SMC Chartered Surveyors have let 17 Station Road in Upminster.
SMC acting with joint agent Stephen James, have let 17 Station Road to the Railway Children as a children’s nursery. The prime located ground floor and basement premises was previously occupied by a travel agents.
SMC acted on behalf of the landlord Etcetera Construction Services Ltd to agree a new 10 year lease. The parade also includes an Italian restaurant, hair salon, children’s charity and mobile / gadget shop. This location in the centre of Upminster is well positioned close to a number of major national names including Costa, Cafe Nero, M&S Foodhall and with good access to Upminster train and tube station which is a 2 minute walkaway.
The letting demonstrates the flexibility of the new planning use class change introduced in September 2020. The new class E planning use allows the premises to be used for the former A1 (retail), A2 (financial and professional), A3 (restaurant), B1 (offices), and D1 (clinics, health centre and day nursery) uses, without the need for a change of use.
The Railway Children are currently also located on Station Square in Gidea Park and this will be the second trading location for the business. Fitting out works are due to commence shortly with a planned opening in September 2021.
SMC and Stephen James are delighted to have completed this letting and look forward to seeing the tenants trading soon.
