Ben Bolton, Director of Business Space at Cooke & Arkwright commented: “This is a great new occupier for the developing Port Talbot region where the Harbourside project to redevelop the docks, the Research and Development Village, and improvements to infrastructure and communications, including Port Talbot Parkway station’s redevelopment, are raising the profile of the area and attracting technology-led investors and companies. Deryn Properties are close to completing a similar scheme on development land they secured on Baglan Energy Park nearby.”
Cooke & Arkwright’s Investment agency sold the 21 acre site, originally known as Llewellyn’s Quay, on behalf of Associated British Ports in 2006. The firm went on to provide development advice to Deryn Properties on its 25,000 sq ft office and magistrate’s court development for HM Court Services at Harbourside, and subsequently brokered the sale of the completed investment to Keills Fund Managers in 2011.
Harbourside is situated on Harbour Way, Port Talbot’s new £107m Distributor Road which connects the M4 to the Harbourside area.
