Office occupiers seeking a modern take on business accommodation in the Peterborough area have looked to Summit Park in Hampton, a brand new office development where the final 2,150 sq ft of business space is now under offer, according to Barker Storey Matthews – now part of Eddisons.
Summit Park – developed by the Beeson Wright Partnership and designed by local architectural practice, David Turnock Associates – is a development of high quality, modern office buildings set within the Cygnet Park area of Hampton Business Park and offering a total of 18,715 sq ft of brand new office floor space.
The remaining 2,150 sq ft under offer is in Building Four where the ground floor occupier is Handelsbanken. Each office building at Summit Park is designed around a full glazed, core atrium with solar shading and has a second floor boardroom with a view across the ‘Teardrop’ lake to the east of the development.
According to Barker Storey Matthews, the car parking ratios at Summit Park are twice the level for competing modern office space constructed in the last ten to fifteen years in nearby business districts and this, along with the high quality build specification, has helped to secure rental levels at circa £17 per square foot (psf).
The combination of parking provision and quality accommodation are aspects of Summit Park which appealed to Handelsbanken in its search for new premises.
Julian Turner, Branch Manager, Handelsbanken, said, “Summit Park offers us not only modern, high calibre office space but excellent customer and colleague parking facilities. In addition, the space we have on the ground floor of Building Four ensures we are future-proofed for our forthcoming office requirements as our customer base here grows.”
Steve Hawkins, Director, Barker Storey Matthews, added, “Hampton has successfully bedded-in as a highly desirable Peterborough business location. In being developed-out in properly planned and considered phases, it is a pleasant, modern office working environment with good access to commuter routes and onward road links.
“Summit Park moves this Hampton model forward. It’s a good looking development combining form and function and, as its almost complete occupancy level – much of it pre-let – testifies, such requirements are top of mind for high profile office occupiers such as Handelsbanken.”
