Woking office development gets green light

Posted on by John Cronin

A new, modern office development in Woking, Surrey has been approved by the local planning authority.

woking officeArchitects Holder Mathias have been granted approval (subject to a section 106 agreement being agreed) for plans for a 27,000 sq ft office development that will see a two-section, modern office building being constructed on a site at 121 Chertsey Road in the town. According to the planning documentation, the investment company behind the scheme is Canada Life.

The site, upon which an existing, vacant building currently stands, has been subject to four previous planning applications for office developments. The last application for a new office scheme was rejected upon appeal in March, 2009. The existing building is to be demolished and the new building will offer in excess of 3 times the floor space of the existing one.

The “uncompromisingly modern” building will feature a 6-storey main block with an additional 3-storey, curved section. The new offices are being constructed near residential housing and existing office blocks that were constructed in the 1970’s and 1980’s and the architects felt that a single block design was not appropriate. The speculative development is to be marketed as being suitable for either headquarters style premises or as multiple tenant occupancy.

Indicative rental prices for this new, Grade A development are not yet available. Other serviced offices in Chertsey Road are marketed at rental prices in the region £15 / sq ft – £17.50 / sq ft.
