Fire safety specialist firm Chubb has taken the final 9,479 sq ft space at Lotus Park in Staines.

Vail Williams and BNP Paribas Real Estate have jointly let the refurbished 103,000 sq ft, three-building, Thameside development where nine transactions were completed in the last 18 months on behalf of landlord Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM).

Details of the letting are confidential but recent deals include insurance broker Verlingue, taking a 4,780 sq ft suite at £38.29 per sq ft and another unnamed occupier taking 9,000 sq ft at £34.50 per sq ft.

Nick Webb, senior asset manager for LGIM, said: “Our strategy with this development was to deliver not only top quality interior spaces, under a range of our office products, but also to create some outstanding exterior amenities which benefit from our situation next to the River Thames.

“As a trusted landlord, it is incumbent upon us to set the best possible service and amenities for our occupiers and at Lotus Park this includes 24-hour concierge, and occupier events including our Summer party with live bands, barbecue, games area and boating along the river.”

Charlie Perkins, Vail Williams surveyor based in Woking, said: “Lotus Park is an exceptional development comprehensively refurbished to Grade A specification, has superfast broadband and is conveniently located – it is good to see it fully occupied.

“The recently landscaped new waterfront gardens provide a unique riverside amenity overlooking the River Thames and have certainly been a major factor in businesses relocating here as they seek to attract and retain top talent with a superlative working environment.”
