Handelsbanken opens new branch at Marine View Office Park in Portishead
Acting on behalf of PMH Western, property consultants Alder King have let a high quality office suite at Marine View Office Park in Portishead to Handelsbanken for a new branch serving Portishead and the surrounding district.
The bank has agreed a lease on Unit 2D, a 1,735 sq ft first floor suite in Building 2 off a quoting rent of £14 per sq ft.
With just two units remaining in Buildings 2 and 3, the multi-let office park is now approximately 90% occupied.
“It is a sign of the growing commercial importance of Portishead that Handelsbanken has chosen to open a new branch in the town to service clients along this stretch of the M5 corridor,” said Tom Dugay, senior surveyor at Alder King.
“This suite provides the highest spec office accommodation within Portishead and offers excellent access to the M5 as well as the town centre and nearby marina facilities. The re-opening of Portishead railway station scheduled for 2019 will further enhance the park’s connectivity.”
Founded in 1871, Handelsbanken is one of Sweden’s leading banks with over 800 branches in 200 countries and nearly 12,000 employees. Since commencing operations in the UK in 1982, Handelsbanken has built up a nationwide network of over 200 branches.
