August 2018 - Costar
Campbell Gordon have relocated to riverside offices at the top of Reading Bridge House, after 40 years at 50 Queens Road and one of the adjoining buildings.
The company has moved to the 9th floor of the landmark building where they also act as letting agents.
Reading Bridge House, owned by VC 3, is now 85% let following recent lettings to Blue Array, Ascot Lloyd and Campbell Gordon. These transactions follow an overhaul of the reception/entrance arrangements and an upgrade of the Cafe, which is operated by local artisanal coffee specialist – Lincoln Coffee House.
Keith Wise, Director, Campbell Gordon said: “Having worked on Queens Road for some 29 years this move was not taken lightly. But there have been so many exciting changes in the Thames Valley market during this period we knew there was a great chance for us to take advantage of these changes and practice what we preach.”
Duncan Campbell, Director, Campbell Gordon said: “This is a really big change for the business. We hope this will enable us to be one of the very best, market leading independent firms for at least another 40 years.”
Steve Pope at Berkeley Estates London, the managing agents for owners – VC 3, said: “We are delighted to have completed this transaction with the building’s own letting agents, Campbell Gordon and this underlines the attraction of Reading Bridge House to occupiers.”
Campbell Gordon was established 40 years ago by Ian Campbell. Keith Wise and Duncan Campbell completed a management buyout of the business in 2015. Their head office is in Reading, with a satellite office on the Southbank, London.
