MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip Boris Johnson has visited Aviva Investors’ Belmont development in Uxbridge.
The 129,676 sq ft office redevelopment reached practical completion in December 2016, after an 18 month, £30 million redevelopment schedule of works which saw the building stripped back to its frame and rebuilt, with an extra fifth floor, to create a grade A office scheme in the heart of Uxbridge town centre.
The open plan floor plates average 26,500 sq ft. Belmont, which is located in the heart of Uxbridge town centre, has been designed to suit either a sole corporate occupier or operate as a multi-let development. The building has achieved a BREEAM Excellent certification.
The development boasts renewable energy technology, energy efficient building services, a green roof and landscaped private terraces. In addition, Belmont’s office workers will be able to benefit from the re-designed Friends Garden, adjacent to the building.
Boris Johnson said, “It’s a positive endorsement for Uxbridge that organisations such as Aviva Investors are investing long-term here. The £30 million redevelopment of Belmont into a corporate headquarters, ready for the 21st century, increases Uxbridge’s offering to corporates who want to move to West London. Plus these types of developments allow us to compete effectively with our neighbouring boroughs in terms of attracting inward investment.”
Julian Cobourne, Senior Asset Manager at Aviva Investors, said, “We are immensely proud that Belmont has recently been awarded a BREEAM excellent certification. Companies are looking for a combination of elegant, practical design with great transport links, combined with green credentials – all of which have been realised in our office scheme Belmont.”
