Built to the highest standards by Morbaine Property Developers, the Abbey Lane Court development consists of ten individual units of 1,100 – 2,342 sq ft that were offered for sale for own accommodation or as a buy to let investment or on a leasehold basis. Purchasers and tenants have been enticed by the convenient town centre location and the modern facilities which include comfort cooling, suspended ceilings with recessed lighting and generous allocation of dedicated on-site parking.
Mr Luff said the development looked really impressive and that those businesses which had already bought offices on the site were right to put their money in Evesham – a town that had doubled over the last 50 years but which had managed this growth well and had retained its identity. He talked about plans for further growth and added: “I’m optimistic about the future of Evesham.”
Designed by award winning architects BBLB, the low level courtyard scheme is divided into three blocks each housing independent, fully contained, modern B1 office units. Each unit comprises an entrance lobby with a staircase rising to office accommodation at the first floor. All units are designed to be naturally ventilated and to also offer comfort cooling with good quality daylight in the work areas. All but two of the units have now been taken up, indicating the ongoing desirability of the town as a business location, as John Bryce, Partner at regional agents KWB, explained. “Abbey Lane Court offers businesses an exciting opportunity in a town that is developing rapidly and which provides a vibrant place to live and work. There has been significant residential development in the area and, with a growing population both within the town and in the surrounding villages, there’s a high quality, readily available workforce here to meet the needs of companies taking up residence in the units. We’ve been delighted with the level of interest we’ve had in this development and with only two units now remaining, it is clear that there is a very real need for this type of office accommodation in this area.”
Tony Rowland, Commercial Property Partner of Timothy Lea & Griffiths – the local agent for the development – agrees, so much so that the company bought one of the freehold units to accommodate its own expanding Commercial business. Tony said: ”As a traditional market town, Evesham offers a wealth of local amenities including shops – from small independent retailers to large chains, supermarkets, bars and restaurants and Abbey Lane Court is located right in the centre of this. The town is supported by an impressive infrastructure of housing, education and health providers which has attracted a highly skilled workforce to the area and it’s conveniently close to the M5 and M42 motorways as well as other major routes, ensuring easy access to all parts of the country. So the development itself offers businesses a superb new office environment and its ideal location, right in the Heart of England, makes Abbey Lane Court an extremely attractive and desirable proposition.” Harvington Underwriting Limited is another of the businesses which is moving into Abbey Lane Court. Director, Martin Gibbins said: “After 10 years in business in Evesham the time has come for a move to larger premises and it is important to us that our new offices reflected the culture of our growing business. Our new office on Abbey Lane Court will achieve this by providing visitors with a modern, welcoming environment and, because of its location, staff benefit from remaining close to all town centre amenities. The offices provide all the facilities we need to continue running a successful business. In addition, Abbey Lane Court presented an investment opportunity that was too good to miss. We are really looking forward to moving in and inviting our clients into our new premises.”
Other units have been acquired by Harben Recruitment, Fintel Solutions, Paul Stafford, Carousel Marketing and Parkinson Wright Solicitors.
