Commercial Estates Group (CEG), advised by Bray Fox Smith, has completed a letting to the London Ambulance Service at Maritime House in Barking, Essex.
London Ambulance Service has taken 15,980 sq ft on a 3 year lease, with break at year 2 and are paying £16.50 per sq ft. They join regional newspaper publisher Archant and North East London NHS Foundation as tenants at Maritime House.
James Shillabeer of Bray Fox Smith commented: “Barking is only 15 minutes from the City of London by train and rents are competitive in comparison with other locations this well connected. There is a further 13,760 sq ft of office accommodation available and the building has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard.”
CEG’s Rachel FitzGerald added: “There has been considerable investment in Barking over recent years, with new schemes such as Redrow’s Barking Central and London Road, part of the Barking Town Centre’s Regeneraion Scheme, coming out of the ground. New residents and businesses are being drawn to the transformed town and this is reflected in the take up of office space at Maritime House.”
Maritime House is located on Linton Road in Barking, just a short walk from Barking train station which offers easy access to the City (15 minutes), and only a mile from the A13, with easy access to the M25.
