Three of Leicestershire’s most popular and modern business parks are now being managed by our commercial property team.

Pear Tree Business Park in Ratby; Alma Park Business Centre in Claybrooke Parva; and Dovecote Court in Potters Marston each provide high quality, flexible office space amid characterful, semi-rural settings. Our commercial property team, ranked as the CoStar number one agent for office deals in Leicester, has taken over the service management of each park, focusing on full occupancy and best value for tenants.

“The growth of this side of the business has been positively accelerating, as landlords realise the value of working with independent experts with specialist local knowledge,” said our Director, Jason Hercock. “Since the start of the year, our management work has increased significantly, which given the changing requirements of the office market post-Covid, is an excellent endorsement of the team’s expertise.

“With in-house Chartered Surveyors and qualified accountants, we’re able to work seamlessly to forecast trends and provide realistic budgets, resulting in an attractive proposition for tenants and landlords. Having worked with the owners of each of these business parks on the agency side for several years, it’s extremely pleasing to strengthen our partnerships by undertaking the management role,” concluded Jason. 

The award-winning Pear Tree Business Park, on the edge of Ratby village, has nine offices between 880 – 1,870 sq ft. One of the most eco-friendly business premises, it features sedum green roofs, a biomass boiler shared heating scheme feeding underfloor heating to each office, and LED lighting with movement sensors.

Just off the A5 and with excellent access to the M1, M6 and M69, Alma Park has over 20,000 sq ft office space together with ample parking, cafeteria and conference facilities. Dovecote Court, created from 17th Century barns, is recognised as one of Leicestershire’s prime locations, and when space became available here for the first time in two decades, we let this within just eight weeks.

Jason added: “I’m pleased to report that the increased work we have secured with these three longstanding clients is indicative of the pattern in our wider portfolio, where circa 90% of our business is repeat. In a competitive market, this is exceptional and we’re proud to be trusted advisors to many of the Midlands most well-known businesses, developers and landlords. This growth means we’re recruiting, ahead of more exciting expansion plans yet to be announced.”

One 3,025 sq ft office remains available for sale or to let at Peartree Business Park. Contact Jason for viewings.
