Fees and Real estate property conveyancers
The proposed 6,968 sq m (75,000 sq ft) scheme will be the second phase of the proposed one million sq ft Cobalt Business Park in North Tyneside - one of the few remaining sites with Enterprise Zone status until the year 2006. Guy Marsden, Director of Highbridge Business Park is so confident in the burgeoning demand for call centres, particularly in the North-East, that he is accelerating the high quality facility in order that it may be completed by October this year. The building will be completed within a sophisticated envelope so that it can be internally designed to occupier demand.

Different agreements can be made between the local authority and the applicant/developer in meeting the Part V requirement depending on the authority’s housing strategy. The budget brought clarity to the stamp duty situation and this should help market confidence. Real Property Conveyancers are chosen as the one to perform the conveyancing process in a different way to face success.

I am absolutely confident in the interest from inward investors in call centres in the UK in general, and the North-East in particular, is still growing, said Mr Marsden. The London Borough of Camden has resolved to grant planning permission to Burford Group Plc and Volkswagen Group United Kingdom Ltd for the creation of Volkswagen and Audi dealerships on land to the west of the new O2 leisure and retail centre in London NW6 1RZ.

The 93 sq m (1,002 sq ft) store on the first floor level opposite Clarks, has been let on a 5 year lease at a rent of £40,000 per annum with a 6 month rent free period. This letting follows hard on the heels of Vodafone relocating within the centre to a store more than double the size of their previous store. The 144 sq m (1,545 sq ft) unit is located in the prime pitch, where rents are currently achieving over £220 Zone A. Joint letting agents for the Phase 11 & Phase 111 refurbishments are Lunson Mitchenall and Stiles Harold Williams.

Highbridge Properties Plc, has secured Ventura, a subsidiary of NEXT, the fashion multiple, for a second phase of offices extending to 15,607.6 sq m (168,000 sq ft), The property, owned by a syndicate of private investors, has a capital value of £26 million, and has been let at a rent of £9.50 per sq ft on a 16 year lease. Guy Marsden, Managing Director of Highbridge Plc, comments: 'This additional requirement of Ventura's represents exceptional inward investment and further endorses the Rotherham area as an outstanding location close to skilled labour known for low churn rates, while also being adjacent to excellent road and rail networks'.
