Three career highlights:
Over a career spanning nearly 30 years involving all forms of property from a nuclear bunker through to the vast majority of the County’s main business schemes, it is difficult to choose just three highlights; the following are certainly are worthy of note:

Letting acquisition, for SkyCaddie, at Haddenham: 
I have chosen this as we were presented with a challenging brief by our client but I was able to use my market knowledge to unearth an off market opportunity that we subsequently acquired on very favourable terms.

Sale of Foxcombe Hall, Oxford: It is not often you get to market a University Campus and, as such, our disposal of the former Open University Campus at Boars Hill has been a highlight, working alongside our residential team on this high profile instruction.

Letting Instruction, Silverstone Park: I am currently leading this letting instruction on behalf of MEPC, where we have been responsible for over 200,000 sq ft of lettings in the past 12 months and I enjoy helping guide the park’s future development form, alongside the wider team.

Acting on behalf of Addington Capital, Carter Jonas were retained as sole agents after the previous owner went into receivership.

The site contains a total of approximately 75,000 sqft of office and laboratory accommodation. The available accommodation comprises a modern working environment on an established Business Park close to Abingdon town Centre which offers a wide range of local amenities.

There were only 2 unit’s fully available totaling 4,700 sqft offering flexible accommodation. The remaining units were either let or under offer.
Carter Jonas’ role was to provide marketing advice, disposal strategies and asset management services in order to achieve a higher performance for the property as an asset for income producing purposes.

Due to the success of the site Carter Jonas have been able to improve the quoting rent from £15.50 psf to £16.50 psf led by recent letting activity.

Notable tenants include Fishawack, Tessella and Psioxis.
