Chelmsford commercial property update
Our Chelmsford commercial team have gone from strength to strength over the past 18 months. The acquisition of Taylor & Company has seen Fenn Wright bolster its office and retail stock within Chelmsford and the surrounding area.
The team has further expanded with the appointment of Robert Haigh, MRICS, a Partner at Fenn Wright, with twelve years experience in the South Essex and London property markets. Robert will be overseeing commercial activities in and around Chelmsford and the wider area.
As experienced agents with an excellent network, not much goes on in the commercial sector without us knowing about it. We are involved in selling and letting several interesting and high profile properties in the town centre at the moment.
Buckenham House is a high specification office building with impressive entrance and reception area and 2 passenger lifts serving all floors. The building offers 44,848 sq ft of flexible open plan space with partitioned meeting rooms, private offices, fully fitted kitchen and break out areas.
Buckenham House – high spec offices which could potentially be split by floors offering suites from 3,315 sq ft.
The Marconi Evolution scheme which surrounds the railway station is almost complete and the new underpass will create improved pedestrian access for commuters and those walking to the town centre. We are marketing a range of offices and retail premises on the site, for sale or available to let – you can find out more here.

One Chelmsford has recently launched which aims to promote and support businesses operating in the city centre. There is also a rumour that Chelmsford intends to make a bid for the Capital of Culture at some point over the coming years.
Robert Haigh commented “The commercial property market in Chelmsford is an exciting one to be involved in at the moment. There is a very good level of activity and there has been no drop off in demand in the first quarter of the year despite the big ‘B’ looming large. The strongest demand that we have seen is for freehold investment properties and also for freehold properties for owner occupation. This demand is particularly strong in the industrial/warehouse sector but any asset priced correctly will generate a high level of interest and see a sale agreed quickly”.
