Landlord Euranglo Cardiff Ltd was advised in both deals by Knight Frank.
Mark Sutton, office agency partner at Knight Frank in Cardiff, said: "South Gate House has seen a flurry of activity in recent months and these most recent tenant expansions have built on the success in the building over the last two years where we have transacted almost 18,000 sq ft in 6 deals.
