BBRE wins Top National Award from British Council For Offices CONCORDIA WORKS, LEEDS

The British Council for Offices (BCO) has named Boultbee Brooks Real Estate’s Concordia Works in Leeds the best national office development up to 1,500 sq m.  The property, where Savills is instructed as letting agent, was also crowned winner in this size category for the North of England, North Wales and Northern Ireland region.

Concordia Works, which dates back to the early 20th Century, offers 13,922 sq ft (1,294 sq m) of warehouse-style office space.  Tenants include Caldero Limited, Yonder Consulting and Bark & Bite.  Original features such as exposed brickwork, cast iron beams and columns were maintained throughout during a major refurbishment, while modern facilities including cycle storage and showers were added.

The building is located on the southern fringe of Leeds city centre, adjacent to the urban garden recently created in Sovereign Square and numerous restaurants, coffee shops and bars.  Leeds Station and the city’s main retail pitch are both a short walk away.

BCO judges commented: “This building could so easily have slipped into obscurity, but it has been restored and revived and is now a vibrant part of 21st Century Leeds.”

Paul Fairhurst, head of Savills Leeds, comments:  “The combination of quirky period features, high spec office space and a central location at Concordia Works is proving attractive to a wide range of occupiers.  The property is truly a one off and certainly deserving of this prestigious accolade.”

Boultbee Brooks Refurbish Hatton Wall

13 July 2017 (Hereford and London) – Boultbee Brooks Real Estate (BBRE) the UK-based real estate investor and developer, has completed the refurbishment and construction of 22 Hatton Wall, Black Bull Yard and 20 Hatton Wall in the heart of Clerkenwell. 22 Hatton Wall contains 5 floors of 24,466 sq. ft. premium industrial office space with a brand new reception area; 20 Hatton Wall is a rare collective of 7 elevated apartments with a shared lift that connects apartment floors with the lobby. The buildings overlook a newly landscaped courtyard and both the offices and the apartments have private entrances that have been carefully designed and lead directly onto Hatton Wall.

The development is located, in the heart of London’s culture-rich and cosmopolitan area of Clerkenwell where old and new London seamlessly entwine. Black Bull Yard is located in Hatton Wall and connects directly to the street that hosts a long established food market; the area has long been associated with craft, design and media attracting a population of young vibrant creatives. This coupled with the anticipated arrival of the Crossrail in Farringdon in 2018 has further indubitably formalised Clerkenwell as one of the capital’s most desirable residential areas.

BBRE has managed to transform the Victorian warehouse into a spectacular new development whilst carefully preserving the brick façade of the original property and maintaining a visual connection to the historical context of the area. The offices offer high quality flexible floor plates with exposed ceilings services, exposed brickwork and excellent natural light. The flats offer bright expansive living areas including floor to ceiling windows, interior architecture that is characterised by bold, clean lines and complimented by high quality fittings and finishes in neutral tones.

 

BBRE Managing Director, Clive Boultbee-Brooks said:

“A huge amount of work has gone into the design and construction of the refurbished property, led by GPAD who were the architect for the project. We are delighted with the final result, and are honoured to have contributed to providing more office and living space that is reflective of the craft and design atmosphere of the Clerkenwell district.

Boultbee Brooks Lands Salmon at Clarendon Works, Watford

Boultbee Brooks Real Estate (BBRE), advised jointly by Savills and JLL, has pre-let Clarendon Works (36 Clarendon Road), the first speculatively developed office scheme in Watford town centre for 15 years.

Salmon Ltd, the global digital ecommerce consultancy part of the WPP marketing communications group, has agreed a new 15 year lease for the entire 30,000 sq ft (2,787 sq m) building due for completion in Q1 2018. The building located in the heart of Watford’s commercial town centre will comprise six storeys of contemporary exposed service office accommodation benefiting from a prominent corner position on Clarendon Road.

Andrew Willcock, director in the South East office agency team at Savills, comments: “The fact that Clarendon Works has been let so soon after commencement of the construction is both testament to the quality of the development proposed and the ongoing popularity of Watford as a corporate office location. We hope that this continued confidence will act as a catalyst for further commercial development in the town centre that boasts outstanding credentials in terms of connectivity to Central London and a range of retail and leisure amenities”

Alex Aitchison, Development Director at Boultbee Brooks Real Estate, adds: “Our strategy is to speculatively develop new exciting workspace in markets with limited supply, significant lease events and increasingly attractive market characteristics and Clarendon Works is a perfect example of this. As a result, we have been able to secure, this pre-let to Salmon, a top international business. Offering unique contemporary office accommodation is fundamental to attracting quality occupiers and we continue to actively seek similar opportunities across greater London and the regions”

Neil Stewart, Chief Executive Office of Salmon, adds: “Salmon is a global company, but our roots are in Watford where we have been based for 25 years. Our business is rapidly expanding and we wanted a new headquarters in Watford which will give both the right impression to our clients and team but also be close to Watford Junction station. We are delighted to take the lease on Clarendon Works and we look forward to moving into our new headquarters in 2018.
