Aviva lands giffgaff as debut tenant at Uxbridge spec


Aviva Investors has signed giffgaff, the Telefonica owned mobile phone network, as the first tenant at Belmont, its 129,676 sq ft (12,047 sq m) speculative office redevelopment in Uxbridge.

Market sources this week said Uxbridge occupier giffgaff had signed for 23,000 sq ft on the ground floor. Quoting rents are 37.50 per sq ft.

Aviva carried out an 18 month, £30m redevelopment schedule of works which saw the building stripped back to its frame and rebuilt to create a grade A office scheme in the heart of Uxbridge town centre, West London.

Open plan floor plates averaging 26,500 sq ft (2,465 sq m) have been created over five levels with the building designed to suit either a sole corporate occupier or operate as a multi-let development.

The office scheme received full planning consent in June 2015 and included an additional fifth floor, two roof terraces and a full height atrium. In addition, 171 secure basement car parking space and 116 cycle bays are provided.

Cushman & Wakefield and Colliers International are acting for Aviva Investors. Giffgaff is unrepresented.
