DEMAND for our workspace in our neighbourhood has grown so strong that we’re investing £700,000 in further development.
Following on from our £1million infrastucture upgrade, we’re now looking to help future users of our lovely business park by redeveloping a previously unserviceable space and turning it into a car park for a further 250-plus vehicles. This improvement will certainly make a difference when potential customers are looking for a home for their business – as well as a home for their staff.
Eddie Humphries, estate manager at Lingfield Point, said: “More and more businesses are seeing the benefits of being based here, from our convenient location, which links directly into the North East’s roads infrastructure, to the excellent onsite facilities.
Clearbell, which manages the fund that owns Lingfield Point, now plans to demolish unused buildings that were formerly part of the old Rothmans factory, freeing up 70,000sqft of space for new use.
“This is part of Clearbell’s continuing investment to developing both office and industrial provision at Lingfield Point,” said Eddie.
“We’ve recently made a £1m upgrade to our infrastructure, and this latest move is part of our plans to futureproof the site as we continue to grow.”
David Jackson of agents Jackson and Partners said accessibility and facilities are major deciding factors when businesses choose Lingfield Point as their base.
“Car parking is a fundamental requirement for any business, and it’s great news that Lingfield Point is making this further investment,” he said.
“The business park also has a strong commitment to supporting convenient public transport and car sharing for everyone who works here, which organisations certainly appreciate.
“Add this to Lingfield’s excellent on-site facilities – ranging from a café and nursery to access to high speed, fibre optic connectivity, the 24-hour concierge service and fantastic security – and it’s easy to see why we get so many enquiries.”
