Disposal of a 236,000 sq ft multi-let commercial business park
Our grasp of shifting supply, demand and rents mean we spot trends early to ensure you deliver what the local occupier market wants at the right time.
This deep understanding of the local marketplace gives us an instinctive feel for what works well in our local markets’ research clusters, train station city gateways and established edge-of-city and out-of-town science parks.
We’ll run accurate appraisals on all the options, providing a steer on rents, exit yields, the voids you need to build in, how to best structure and finance the deal and the right mix of uses to maximise values. Finally, we will set up your leasing strategy and seamlessly secure pre-lets on the best possible terms.
