MCR Property Group acquires prime commercial site in Swindon

MCR Property Group has acquired a 43,000 sq. ft. commercial property on Farnsby Street in Swindon.

The five-storey building is currently 70% occupied by local businesses, with the Manchester and London-based developer seeking to let the remaining available space.

Prospective tenants will benefit from being on the doorstep of the town’s high street and less than half a mile from Swindon rail station. Queen’s Park is also within walking distance.

Swindon boasts excellent commuter and transport links, with Bristol, Oxford and Bath all reachable by train in under 40 minutes. London is less than one hour away, with a planned high-speed rail link set to decrease this to just 45 minutes.

Harry Ladds, asset manager at MCR Property Group, said: “Wiltshire Court is a great addition to MCR Property Group’s growing portfolio in the South. Thanks to its convenient location and easy access to nearby cities, Swindon is an extremely sought-after place to do business.

“Our high-quality, contemporary offices are ideally situated close to local amenities and green areas. We are confident that the remaining space in this key commercial outlet will prove popular with local companies.”

MCR Property Group purchased Wiltshire Court in May 2019 for £3million. The developer’s portfolio in Swindon also boasts 200 homes across three residential schemes; Guild House, Electra House and Alexander House.
