A former dilapidated shop unit on Tavistock Street has been transformed into a newly opened business centre which was fully occupied within weeks of its launch.
Tavistock Yard, created by the conversion of a former dry cleaning business, is now home to 12 small firms including a beautician, counsellors, a sports therapist and general office users.
Agents Kirkby Diamond have let the front retail property to local OISC regulated immigration advisers, IQ Law Chambers.
Commercial agency surveyor Nathan Georgesaid: “We had an amazing response from local businesses once we launched Tavistock Yard to the market. It’s very rare to see so many firms so keen to take office space in one location.
“It speaks volumes for the quality of the redevelopment that we were able to secure occupiers for all the offices and shop so rapidly.”
Tavistock Yard owner Brent Hill said: “We were delighted with the work by our wonderful team of builders, JD Build Projects, and the marketing by Kirkby Diamond, to fulfil our concept for this building.”
According to Kirby Diamond, businesses across Bedfordshire have been adapting to the challenging economic climate, and they’ve seen a large increase in business lettings compared to the same period last year.
