Land and property
Our property represents superb value for money. High quality developments and well-situated land are available at exceptionally competitive prices.
We know that companies are seeking alternatives to an all-out presence in London. Rising office rents have presented barriers for many large, SME and tech firms in the capital. Current rents in our city centre and business parks range from £9 per sq. ft. to £13 per sq. ft. contributing to some of the lowest operating costs in our region, and providing London-locked businesses with a real solution to rising rents and other costs in the capital. A report by Colliers recently ranked Peterborough as the third most affordable city in the UK to do business based on the average cost of office space.
Soaring office costs in larger cities coupled with the increasing cost of housing are driving smart businesses to look at exploring operation splits between London and accessible lower-cost cities. We can help in a number of ways and can fast-track new builds too. Developments like Kelway’s 30,000 sq. ft. unit at Cygnet Park were built to BREEAM Excellent standards in under a year from planning submission to fit-out.
An excellent eco-system of finance, legal, design, landscaping and other support services is complemented by Peterborough City Council’s forward-thinking planning department. Their team is repeatedly awarded ‘excellence’ standard and is always looking for ways to say ‘yes’.
We have the available space and experienced professionals to help you make the right property decisions. Opportunity Peterborough’s Economic Development team works closely with local commercial property agents and offers a free and confidential property search.
