BNP Paribas Real Estate, the leading property adviser, alongside Loveday, has been appointed by clients of F&C REIT Asset Management to market Focal Point, a prominent 33,000 sq ft office building located in Swindon.
The property is situated in the heart of Swindon’s central business district, only minutes away from Swindon railway station which offers a direct rail link to London Paddington with a journey time of just one hour. Road communications are also excellent via junctions 15 and 16 of the M4 motorway and the A419 dual carriageway, offering direct access to the Cotswolds and the M5.
Current occupiers located close to the standalone five storey building include Network Rail, AMEY, ZURICH, BCS, and Research Councils UK.
Daniel Smethurst of BNP Paribas Real Estate commented: “Focal Point offers total flexibility with lease packages and accommodation, which can be tailored to suit occupier’s individual requirements. While we are keen to speak with potential tenants on a leasehold basis, our client may also consider the sale of their freehold interest.”
Bradley Forbes of Loveday added: “With eyes on Swindon as a “focal point” for public sector relocation and the rail industry, we believe there’s great potential for Focal Point. We are confident that quality of accommodation, its location and the good car parking provision will only help bolster its position in the market.”
The property is available in its entirety or on a floor by floor basis on new effective full repairing and insuring lease – terms direct with the landlord. The quoting rent is £12 per sq ft exclusive of business rates, service charge and VAT.
