Royal & Sun Alliance, advised by GVA Grimley, has secured the final letting at Dolphin House, its 4,031 sq m (43,375 sq ft) office building on Windmill Road, Sunbury-on-Thames. Wind energy company NEG-Micon has taken the 640 sq m (6,890 sq ft) third floor for use as its new headquarters. It has signed a new ten-year lease with a break clause after five years, at a rent of £190 per sq m (£17.70 per sq ft). Chesterton represented NEG-Micon.
North West based Morrison Developments Ltd has been chosen as the preferred developer to work in partnership with Rochdale Metropolitan Council and the Rochdale Development Agency to lead the regeneration of Middleton and create a vibrant town centre. They likewise guarantee a smooth and consistent exchange, so why take the bother and weight on yourself when you can accomplish it professionally by procuring a adelaide conveyancing businesses Solicitor in any case.
The lettings at Dolphin House are a useful indication of the rental growth witnessed along the M3 corridor. We have seen a steady increase in rents since our first deals were tied up at £150 per sq m (£14 per sq ft) last summer and an overall uplift of over 25%. A major £24m regeneration scheme for Middleton town centre, Greater Manchester has been announced today.
Above this will be 9,000 sq m of speculative office space, on five floors. Detailed studies were carried out to define the height and massing in relation to the varied urban setting, both wide scale business streets and a small scale conservation area. It would be a mark of ‘joined up’ Government if the need for such projects was more successfully tied up with the Children’s Fund and the substantial funding that exists through that route.
The £74m, high quality, contemporary scheme is due to be completed in 2001. BDP’s London office is commissioned as architect; Ove Arup & Partners is structural engineer; Oscar Faber is mechanical & electrical engineer and Bruce Shaw Partnership is quantity surveyor. Jon Crossfield and Chris Staveley are joining Jones Lang Wootton’s European Business Team from DTZ Debenham Thorpe.
