The world-leading property consultancy, Knight Frank has today announced that Tritax Property Income Fund was awarded planning consent for the refurbishment of a vacant landmark Uxbridge office.
Located at 1 Furzeground Way, the circa 70,000 sq ft office building is situated in one of Europe’s most sought-after business parks, close to the M4, M25 and Heathrow Airport.
The planned refurbishment works include a repositioned entrance, new showers and more.
Commenting on the development, Will Foster, Partner at Knight Frank, said: “The reinvention of 1 Furzeground Way will deliver a truly unique, reinvented Grade A product into the Heathrow and wider Thames Valley office market, where only two new schemes have started on site in the past six months.
Will ads: “With occupiers requirements increasingly focused on well-connected locations, the easy access to the motorway network and being within easy reach of two Crossrail Stations, 1 Furzeground Way can readily satisfy this demand.”
Designed by TP Bennett, the development is targeting a “Very Good” BREEAM rating.
The planned refurbishment is the first office redevelopment project undertaken by Tritax Property Income Fund – Work is expected to start in February, with practical completion targeting the end of the year.
