Eamon Kennedy, head of commercial agency at Kirkby Diamond

Five companies are relocating to a leading Luton business park following deals completed by commercial property consultancy Kirkby Diamond.

Phase one of the Business Homes development at Capability Green has welcomed Bexhill UK Ltd, Norland Managed Services, Gate Gourmet, and Hyde Group and Galliford Try, said Kirkby Diamond head of commercial agency Eamon Kennedy.

Kirkby Diamond has completed lettings amounting to a total of 15,000 sq ft in four Grade A office buildings. The company was appointed by a private fund to market three properties on phase one of Business Homes development together with a private investor who owns one of the properties. All are now fully let.

The most recent lettings to leading housebuilding and construction group Galliford Try and Bexhill UK Ltd have taken leases on space between 1,600 sq ft and 3,400 sq ft at 721 and 726 Capability Green.

Kirkby Diamond is a full service firm of chartered surveyors and property consultants. The company, with offices in Luton, Milton Keynes and Bedford, works with local and national clients to offer a total solution to their surveying and commercial agency needs.

Eamon said: “It’s very satisfying to see that these office buildings are now fully let and that we have been able to attract five high quality businesses to Business Homes.

“Luton is becoming increasingly attractive to companies looking for high quality office accommodation with reasonable rents in a great location. These are very positive times for Luton which can only be helped further by the major developments in the pipeline, such as the £200 million transit system announced for London Luton Airport.”

Capability Green is a high quality business environment, which is widely regarded as one of the leading business parks on the M1 corridor. It extends to 85 acres and provides approximately one million sq ft of offices and on-site health club and canteen facilities. Occupiers include, Selex Galileo, Barclays Bank, Keepmoat, Astra Zenica, Ernst and Young, DHL and Regus to name but a few.

It is conveniently situated at Junction 10a of the M1, approximately 10 miles from the M25 intersection and 1.5 miles from Luton Airport, providing both national and international communications. Luton Parkway railway station, which offers both Thameslink and Midland mainline services to Central London and to Gatwick Airport, is within one mile.
