Co-Star: London style amenities topping South East offices wishlist

Chris Taylor, executive director at APAM, commented: “On the acquisition of Arlington Business Park we identified providing new amenities to the park as the most important element to successfully implementing our business plan. Given the typical “out of town” nature of business parks, amenities are increasingly important to occupiers looking to attract and retain the best talent, and it’s no different for landlords attracting new tenants and retaining existing ones.
“Shortly following our acquisition of Theale, we completed a survey of all employees on the park which confirmed our beliefs on what tenants wanted to see brought to the existing business environment. We are therefore now on site providing a new 6,500 sq ft café, gym and meeting room facility which alongside our tenant engagement and onsite events programmes will reposition the park and move it on a par with the current most successful UK business parks. We are already seeing the rewards of this strategy having secured over 25,000 sq ft of new lettings to the park in the past 12 months”
