Eden 25 Unique Grade A Office Development

Chandler Garvey are delighted to have been instructed by the landlords of the Eden Shopping Centre to market a new 50,000 sq ft headquarters office building.
Eden 25 is to be the re-purposed House of Fraser Department Store in the heart of High Wycombe and the Eden Shopping Centre.

The property will deliver a brand new double height reception with exceptional naming potential with two modern floors of 25,000 sq ft each, around an atrium, with exceptional parking.
High Wycombe sits in the heart of the affluent Chilterns and is the diminant commercial centre in Buckinghamshire, located just 30 miles west of London and 30 miles south east of Oxford.
Benefiting from great access to Junction 4 of the M40, High Wycombe has excellent links to other Thames Valley areas, along with easy access to the M25.
The mainline train station offers services to London Marylebone in just 24 minutes and Oxford in 38 minutes.

Eden 25 will be so much more than just another smart office building. It will distinguish itself through the creative re-use of the House of Fraser building and the huge contribution it will make to the High Wycombe town centre and the Buckinghamshire property market.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) will play an enormous part in attracting headquarters style operators to the town as access to the excellent Chiltern Line service to Lndon and Oxford is first class.

CG Man with a Van

Our Facilities Management department now has a shiny new van!

Richard Muirhead, our Facilities Manager, will use the van for visiting sites and buildings to undertake a wide range of inspections in connection with the many estates and properties we manage across the region.

Facilities management has become an increasingly important part of the property management service we offer. With so much regulation covering property ownership it is essential to undertake regular health and safety inspections, but regular inspections also create strong tenant relationships and looking after the property/estate environment can have positive benefits in terms of the value of the asset.

Keep an eye out for our man with a van. For the first 3 people to take a selfie of themselves with the van, we will make a £50 contribution to the charity of their choice.

James Garvey (my son) has started as a Commercial Agent.  James is starting his career in commercial property, although has experience of the residential lettings market. He will be working with Gerard.  We now have a young Chandler and a young Garvey in the business!

Sharon Jephcott has joined the firm as the Agency Department admin co-ordinator and office receptionist. Sharon has worked for the Guinness Trust for many years and has a high level of experience working with the senior management team and will be a real asset to the business.

Boultbee Brooks sells Amersham office to TEAL Property Holdings

Boultbee Brooks sells Amersham office to TEAL Property Holdings for £5.2m

Boultbee Brooks Real Estate (BBRE), the privately-owned investment and development company, has sold Latimer House, Anglo Office Park, Amersham to TEAL Property Holdings (TPH) for £5.2m (£235 psf). The 2002 built office property, which was formerly occupied by the Bank of Scotland until their lease expiry in November 2017 will become the new corporate headquarters for the UK’s largest independent toy retailer, The Entertainer.

The property, located less than a mile to the east of Amersham Town Centre, provides direct access to Junction 18 of the M25 and junctions 1 and 2 of the M40, and is a short drive from Amersham Rail station and Chalfont & Latimer underground station.

Arranged across two floors and split into two separate wings, Latimer House provides circa 22,000 sq ft of flexible modern accommodation with 83 car spaces offering an excellent parking ratio of 1:268 sq ft.

Lucy Boultbee Brooks of BBRE, said: “Having acquired Latimer House in 2015 as a high yielding office investment with a short unexpired term, our original business plan had been to proactively refurbish the building at the end of the Bank of Scotland lease. We subsequently however received the TPH approach via Chandler Garvey, who we had retained to advise on the local occupational market. It soon became clear they were keen to acquire the property for their own occupation and we were happy to engage with them and agree an earlier than planned exit.”

Robert Cannock of Aurum Real Estate Partners; BBRE’s retained portfolio investment advisor, further commented, “We regularly review opportunities within BBRE’s portfolio and whilst this sale wasn’t planned, we are happy to opportunistically dispose of the asset as it returns equity to the business at a time when we are actively seeking new speculative opportunities throughout the South East and strong regional centres.”

BBRE were advised by Aurum Real Estate and Chandler Garvey.

The Fastest Start to a New Year Ever!

For commercial property consultants, the New Year can sometimes be disappointing, as investors/developers and occupiers in the business community are slow to put plans into action, even if they have a New Year’s resolution to invest/develop/relocate etc.

This January has been noticeably different though, with very clear signs from the start that players in the sector were very keen to move quickly with plans and as a result we have had the busiest January that we can remember.

We have brought more than 20 new instructions to the market, totalling over 50,000 ft² of office, industrial and retail space. We have been appointed by several occupiers to relocate them and have already completed on some notable freehold and investment sales exceeding £10 million.

“I have never been more optimistic about our business, given the many new projects we are involved with and the many large long-term investment and development projects that are now in the planning stage. Despite some obvious uncertainties in the national and global economy, the business community and developers/investors alike seem determined to progress plans with all speed.” Michael Garvey, Managing Director

New Gym for Marlow

Marlow will shortly have a new 5,000 sq ft gym, which will be located on Fieldhouse Lane, Globe Business Park. The site used to be occupied by Cobham Plc, but is now making way for a mix of uses, including a new hotel.

The site is owned by Wycombe District Council and was marketed by us. Martin Somers, Divisional Director commented: “This is another positive step forward for Globe Business Park, bringing in more services for the public and local business, with the hotel to come and another cafe to soon be announced on the Park”.

The new site is let to LeoGym and will be an exclusive state-of-the-art CrossFit & Yoga studio in Marlow, offering Functional Fitness, Yoga, Personal Training, Organic Nutrition and Sports Therapy/ A cutting edge fitness playground with a vibrant community and leading coaches. LeoGym says “working out should be fun, whilst results are guaranteed”. MTV are understood to be making a new programme at the gym.

Howlands Road, Thame Sold

Freehold property, Unit P, Howlands Road, Thame, has recently been sold close to the asking price of £900,000. The property, which is 10 years old, provides 5,424 sq ft over ground and first floor, with a secure yard at the rear.

This rare industrial freehold unit has been recently sold in Aylesbury. The property comprises 6,085 sq ft over ground and first floor and was sold close to the asking price of £575,000.

Landlords…..take advice before agreeing lease renewals

In several areas around the Thames Valley, there is an acute shortage of industrial warehouse units. In these uncertain times, many tenants are choosing to stay in their current premises until the economic market is more stable. This means that they are entering into lease renewal negotiations with their Landlord.

It is very easy for a Landlord to be too hasty to accept an increase in rent without taking advice from commercial agents, often a rise in rent of circa 10% seems like a good increase.  However, leases that were signed in recessionary times are now coming to an end. Some industrial rents in the High Wycombe area that were signed at circa £4 – £5 per sq ft are now being let around £9.50 – £9.95 per sq ft, so it is easy to see how judging your new rent based only on the percentage increase can be financially dangerous.

New Patisserie coming to White Hart Street, High Wycombe

New Offices for Chandler Garvey

We have relocated our head office in High Wycombe to larger, fully refurbished premises in the Town Centre.  Previously based in Thame House, we made ourselves homeless when we sold the 30,000 sq ft office property for residential development.

The new premises at 4 Paul’s Row were being marketed by ourselves for the owner and it was an interesting discussion when we announced to our client that we had found a tenant willing to take the spaces!

Michael Garvey commented “Having sold Thame House to make ourselves homeless, it was fortuitous that we were marketing office premises in the Town Centre that were just right for us.  the new landlord client was a little surprised when I told him who the prospective new tenant was though!  The new offices are more spacious than our old ones and we have been able to practice what we preach, the fact that the quality of a firm’s premises are a reflection of its corporate identity and investing in good quality premises can have a direct bearing on the success of the business”

We have had an active 2016; winning the EGi Deals Competition for Buckinghamshire that recognises the firm that has done the most commercial sales and lettings in the county, has sold office property for residential conversion in excess of £20m and has been appointed on a number of high profile disposals including 100,000 sq ft of newly refurbished Grade A offices and land for development totally more than 50 acres.
