Property Agency

Four in a row for landlord and web design company

A Peterborough property agent and its landlord client are marking the fourth successive property letting in a decade to the same city-based web design and marketing company whose property requirements have grown in tandem with the business’s success.

As the agent acting on behalf of the private landlord client, Eddisons incorporating Barker Storey Matthews, whose office is on Thorpe Road, has recently let a 3,740 sq ft unit at Papyrus Road to Geek Designs who will move in to the new premises before the end of the year (2020).

The agent and the same landlord have helped Geek Designs with each of their property moves into larger premises.

The web design company’s commercial premises started with a 350 sq ft shared office in the Peterborough city centre, followed by a move to their own 540 sq ft premises at Tesla Court then expansion into a 1,350 sq ft office at Papyrus Road and now into their new, larger offices on the same development.

Ian Bridgestock, Director and Co-Owner of Geek Designs, commented, “We have seen a steady growth over the past eight years. Not only have we seen this as a business, but also within the city.

“Year on year, we have watched new companies establish themselves in Peterborough, and it is clear to see the city is thriving.

“Consequently, as Geek Designs has grown, it has been a natural progression for us to expand our team and office space.”

According to Julian Welch, who has worked with both landlord and tenant on all four lettings, the property moves of Geek Designs this past decade are typical of many Peterborough businesses whose first move is often from a home-office base.

He commented, “It is always gratifying to chart the business success of any SME (small to medium enterprise) and see this reflected in such companies’ increased property requirements as they grow from strength to strength in the city.

“This is not an uncommon story on Peterborough’s business scene.

“Additionally, what is of note in this instance, is that our client – the landlord – has been a constant feature too in the company’s property moves and growth in meeting their successive requirements for larger premises from his Peterborough property portfolio.

“This latest letting transaction at Papyrus Road is a testament to the benefits of an ongoing three-way working relationship between all parties – landlord, tenant and agent.”
