Guildford Business Business Park welcomes MC2 Therapeutics
JLL advises PineBridge Benson Elliot and Cube Real Estate on two lettings at Guildford Business Park further establishing the location as an attractive hub for life science and knowledge intensive industries.
Pharmaceutical company MC2 Therapeutics has signed up to take 11,426 sq ft of laboratory space at Guildford Business Park.
MC2 Therapeutics is the latest life sciences occupier to commit to new space at Guildford Business Park. MC2 will use the ground floor of Building 1A predominantly for their R&D laboratory space which they have taken on a new 10-year lease.
Professional services consultant Barnet Waddingham will also join the tenant line-up at the park. It has taken 5,105 sq ft in Building 2 on a new five-year lease.
James Finnis, Head of South East markets at JLL, said: “Guildford Business Park is established as a hub for life science and innovation throughout Surrey and the wider South-West M25 corridor and the recent letting to MC2 Therapeutics is testament to that. The connectivity, amenity offer and high specification of the park ensures that it can offer growing and innovative businesses and organisations with a working environment that fosters creativity and collaboration.”
Sean Cleaver, Senior Director at COREP, said: “Given the lack of good quality supply that is suitable for a Biotech company across South-West M25 corridor, Guildford Business Park stood out as an excellent location for MC2. Although most recently occupied as an office, the core fundamentals of Building 1A have allowed us to easily adapt the building to satisfy MC2’s needs whilst also providing a collaborative ‘Park’ environment with excellent links to scientific talent from the adjoining University.
JLL and Bray Fox Smith acted on behalf of PineBridge Benson Elliot and Cube Real Estate, MC2 Therapeutics were represented by COREP.
