• New urban warehouse style workspace comes to central Reading

        • Boultbee Brooks Real Estate (BBRE) is undertaking a back to frame redevelopment of 35-43 Greyfriars Road to create a new urban, warehouse style workspace, which shall be known as The Brick Works.

          The Brick Works building represents a chance to acquire a self-contained 20,000 sq ft office in central Reading or 2,400-4,300 sq ft suites, a minute’s walk from the new £850m Crossrail station. The specification will include concierge, shoreditch ‘style’ exposed services, feature spiral stair double height reception, parking, lockers, bike storage, electric car charging and ready-to-go fibre connectivity. There will also be a communal roof terrace, subject to planning.

          Alex Aitchison, Director at BBRE said, “following the immense success of recent Boultbee Brooks developments, we are excited to see The Brick Works take shape over the next 6 months and are already presenting to interested occupiers. The White Building is 85 per cent let and Forbury Works is 100 per cent occupied already, so we expect a similar level of occupier demand for this unique workspace.”

          Tom Fletcher from LSH Reading added, “The Brick Works is a rare opportunity for an occupier with ambition, high standards and a sense of style to acquire a self-contained workspace on either a leasehold or freehold basis. It is unusual to find a building of this quality and style in Reading and so close to the station. We completed six lettings at The White Building and Forbury Works prior to works completing, so are keen to discuss opportunities with like-minded pioneering companies in advance of completion of the works.”

          Construction has started and The Brick Works building shall be completed in September 2018 with a guiding rent of mid £30s per sq ft. Lambert Smith Hampton and Savills are the letting agents for Boultbee Brooks Real Estate.
