Cooke & Arkwright is advising the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies on options to acquire 30,000 sq ft office space for new headquarters within the city centre. The school is part of Cardiff University offering graduate and post-graduate courses in international and broadcast journalism, and political communication. Currently based at the campus in Bute Building on King Edward VII Avenue, it is considering a number of potential alternative locations.

Ben Bolton, Director of Business Space comments: “Cooke & Arkwright have been instructed to work with Cardiff University to consider the long-term home of the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies. We are currently working closely together to explore all the possible options and no decisions have been made.”

Cardiff Waterside is a significant property holding for Aviva Investors at almost 500,000 sq ft. Our experiences show the benefit of working with a regional specialist where occupational markets can be unlocked with a good team with excellent local contacts. Ben Bolton and his team have done this for us for many years and been fundamental to our success and a very low void rate in Cardiff.
