RO has leased 2,443 sq ft of space to Next Step Care Management, a nationwide organisation offering alternative residential accommodation to young people, on a 10 year lease. A P Xpress, a design company supplying printed labels to the fashion industry, has taken a further 3,617 sq ft of space on a 10 year lease.

Katherine House is a 3 storey self-contained office building, offering allocated parking for up to 18 cars. It is conveniently located near Potters Bar railway station which provides a 30 minute service direct to London Kings Cross Station.

Richard Bourne, head of RO Real Estate, said: “We are pleased to have secured full occupancy at Katherine House. These lettings demonstrate the momentum across our portfolio and the intensity we strive to put into all our asset management activity. The proximity to the mainline station and the availability of parking were key factors.”
