Business Park Innovation win for Arlington at Thames Valley Property Awards

Arlington Business Park in Theale won the Business Park Innovation Award at the fifth annual Thames Valley Property Awards last night.
The category recognises the role that parks play in the region’s economy and celebrates the ability of the developer, owner or management team to create a sustainable environment.
APAM and its joint venture partner Patron Capital won the award for Arlington Business Park, where they transformed one of the oldest established business parks in the Thames Valley into a 21st century work environment; fit for occupiers looking for premier office space with modern amenities and a vibrant park life in stunning surroundings.
The joint venture between APAM and Patron bought 11 buildings on the park totalling 360,000 sq ft in March 2015. Following the launch of a significant investment program to bring the 48-acre business park up to and beyond modern occupier requirements, a range of new tenant amenities have been delivered, including a café, gym, sports studio, convenience retail shop and meeting facilities. A new floating pavilion on the heart of the lake, the only one of its kind at a UK business park, has also recently completed, providing tenants with a multi-functional, flexible space in the centre of the park.
Held at Ascot Racecourse, the awards, which celebrate the achievements of developers, agents, planners, consultants, lawyers and dealmakers, were presented by TV presenter, broadcaster and former England rugby union player Martin Bayfield.
Chris Taylor, founding shareholder and executive director, added:
“Winning this award for Arlington Business Park is fantastic recognition of all the hard work that has gone into transforming a previously tired asset into a state-of-the-art example of a modern business park.
“Arlington Business Park is just one example of how we work to create value through hands-on and energetic asset management across the country. The investment and new facilities have dramatically repositioned the park far in excess of a normal business park offering, which has been extremely well received in the market and now by the industry too!”
