Cooke & Arkwright’s Business Space team have let a prominent showroom building off Newport Road to fast-growing independent clothing and footwear designer brand, Other Clothing UK Ltd. The cutting-edge menswear and urban lifestyle brand has taken almost 7,600 sq ft at Units 1 and 2 in Dominions Way Business Park, formerly occupied by Mandarin Stone.

Other Clothing, which also has a flagship store in the centre of Cardiff at 15-17 High Street Arcade will use the new premises as a creative studio-lab where it will develop new styles including the introduction of its British-made footwear. Nearby occupiers include Comet, Argus, Mothercare and Dunelm.

Tim Lawley, Associate with Cooke & Arkwright said, “The building occupies an excellent position visible from Newport Road and fronting to the main spine road. It perfectly suited the team at Other, providing them with the space to develop their original and innovative fashion collections.

“It's great to see a local company doing well and requiring new premises to assist its expansion. We wish them every success with their future development.”

Other Clothing has enjoyed steady growth since its inception in Ystrad Mynach in 2012 by Nicolas and Mia Davey.

Blake Morgan committed to 29,000 sq ft office in the exciting Central Square development. We retained Ben Bolton and his team some time ago to advise and appraise options in the lead up to this significant move of our Cardiff Office. The business is extremely pleased with the outcome and Ben's negotiations and attention to detail was a major part to this.
