‘El­e­gant’ of­fice work starts in town cen­tre

£30m con­struc­tion to be com­pleted in win­ter 2016

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

CRANES and con­struc­tion work­ers are be­com­ing a com­mon site in Uxbridge town cen­tre, as Aviva In­vestors gets to work on a £30mil­lion re­de­vel­op­ment.

The project, in Bel­mont Road, will cre­ate a 125,000sqft of of­fices, de­signed to suit one cor­po­rate oc­cu­pier or let to mul­ti­ple busi­nesses.

Af­ter re­ceiv­ing plan­ning con­sent in June 2015, the scheme is due for com­ple­tion in early win­ter 2016.

Jon Ashcroft, di­rec­tor and head of the south east and re­gional of­fices at Aviva In­vestors, said: “We made the de­ci­sion to re­de­velop Bel­mont, as we be­lieve it will of­fer mar­ket lead­ing of­fice space once com­pleted.

“This el­e­gantly de­signed, high spec de­vel­op­ment is a true town cen­tre lo­ca­tion, be­ing min­utes away from Uxbridge tube sta­tion and yet equally well con­nected to Heathrow, the na­tional mo­tor­way net­work and Cen­tral Lon­don.

“It will have the added bonus of sub­stan­tial, on­site park­ing and large flex­i­ble floor plates.”

The de­vel­op­ment, where neigh­bours in­clude Coca Cola and Xerox, is set to achieve a BREEAM ex­cel­lence rat­ing for en­ergy ef­fi­ciency.

It will in­clude an ad­di­tional fifth floor, two roof ter­races and a full height atrium, as well as 171 se­cure base­ment car park­ing space and 116 cy­cle bays.

Hilling­don Coun­cil is ac­tively en­cour­ag­ing in­vest­ment in Uxbridge town cen­tre.

A spokesper­son said: “This is an­other great de­vel­op­ment in the town cen­tre and will serve to sup­port the growth of Uxbridge as a com­mer­cial cen­tre as well as pro­vid­ing em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal peo­ple.”
