A new office letting in one of Cardiff’s premier leisure quarters has been completed by Cooke & Arkwright’s Business Space team. The fourth floor at 10/11 Mill Lane has been leased to Maximus UK Services Ltd, a global supplier of end-to-end health and employment services.

Mill Lane is a vibrant city centre location close to St David’s 2 and The Hayes. It is well known for its cafés, bars and restaurants, and is just two minutes’ walk from Cardiff Central train and bus stations, and Central Square, home of BBC Wales.

Mark Siddons, Associate with Cooke & Arkwright said, “10/11 Mill Lane is an attractive period building which has recently been extensively refurbished, while retaining many original features. A unique working environment has been created, with all the city centre amenities on the doorstep.

“The landlord is currently refurbishing the third floor of the building, providing a range of office suites from 150 to 1,500 sq ft, which will be ready for occupation in Q2 this year.”

Cooke & Arkwright have been providing rating valuation advice to The Welsh Rugby Union Limited (“WRU”) and Millennium Stadium plc for many years. They were recently successful in achieving substantial reductions in the assessments of the Millennium Stadium, covering both the 2005 and 2010 rating list. These negotiated reductions yielded savings of c.£3.5m which, crucially, allows the WRU to re-invest in rugby throughout Wales. They advise the WRU across the group portfolio including the National Centre of Excellence in the Vale of Glamorgan. The valuation issues across the WRU portfolio are complex requiring a high level of understanding of the funding and finances of professional sport in Wales. Cooke & Arkwright’s experience and understanding of these issues and application to the rating valuation have yielded these substantial negotiated reductions. The WRU and the Millennium Stadium entrust our work to organisations with the required levels in experience and expertise in dealing with these complex issues. I am glad to say we have this expertise in Wales. I would have no hesitation in recommending ratepayers making use of this Welsh based expertise.
