Commercial People has learned that the Fairways Business Park in Livingston, West Lothian is close to full occupation with five lettings concluded in 2020.
Despite the tough market conditions experienced by office landlords under the pandemic, November has seen a wealth of activity at the park including the lease of a 1,700 sq ft ground floor office and a 2,889 sq ft office to facilities management company Enertech FM, and health and home care services company Lucerne Scotland respectively.
Earlier in the year, the business park also leased over 6,000 sq ft to two other companies on similar lease lengths.
Commenting on the activity, William McAlister, Property Director said: “Since lockdown restrictions were relaxed in the summer, we have welcomed four new occupiers to Fairways Business Park and overseen the expansion of a valued existing tenant within the estate.
“This is testament to the high-quality office environment, which is conveniently located with the added amenity benefits provided by Deer Park Golf & Country Club next door.”
Joint Letting agent and Associate Cameron Whyte of Ryden added: “Unlike the previous recession which severely impacted out-of-town office locations such as Livingston, this pandemic seems to be having the opposite effect as the attraction of city centre amenities is currently less appealing to occupiers.
“The highly accessible location of Deer Park and the volume of car parking combined with high-quality refurbishments has proven popular with companies looking to offer staff flexible working conditions.”
