Opportunities to take high quality office space in Redditch are always rare, and with current office vacancy rates running at under 5%, it’s tougher still.
However, a modern two-storey 10,000 sq ft office building has come onto the market, on Ravensbank Business Park, located in an established commercial area close to the town’s main link road to the M42. The M42 provides access to the M40, M5, M6 and Midlands motorway network. Redditch railway station is situated within the town centre, less than 3 miles away, and provides a direct service to Birmingham New Street with journey times of approximately 35 minutes.
Ravens Court at 1 Hedera Road has undergone a full office refurbishment by KWB Workplace, the office design, fit out and move management team at KWB Birmingham commercial property agents. The semi-detached office building has a welcoming new reception area, the latest daylight-sensing LED lighting, VRV air conditioning, a landscaped entrance and generous parking allocation of 50 spaces.
Malcolm Jones, head of office agency for KWB, says the high demand for office space in Redditch, coupled with the very low availability rate, meant there had already been interest from local companies looking to relocate – even before the office refurbishment was completed.
“I can understand why this building is attracting so much attention, because it would be ideal as a head office for a regional business wanting to move into top-notch office space in Redditch with excellent connectivity. It ticks all the boxes for ambitious and image-conscious local companies, and there’s even gated access to the business park.
“Saying that, in terms of both location and quality of space, I also wouldn’t be surprised to hear from national organisations looking for a regional HQ to serve a wider area, along the M42 corridor, where there is also a serious shortage of office space.”
