Helping Trafficmaster relocate to Kents Hill Business Park

Trafficmaster has become the latest high-profile tenant to relocate to the Kents Hill Business Park in Milton Keynes.

The newly refurbished site is proving to be the destination of choice, as occupiers look for something extra.

The transformation of the Kents Hill site into a state of the art business park follows an £11m investment by Circle Property Plc. The newly completed offices continue to interest prime tenants, who are attracted by the contemporary refurbishment and unique campus-style facilities including an on-site health club, food plaza and international hotel and conference centre.

Trafficmaster Ltd, trading as Teletrac Navman, is the latest company to choose Kents Hill Business Park, leasing the entire 13,500 sq ft first floor of the K1 building to relocate its UK operations. Formerly known as Trafficmaster in the UK, Teletrac Navman is a global Telematics Leader. The company’s award-winning navigation feature Smartnav is supported 24/7 by a team that’s now based at its new Kents Hill headquarters.

Jonathan Whittle of Louch Shacklock & Partners, the letting agent who represented Circle Property plc. commented: “We are delighted to welcome Trafficmaster to Kents Hill. The level of investment here has created a new standard for business park accommodation in Milton Keynes.”

Kents Hill Business Park

The 2nd and final phase in the development of Kents Hill Business Park will see the completion of a sister building, called K2, in Spring 2016. The K2 building is already attracting advanced interest from tenants from the UK and Europe, offering tenants a further 40,000 sq ft of grade A office space, completed to the same exacting standards as it’s K1 sibling.

Global Software Company moves to Bank House Office Space, in Milton Keynes

Louch Shacklock & Partners has successfully completed the letting of 13,870 sq ft of office space at Bank House, Central Milton Keynes.

Built in 1988, Bank House is a prominent office building at the corner of Midsummer Boulevard and Upper Second Street, Central Milton Keynes, featuring 45,000 sq ft over three floors. The ground floor had been completely refurbished by the landlord Hermes Real Estate, including a new air-conditioning system, suspended ceilings, lighting and full redecoration.

The refurbished office space will be home to Xero UK Ltd, the UK subsidiary of an accountancy software company with global head offices in New Zealand. Xero had established a presence in Milton Keynes within a serviced office centre, but successful growth of the business in the UK and Europe has prompted the move to new office premises at Bank House.

As another global company brings further investment and jobs into the Milton Keynes economy, Jonathan Whittle of Louch Shacklock said: “We are very pleased to complete the letting of the Bank House office space. We faced strong competition, but the quality of the offices and their location on Midsummer Boulevard were key factors in attracting Xero. This is great news for Milton Keynes”.

Louch Shacklock has now been instructed to market 15,670 sq ft of first floor offices at Bank House. A comprehensive refurbishment programme will commence over the next few months, and is expected to be completed in early 2015.

Investment Sale Completed

Carters Yard Aerial View

Louch Shacklock and Partners LLP are proud to announce the investment sale of 24 business units at Carters Yard, Kiln Farm, Milton Keynes.

Acting on behalf of Kindale LLP, a sale of the investment was secured within 3 months of commencement of marketing at a price close to the quoting of £2,350,000. Graham Young, partner at Louch Shacklock commented, “ this transaction is proof the Milton Keynes commercial property market continues to outperform other regional centres in respect of price achieved and quick turnaround.”

The success of Carters Yard is also attributable to the proactive management by Kindale LLP who themselves purchased the scheme only 18 months ago where void levels were in excess of 35% and the prospects for re-letting were slim. With the adoption of an aggressive refurbishment programme of vacant units and flexible approach to lettings together with the re-gearing of existing tenancies, both the Landlord and their agents were able to secure 14 new leases and achieve a near 100% occupancy prior to the sale.

Louch Shacklock have subsequently been appointed as sole letting agents by the new owners , UK Property Central Fund. For further information on availability at Carters Yard or if you require any professional advice regarding investments in Milton Keynes or nationally please contact our team.

David Louch of Louch Shacklock and Partner comments: “With strength in the Milton Keynes marketplace and UK wide coverage for corporate clients we have reacted quickly to emerging market opportunities to produce effective results for our clients. Whilst in some sectors the economic climate continues to be challenging, there are clear signs of recovery in others, notably for industrial/logistics occupiers where there is an increasing shortage of better quality buildings in the best locations.

There are good prospects for continued progress in the level of transactions as we enter in 2013 and emerging opportunities for new development.”
