Dawsons announce the Matrix Deal

Dawsons Commercial and the Matrix Deal

Employed on a joint-agency basis with Savills, Dawsons have recently acted in the commercial letting of the well known Matrix One building, in Swansea Enterprise Park.

Dawsons announce the Matrix Deal

The Grade A office space offered Tenants c. 30,000 sqft of useable space with the Enterprise Park attracting national and international companies alike. Over two lettings, deals were agreed for a combined 25,000 sqft and this indicates that demand for high-quality office space within Swansea is present. Both lettings were agreed with well-known businesses and further interest still presented itself even after the deals were agreed. The Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust and the New Zealand Manuka Group have agreed new 10 year leases at the property. The ambulance trust will occupy the ground and part first floor with the New Zealand Manuka Group taking the second floor.

Gary Carver, director in the business space team at Savills Cardiff, comments: “We are delighted to have secured two new tenants at Matrix One. The building provides high-quality space with excellent parking. As a result of the lettings the property now only has one suite left on the first floor.”
Matthew Mason, associate with Dawsons in Swansea, comments. “These are significant and high profile lettings within the Swansea office market and it goes to show there is demand for high-quality space such as that at Matrix One. We now hope this will be the stimulus to attract a further high profile tenant to occupy the only remaining suite within the building”.

Dawsons’ commercial deals give boost to city centre business

A leader of Swansea’s business community claims there is ‘robust growth’ within the city centre’s commercial property sector sparking optimism about the future.

Russell Greenslade, Chief Executive of Swansea Business Improvement District (BID), made his confident assessment after Dawsons Property revealed that eight vacant city centre units have all been snapped up by businesses in the past few weeks.

“Swansea city centre’s commercial activity is showing robust growth which is a positive sign,” said Mr Greenslade.

“Investors are looking to the city centre for opportunities as a result of the very real regeneration plans we have in place and committed to starting in 2017.

“These are exciting times for the city centre which is very much open for business so I truly encourage investors and businesses to continue looking at Swansea city centre as an area of growth and opportunity.”’

The commercial units which have been let include the former Windsor Café in Craddock Street (sale agreed) and two units in Union Street.

There is also one in Picton Arcade as well as two in Oxford Street and another two in Nelson Street.

The Dawsons deals are a big boost to the city according to the leading Swansea estate agents.

“The recent lettings we have secured in the city centre is a sure sign that local businesses feel that the city is developing in the right direction,” said Andrew Cox, Surveyor in Dawsons Commercial Department.

“With the draft bill for an alteration in business rates in place for 2017, this reaffirms that the local authority is doing their best to help keep the city a vibrant and diverse place for consumers to shop, and I’m hopeful that 2017 will be another strong year for local business.

“2016 has seen further development for student accommodation in the city centre, and with the redevelopment of the Oceana Nightclub, this will only attract more local business to the area.”
