Cirencester Office Park comprises three self-contained buildings – the first phase of which is already let in its entirety to the Fosseway Housing Association. Phase 2 offers 25,873 sq ft in total over three floors and phase 3 – 13,254 sq ft in all, over two floors. Two units are already let in phase 2 to Smiths Gore and AimTeq. Other units are available from 1,300 sq ft up to 5,500 sq ft or multiples of these of course. A sound commercial proposition for occupiers or investors – the buildings are available on a virtual freehold basis for those looking to purchase their own offices – the excellent accommodation, combined with generous on-site parking and the option of flexible lease terms is seeing high levels of interest in this exciting new office space.
Cirencester is a growing Cotswold town with a population of 20,000, but is already the home of a number of sizeable businesses including Mitsubishi Motors, specialist healthcare company the Corin Group , marketing company Brann, financial advisers St. James’s Place and software distributors Comstor. It’s home to the Royal Agricultural College, literally down the road from The Prince of Wales home at Highgrove and close to a number of other Royal residences, perhaps highlighting the desirability of this part of the country.
Kemble station is 3 miles away with links to Paddington in just 75 minutes and to Swindon and Cheltenham – both just 20 minutes away by rail. The still new A417/A419 links the M5 near Gloucester with the M4 near Swindon, confirming Cirencester’s enviable position in the beautiful Cotswold countryside, yet easily accessible from most parts of the country. Existing businesses have noted the high quality of employees available to companies locating in the town, from the town and the myriad of picturesque villages in close proximity to the town itself.
Locally based Alder King partner, Simon Kingsley, says these are exceptional offices in a prime location: “These offices look wonderful from the outside – with their warm, honey coloured Cotswold stone facades – but they are even better when you get inside them and see what they have to offer. Fully accessible raised floors, suspended ceilings with integral Category 2 lighting, these offices will provide a prestige home for anyone looking to take a larger space or for companies looking to relocate to an exceptional new location that offers excellent living options for team members moving with their company to the new location.”
That’s certainly the view of the first two companies to move into Phase two of the development. David Stout a partner of Smiths Gore and Arthur Jupp of AimTeq and their colleagues are settling in to their new surroundings: “It’s an excellent location for us and we’re delighted with our new home,” said David Stout. “We have twenty offices around the UK and as specialists in rural property management this is the right place to be.”
“And it’s clear this will develop into a prime business location,” agrees Arthur Jupp, “We’ve moved from another site in the town to take advantage of this excellent location for our growing business. Cirencester is a thriving business location – there are lots of companies like us, expanding into new office locations or having new HQs built in the town – it’s an exciting time to be part of the growth here.”
