The Story So Far

Magellan House Bessemer Park Bessemer Road Welwyn
Garden City Hertfordshire

The Property This is a very modern, custom built distribution building in a great location, fronting one of the major roads on Welwyn's industrial estate/business park. It was built by local developer Hammersmatch to the occupier's specification and so has a prominent frontage and is fitted with air conditioning, heating and lighting. It totals 1,543sqm/16,610sqft and is high at 7.6m/25ft. It also has an exceptionally good car parking ratio and, a major factor, presents an imposing and important frontage to the road.

It was occupied by Nikko UK, the toy manufacturers well known for remote control motorcars and motorcycles and, less known, owners of the Meccano brand. However, well known brands and names mean nothing these days as Nikko have now gone into liquidation.

We have rebranded the building Magellan House, upgraded it and have let it to PC Disposals, a specialist computer recycling organisation. The location is about to be further improved with the construction of a trade park immediately adjacent so that Magellan House sits at the entrance to the park. More information at

Why Buy?  The Seller brought this investment to us offmarket with the price at which we could buy. We looked at the building and agreed terms the next day.

This building is in an important location in a good town where rents are currently not very demanding. The building is surrounded by much larger headquarters buildings and a trade park and so will be attractive to smaller companies wanting to present a bigger image.
