Lodge Park Business Centre in Colchester set for further expansion
Lodge Park is a prestigious development of fully serviced high-quality offices in a landscaped environment on Lodge Lane in Colchester. Preparation is currently underway for the third and final phase of expansion, with the construction of two additional office buildings.
Over the past two years, the focus has been on expanding the business centre, bringing its total capacity to over 200 workstations. Designed to cater for a range of business sizes, from small start-ups to larger teams of up to 8 people, Lodge Park provides a professional setting equipped with state-of-the-art meeting rooms, collaboration spaces and a fully equipped Technogym fitness centre.
To date, expansion at Lodge Park has been driven by growing demand for high-quality serviced office space in Colchester. The city is a popular destination for businesses due to its good transport links, proximity to London, and affordable commercial property costs. The business centre has been particularly popular with small to medium-sized professional services firms, as it offers a range of flexible office solutions in a corporate environment with all-inclusive facilities and ample free parking.
The next phase of the development consists of two additional buildings, specifically designed for corporate occupiers. Building on the success of Lodge Park Business Centre, these modern new offices are designed to be flexible, highly comfortable, and supportive of employee wellbeing, as well as incorporating many sustainable features. The specification is to an extremely high standard and the generous on-site parking is sufficient to offer a parking space for each workstation in both buildings.
Off-market discussions have already resulted in two of the four suites being placed under offer, leaving only the two larger offices available. The largest of the two buildings has been designed for a single occupier with a net internal area of 11,000 sq ft. over three floors. The second consists of a first and second floor totalling 7,000 sq ft. which is accessed via a prominent ground floor entrance.
Wellness amenities include a private fitness centre, social and culinary spaces for each one of the remaining tenancies. These buildings and amenities have been designed to help employees stay healthy and refreshed, leading to increased productivity whilst making their working day easier and more enjoyable.
Conveniently located adjacent to the A12/A120 Crown Interchange and J29 of the A12, Lodge Park offers direct links to London and the north, as well as being close to Colchester mainline railway station and the city centre. There are a number of amenities nearby, including shops, restaurants, and leisure facilities.
Commenting on the development, Jeremy Newman of Fenn Wright said “Lodge Park is a very positive development for Colchester and will help to create new jobs thereby adding to the city’s attractiveness as a business destination.“
Construction is expected to commence in April 2024 resulting in the offices being ready for occupation in September 2025. Interested parties should contact the sole letting agent Fenn Wright, Michael Moody or Jeremy Newman, on 01206 854545 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
