Mourant advised Savills on the deal.Savills is moving into flagship premises in St Peter Port after Mourant assisted in negotiating a long lease for the Guernsey branch of the property business.
Savills has operated from two sites since acquiring competing property agents, Martel Maides, in 2018 and the move to Royal Terrace will bring together the commercial and residential arms of the business under one roof.
A change of use was agreed for the former Urban Kitchen eaterie last year. It covers 456 square metres of prime real estate near a number of the island’s largest private offices.
Laura Bougourd (Picture) was supported in the lease negotiations by Senior Associate Alison Wood, and Guernsey Managing Partner John Lewis said the negotiations proved to be complex but reached a positive conclusion for all parties.
