, calling it a ‘cool, creative space’.
Charlie Walker of Boundary says: “Royal Leamington Spa has become one of the UK’s largest digital production and gaming industry hubs, historically starting with Codemasters (now owned by EA) who moved to the outskirts of Leamington as their business grew and are still headquartered here today. More recently, Facebook owner Meta and Sumo Group have taken space in the town centre.
What these companies are looking for is quality offices, with large floorplates in the centre of town, which is quite hard to come by, and we are delighted to be able to offer this space at Regent Square House and invest in a place where companies and their staff want to be.”
