Leicester letting secured for Howes Percival LLP

08/04/2013

Acting jointly with FHP on behalf of Bassi Properties Limited, we have secured a significant Leicester letting to a prestigious law firm.

Howes Percival LLP has signed a 10-year lease for Unit 3, The Osiers, at Braunstone. The 13,349 sq ft unit offers prime office accommodation with a high quality specification throughout.

The property is located at Meridian Business Park, which is strategically situated adjacent to the M1 Junction 21 and the M69.

Extensively refurbished building boasts ample quality facilities

The two-storey detached building was extensively refurbished and boasts fully raised access floors, new suspended ceilings with inset LG7 lighting, new carpets throughout, a lift, fitted kitchen facilities, and 60 on-site car parking spaces.

Howes Percival LLP was previously based at Bede Island Business Park on the edge of Leicester city centre.
 
Jane Taylor, Director in our Office Agency team, said: “After considering a number of options available to them, we believe Howes Percival was attracted to The Osiers due to the building’s unique qualities. It is a high-quality, self-contained building suitable for the company’s headquarters with excellent parking facilities and links to the motorway - yet is set within a quiet, landscaped location.”

The Osiers benefits from frequent public transport services and excellent amenities including the adjacent Hilton Hotel with Fosse Retail Park and Sainsbury's Triangle nearby.

New location supports future business growth

Matthew Talbot, Partner at Howes Percival LLP, said: "The lease on our offices at Bede Island was coming to an end and as a firm we felt it was time to relocate to a location that was more convenient for our clients.

“To be so close to the M1/M69 junction has now made us a lot more accessible to our clients and contacts on the M1 corridor, as well as Birmingham and the West Midlands. The new office provides us with a fantastic space to accommodate our current set up as well as supporting future growth.’’

A welcome addition to Bassi Properties' commercial property portfolio

We acted jointly with FHP on behalf of Bassi Properties Limited for the letting, while Budworth Hardcastle acted for Howes Percival LLP.

Avinash Bassi, Managing Director of Bassi Properties Limited, said: “Unit 3 is our second purchase in the thriving Meridian Business Park, which has been let to a strong covenant. Additionally, the fully refurbished building is an excellent addition to our existing commercial property portfolio. Working with LSH proved to be beneficial for all parties involved.”

Howes Percival LLP is a leading commercial law firm with offices in Leicester, London, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Norwich and Manchester. The company is renowned for its top quality service and is recognised as forward-thinking, innovative providers of expert legal advice.
