Latest PDR deal completed

Britannia House typifies the type the poorer quality office space which the Government had in mind when relaxing the planning laws surrounding change of use from B1 office to residential use. Following a short marketing period, unconditional contracts were exchanged within 5 days at a price well in excess of the Sellers original expectations. The property will be converted to provide over 40 new homes, whilst retaining a retail use at ground floor, providing a new lease of life to this otherwise unviable building.

Since the introduction of Permitted Development Rights (PDR) allowing the change of use offices to residential, Kingsbury have become established as market leaders in the acquisition, sale and management of sale of PD schemes, having already completed sales for in excess of 1,280 units.

If you own an office premises which could benefit from PDR anywhere in England, please contact Paul Heale on 020 7183 2529 or for initial advice.
