Anglian Water takes space at Worldwide House in Peterborough
Savills, on behalf of Maya Capital, the specialist real estate and private equity firm, has let office space at Worldwide House in Thorpe Wood, Peterborough to Anglian Water Services Limited.
The water company that operates across the East of England has agreed to a new 10-year lease and will occupy 12,500 sq ft on part of the third floor of the three storey building.
This follows a lease renewal by Travelex, which will start in February 2021. The foreign exchange company will continue to occupy 42,000 sq ft on the first floor, with an additional 5,000 sq ft on part of the ground floor for a data centre.
As a result of this latest activity there is currently a further 49,370 sq ft available to let at a quoting rent of £15 per sq ft.
Edward Gee, associate director in the business space team at Savills Peterborough, said: “Worldwide House provides newly refurbished Grade A office accommodation in the well-established commercial location of Thorpe Wood, just two miles outside of Peterborough city centre. With an on-site café and nearby leisure facilities this was the ideal place for Anglian Water and its staff.”
David Pralong, managing partner at Maya Capital, added: “We are delighted to announce the signing of two major tenants at Worldwide House. Adding one new high-quality, long-term tenant and renewing a 11-year lease with another demonstrates the continued strength of this asset.”
