Owners of Lakeside North Harbour have been named Commercial Landlord of the Year at the awards ceremony last night – continuing regional success and recognition for the south coast’s premier business campus.

The campus, owned by the Portsmouth City Council and managed on their behalf by Avison Young, scooped the award at this year’s South Coast Property Awards in recognition of its innovative approach to tackling challenges and attracting new occupiers in its thriving business campus.

Alongside this achievement, Lakeside was also a finalist in the ‘Workplace of the Year’ category this year, having won the award for the past two years. These awards and recognition celebrate an organisation’s commitment to inclusive work cultures, attracting and retaining occupiers which Lakeside North Harbour and Portsmouth City Council value highly.

Simon Bateman, Asset Manager at Lakeside North Harbour, said:

“We are thrilled that our team’s hard work has been recognised at the South Coast Property Awards yet again this year. This is a huge achievement and everyone involved in making this happen should be proud of the work done so far.

“Our space offers an inspiring and relaxing environment, creating a unique experience for everyone. This includes our commitment to environmental sustainability, with a 130-acre site that sets us apart, alongside modern facilities for all.

“Lakeside is more than just a workplace; it’s a collaborative environment redefining the concept of where and how we work.”
