APM Property Consultants has made outstanding progress during its first 12 months of operation claims Richard Douglas, managing director, who set up the company with Patrick Maher as part of the Avanta Group of companies in January 2010.
“Our aim was to bridge the gap between long term conventional leases and serviced office space as there’s a vacuum in the commercial property to let market that’s been created by a mis-match between supply and what potential occupiers actually need. As a result, we’ve been very successful at achieving our goal and are now actively marketing more than 190,000 sq ft across 16 different locations, the majority of which are in the City and the West End.
“We recently let 10,000 sq ft of surplus space at King Street, SW1, on behalf of a client that faced a challenging short term lease disposal, with approximately two years remaining. APM negotiated a sub-lease for the full term on an all-inclusive basis to the British Institute of Technology and eCommerce (BITE). This deal achieved substantial cost-savings for the client and, at the same time, solved a requirement for BITE to find a turn-key managed office deal that included fit-out.
“Such deals confirm there’s a healthy market for businesses seeking commercial property accommodation for one to five years and for between 20-100 people. This is a perfect match for buildings on which the lease only has a few years to run, yet are currently sitting empty.
“We are delighted with the progress that we have made during the past 12 months and with a number of exciting deals on the table we are looking forward to 2011. We also plan to double the size of our portfolio during the coming year as well as securing more medium term space for commercial tenants.”
