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.”

I have worked with Jeremy Symons over the past three years successfully leasing and buying property in support of my business. I continue to be very pleased with his knowledge of the market and expertise. Our relationship over this time has resulted in acquiring 20,000 sq ft at Capital Business Park in Cardiff, leasing 11,000 sq ft at Southpoint, and subsequently leasing an initial 42,000 sq ft at Parc Bedwas, followed by a succession of expansions of a further 11,000 and then 47,000 sq ft, enabling us to centralise all of our operations at Parc Bedwas in a single 100,000 sq ft facility. The acquisitions were completed at the perfect time for tenant purposes and the rent fixed throughout the term at very economical rates. A job well done.
