The local paper, The Essex Chronicle (owned by the Daily Mail Group), like many other businesses re-organised the production of the paper and as a result needed to downsize their property holdings. Taylor & Company let space to them at Hedgerows Business park, and were then instructed to advise on the future of the old commercial headquarters on Westway in Chelmsford.
We were able to offer either a freehold sale or letting of the building. We arranged and supervised an extensive marketing campaign, which featured a video walk through of the building (the first of its kind in Essex.)
Having conducted the initial phase of marketing we identified a national company looking for such space and were able to get the property on to a short list of buildings around the UK. Further discussions resulted in the successful sale of the property to them and a very satisfactory outcome for our major UK Client.
