Brown & Co Barfords has today announced the letting of two new business suites in the historic Shorts Building located in New Cardington near Shortstown, Bedford and is calling for one final business to join them.

Suite A has recently been let to a premier aesthetic laser and equipment service and repair business. Having been in business since 2000, the move to New Cardington highlights continued growth for the business, alongside a preference to locate the business in a more central location within the UK.

Suite B has additionally been let to an American clothing company, specialising largely in sports and leisure wear and provides a convenient and more affordable location outside of the capital. The office provides the business with easy access to London in order to maintain and monitor their business within in the UK.

The Shorts Building has an incredible history which has attracted many businesses to the property. Built in 1917, the property has been involved in a variety of historic events and projects including WW2 and the development of the early airship. With the redevelopment of RAF Cardington, the Shorts Building has seen its aging interior refurbished to restore the building to its former glory for new generations to utilise.  Now home to both residential flats and commercial offices, the building will continue to thrive supporting today’s Shortstown community.

Brown & Co Barfords continues to market a single suit that is still available to let:

Suite C, The Shorts Building, The Highway, New Cardington, Bedford, MK42 0UR is a ground floor office suite located conveniently near the A421 Bedford bypass. The suite measures 490 sq ft, and includes exclusive parking spaces nearby. The suite benefits from a range of uses including A2, B1 and D1, making it ideal for professional, business related and non-residential usage.

The recently let suites at The Shorts Building reflect the growth in business East Anglia has seen over the last few months.

Speaking about the news, Commercial Property Negotiator at Brown & Co Barfords James Price said: "We are thrilled to see these properties get snapped up in this renovated building with a fantastic history and wish the businesses all the best in their new office location. We are delighted to present the final suite available at New Cardington; the perfect space for a small business looking for a dedicated office in a convenient and rejuvenated location”.

The letting of commercial property is a core part of the Brown & Co Barfords offering; with its commercial agency team benefiting from significant experience and expertise in selling and letting commercial premises and land throughout Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.
