Our office space in Cargo Fleet, Boho Zero and The Co-operative Buildings is equipped with art galleries, bistros and state of the art refurbishments with suites that can be designed bespoke to your needs.

Not only is Tees Valley now becoming the home of Treasury North, but Teesside is also getting its very own Freeport – which is huge news for the region. Spanning a huge 4,500 acres, the Freeport is set to be the largest in the UK and is situated very near to our Boho Zero and Cargo Fleet Offices.
Freeports can enhance trade and investment across the UK, boost growth and the number of high-skilled jobs and increase innovation in port regions. Research found that the Freeport within the Tees Valley, could create up to 32,000 jobs and add £2billion to the regional economy.
It’s highly likely that many well-known businesses will soon flock to the region, this in turn will create new opportunities for local businesses to connect with big brands, including enhanced tender and bid openings.

We are looking forward to opening the doors of the gallery soon after what has been a very long time in lockdown with the first exhibition of 2021:
“Instrumental Art” by Photographic Artist David Griffiths.
David Griffiths is a photographic artist based in Teesside. His Digital artworks are a blend of true representation and stylistic interpretation.
David explores the complex aspects of perspectives and dimension within his work, experimenting with vibrant and dynamic colours, subtle use of light, shadow and reflections and a variety of mediums, to create intriguing mixed media pieces.
His multi-dimensional pieces are inspired by geometric forms and dynamic shapes found within nature and architecture and he explores pattern, colour and texture to create pieces that merge between reality and abstraction.
The onsite bistro – Iron Co Coffee House are preparing to reopen for takeaways in a couple of weeks time. The exhibition will not officially be open as a physical show for gatherings, but artwork can be viewed whilst grabbing yourself a cuppa or bite to eat. Please stick to government guidelines of social distancing and face masks.

Award-winning commercial property firm Python Properties has announced it is celebrating a record year for its prestigious Tees Valley portfolio, following a major investment and enhancement project.
The Middlesbrough-based company has achieved lettings of 60,000 sq ft of office space in the last year and now averages an 85% occupancy rate within its landmark buildings, with some properties at full capacity, thanks to a £500,000 investment.
The enhancement campaign to revitalise four of its landmark buildings in Middlesbrough has focused on refurbishing existing communal areas, and installing new facilities, services and business zones. In addition to installing break-out spaces, conference and meeting rooms into the properties, which already include art galleries, bistros and manned receptions.
The buildings included in the project were Cargo Fleet Offices, The Co-operative Building and Victoria House; with work shortly to start at Royal Middlehaven House.
Python Properties partner, Peter Broome, said: “We are delighted to have welcomed so many new tenants to our properties within the last year. Our commercial property portfolio is now 85% occupied and business communities within the buildings are thriving. We believe it is of paramount importance to invest in the future of the buildings and ensure our tenants have state-of-the-art environments and facilities to help them achieve their own business objectives.”
“As a Middlesbrough-based firm we have noticed a significant rise in the request for office space in the Tees Valley. Business owners are strategically moving their companies to the region to benefit from the area’s economic and visual rebirth, thanks to private and public investment.”
Renowned for its restoration and regeneration ethos, Python Properties has invested more than £25 million pounds in commercial and residential estate in the North throughout its 20-year history.
