KWB was instructed to advise on the development – and also to market the available space – of Abbey Park, a new Grade ‘A’ office development of five buildings within a unique 60-acre landscaped Grade 2 listed parkland setting.
This, the second phase of construction, which KWB has advised on, will see the construction of an initial 36,177 sq ft office building, to be part of an eventual total offering in excess of 128,000 sq ft of offices on the site.
Phase 1 of Abbey Park included head offices for AGCO (formerly Massey Ferguson) and The British Horse Society.
This substantial property development, which offers a specification that meets the needs of the modern occupier, is well suited to the market in this area and at this time. Warwickshire is popular with occupiers that have international, national and regional concerns and operations – due to its central location and its proximity to the M40 and an array of transport links.
With our understanding of the site, its location and the market, we were able to provide invaluable information and insight on the size, design, and specification of the build, as well as advising on the rental expectations.
The marketing of this new build opportunity, which KWB has helped to package, offers an ‘oven ready’ solution – giving assurance to any interested parties that design, planning, and procurement are in place. This means these elements do not represent any timescale or viability concerns.
