Highcross Lets Final Space At 1000 Lakeside, Portsmouth

September 9, 2014

Highcross has let the last remaining space at its 1000 Lakeside office building in Portsmouth to Helistrat, a leading environmental consultancy and contract management company.

Helistrat is moving its head office to 1000 Lakeside following expansion and has taken 5,500 sq ft, over twice the size of its current Gosport based office.

This latest letting follows a 17,500 sq ft deal with sports retailer, Wiggle earlier this year. Occupiers at the 275,000 sq ft office building also include Capita, The Southern Co-operative, Babcock, Hippowaste and Coffin Mew.

Highcross is now marketing a wide range of additional office opportunities at Lakeside North Harbour, ranging from bespoke design and build schemes along the lakeside to newly refurbished accommodation at existing office buildings on the business campus.

Helistrat was founded in 2009 and works with some of the UK’s best known brands including M&S, Ann Summers, Gatwick Airport and the Environment Agency to unlock the commercial and environmental benefits of more sustainable business models. The business has grown quickly, from five people when it started, to more than 70 today.

Helistrat Managing Director Joy Donnell comments: “We have outgrown our original head office following rapid growth and 1000 Lakeside offered a great location which is easily accessible for our staff, including our field team who are located all around the country. The office space is much better for our needs and the excellent selection of facilities on site will also be a great benefit.”

The Lakeside North Harbour business campus is located adjacent to Junction 12 of the M27. Facilities on site include the Central Square retail and leisure hub, a day nursery, extensive car parking and complementary shuttle bus service.

Nick Turner, asset management director at Highcross adds: “The letting of the final office space at our anchor 1000 Lakeside building is an important milestone in the development of the business park and we are looking forward to building on this success with a wide range of new opportunities for companies looking to relocate here.”

Agents for Highcross at Lakeside North Harbour are Hughes Ellard and Vail Williams.
