Office rents have shot up an eye-watering 24.3% in a year in Oxfordshire’s world-class research cluster with Bidwells’ latest research highlighting the need to fast-track new office and laboratory space to fulfil the explosion in demand from growing technology companies.
Take up in Cambridge’s office and labs market hit a five-year high in H2 2019 with science and tech occupiers shrugging off last year’s political and economic uncertainty in the race for space in Cambridge’s world class cluster.
Bidwells’ plans for growth in 2020 are largely being driven by the government’s Oxford-Cambridge Arc proposals. Seven new planners and 12 promotions have boosted Bidwells’ award-winning planning team as it continues growing to meet the increase in client interest in the Arc.
People buying or selling a home with Bidwells are set to enjoy ‘the most welcoming visitor experience in Cambridge’ after the 180-year-old property consultancy revealed plans for a new Trumpington home for its estate agency business.
More than 550 science and technology researchers, architects, conservation groups, university vice-chancellors, local councillors and businesses, civil servants and property industry leaders convened at The Francis Crick Institute this week (Nov 26) for our 2019 Oxford-Cambridge Arc Conference in partnership with EG.
