A major refurbishment of Strode Business Centre, has resulted in such a transformation of the Plympton complex, that it must surely qualify as the Cinderella of Plymouth’s Business Estates.
Strode Business Centre started life as a Government Skill Training Centre in the 1960’s. The 5.5 acre site was transferred in the 1990’s to private use, and has since been developed to provide facilities for a multitude of trade, retail, and industrial users, including Enterprise Car Hire, Realwood Furniture, and Perry’s Builders Merchants.
Units vary from as small as 120 ft2 to over 11,000 ft2, and are available on a range of leasehold and licence options, for terms from 6 months to 15 years. ‘Easy in’ ‘easy out’ provisions ensure that businesses are not tied into long term commitments they do not want, and competitive flexible rental packages are likewise geared to encourage growing businesses. A large yard, good parking and unloading facilities, together with a secure gated site, including CCTV all enhance the business environment.
The recent refurbishment has not only greatly enhanced the appearance of the buildings, with new cladding, roof, loading doors, and replacement glazing, it has also brought the main units up to modern insulation standards. Occupiers can now benefit from low maintenance costs, which together with insurance, and the other services/facilities is covered under a current Service Charge of only 60 pence per ft2 per annum.
With Unit 3 now under offer to a grounds maintenance business, only two large units remain to let – Unit 7b (8,417 ft2) , and Unit 8 (2,806 ft2), which can be combined, if required.
