Goodman commences building work on two state-of-the-art offices at Uxbridge Business Park +
Global integrated property group, Goodman, has commenced the development of two offices at Uxbridge Business Park that will provide 77,102 sq ft and 27,285 sq ft of net office space respectively. The developments are due to complete in early 2016.
Goodman owns and manages Uxbridge Business Park, which is currently home to Bristol-Myers Squibb, Mondelez International and Amgen. The fully landscaped park is situated in a highly sought-after location, within walking distance of Uxbridge Underground Station and only 17 miles from central London. It offers easy access to the motorway network and Heathrow Airport and is set within Green Belt land.
The two exceptional office schemes will offer high quality, efficient open plan office space spread over three storeys and will target a BREEAM rating of Very Good (2011), which is superior to BREEAM Excellent (2007), and an Energy Performance Certificate rating of B. Both properties will provide generous car parking at a ratio of 1:40 sqm, setting a competitive benchmark against other office schemes in Uxbridge and the greater London area.
James Raven, Development Director, Goodman UK Business Parks, said: “As the UK economy continues to gather pace, we are seeing an increase in demand for new premium office space, particularly in the Thames Valley, as well as a recognition that having an excellent working environment is the key to attracting and retaining the best staff.
“The development of these two exceptional offices at Uxbridge Business Park is a major investment for the park and the local area. The unique combination of accessibility and proximity to the town centre, together with its impressive landscaped setting, make the park a great place for a range of business customers.”
Located on Sanderson Road, less than a mile from Uxbridge town centre, the park totals 71 acres. Its grounds are fully landscaped and close to a canal, offering a pleasant working environment for the hundreds of employees that are based there.
