Talbot Green Business Centre almost full with two new tenants

CARDIFF, 29 May 2014 – Following a significant refurbishment project, Unit 2 at Talbot Green Business Centre near Llantrisant is now approaching full occupancy, with two recent deals brokered by leading property consultants JLL and Alder King.

New tenants, Innovate Trust and Huw David Design, have taken more than 3,000 sq ft of office space on the first floor in two separate lettings.

Matthew Wright, surveyor in JLL’s Cardiff office, said: “Unit 2 offers tenants a good quality, air conditioned office in a strategic location off Junction 34 of the M4 motorway. My client has been rewarded for implementing a competitive pricing strategy with a building that is now almost fully let”.

Innovate Trust is a charitable organisation that supports people with learning disabilities, mental health issues and physical impairments. The charity, which has moved from Canton in Cardiff, has entered into a ten year agreement with owners Serviced Office Rentals.

Huw David Design is an established team of graphic designers, web developers and project managers who have moved from premises just two miles away in Llantrisant. The firm has taken the space on a three year lease.

Nick French, chief executive at Innovate Trust, said: “We are a local charity so it was important that we remained close to those we support in the Taff Ely area. The new offices at Talbot Green Business Centre are in a great location and provide us with plenty of space. Crucially, we have good parking facilities as well as sufficient space for a training room.

“It is a real pleasure to work in a modern office environment situated in a semi-rural area with such good views; we feel very close to the countryside here.”

Huw David, managing director at Huw David Design, said: “The move is small in terms of distance, but huge in terms of our journey as a company. Our new home, which is just a few miles away from our previous office, provides us with more space and a new environment in which to welcome our clients.

“We now have dedicated meeting and conference areas which we’ll be using as we continue to aid our clients with their branding and website requirements.”

Serviced Office Rentals bought the building as a vacant property at auction in 2012 and carried out a complete refurbishment project to create a serviced office scheme on the ground floor, which comprises a manned reception, board room, meeting rooms and a kitchen. The open plan first floor offices have been let on traditional leases.
