Prime Place to develop Sevenoaks office site into residentialGascoignes acquire site for new 31 bedroom Retirement apartment scheme for McCarthy & Stone in Godalming - October 2015

Acting on behalf of McCarthy & Stone, Gascoignes have a acquired the former Christian Science Church building in central Godalming. Planning consent has been granted for 31 x retirement apartments with communal facilities, associated parking and a replacement Church building with parking.

Commenting on the transaction, Andrew Russell Director at Gascoignes states:-s "with a rapidly ageing population there is plainly a desire amongst Retirement and Care Home Developers to provide tailored accommodation to meet the needs of those aged over 60, the proposed scheme in central Godalming offers a town centre opportunity whilst being close to open countryside, shops and amenities including Godalming main-line station whilst being readily accessible for main road access and the A3 in particular. We felt the subject site would be eminently suitable for McCarthy & Stone and following detailed and lengthy negotiations with the Vendors and their Advisers, we reached an amicable agreement whereby the vendors were given a new Church facility following demolition of the existing Church building which, it was felt was simply too large for current and anticipated congregations. Construction of the new scheme is scheduled to start next month with practical completion anticipated towards the latter part of 2016"

Prime Place to develop Sevenoaks office site into residentialGascoignes acquire new offices in Guildford for GCL Solicitors - June 2015

Gascoignes are pleased to announce the acquisition of 2nd floor office at Building 3000 Cathedral Hill Guildford, on behalf of GCL Solicitors. The offices have been built to an Institutional standard and are located on the top floor and extend to some 11,500 sq ft with 47 car spaces. The offices are arranged to provide modern open plan air conditioned offices conveniently located on the outskirts of Guildford a short distance from the Town Centre and A3.

Commenting on the move Andrew Russell Director at Gascoignes comments "The improving Economy over recent months has resulted in a marked take-up of Town Centre office stock however a lack of new Office development in the Town Centre partly due to a lack of opportunities and partly due to Permitted Development has resulted in a shortage in the supply of modern offices in the central areas, this has prompted a number of Organisations to consider moving out of Town Centre which, generally is a more cost effective option and does provides better car parking provision for staff and clients alike. We are of the view that this trend will continue until such time as stock levels improve in the Town Centre"
