Smithfield is prime choice for the property market

18th April 2012

Richard Susskind & Company are delighted to announce, on behalf of St Anselm Group of Companies, that we have completed on the acquisition of 13-17 Long Lane, London EC1. The freehold was purchased for £5.8 million where agents Estate Office Investments and Howell Brooks acted jointly on behalf of the vendor.

The 17,000 Sq Ft property is arranged over Lower Ground, Ground & four upper floor offices with two floors of residential accommodation above that have been sold on long leaseholds.

Long Lane is within close proximity to Smithfield Market, the oldest and most famous meat market in Europe. The lively market has been trading since the 12th century and was redesigned in the 19th century to its current recognisable structure by architect Sir Horace Jones, who also designed Billinsgate and Leadenhall markets as well as Tower Bridge. Associate Director George Wise comments,

‘’Today the City Fringe locations are attracting a plethora of different companies keen to invest in this vibrant and up and coming location. This building consists of large, open plan floor plates which are currently lacking within the EC1 market’’.

We’re really excited how this important building develops.
