Arranged in four blocks within an attractive landscaped environment, the buildings are two storey with their own self-contained entrances. Originally constructed for R&D occupation, with good floor-to-ceiling heights and solid floors, the buildings lend themselves to both office and R&D use, with the layout of the scheme allowing for both vertical and horizontal division. The Quadrant totals approximately 75,000 sq ft (6,967m 2 ) of accommodation and was originally developed with flexibility in mind, allowing for a range of occupational uses, including light assembly, R&D/lab space as well as more traditional office uses. A recent refurbishment programme has been undertaken resulting in improvements being made to both available accommodation and the built environment, with typical specifications now including new ceilings, lighting, and combined heating/cooling systems, together with comprehensive refurbishment throughout with new floor coverings and decorations; specific occupier fit-outs can be catered for, subject to terms. The scheme has enjoyed considerable success in the 14 month period leading up to this publication with in excess of 50,000 sq ft (4,645m 2 ) let or committed, including a key letting to PsiOxus Therapeutics Ltd. The Quadrant’s location allows access to a range of local amenities including the adjoining White Horse Leisure Centre, popular river walks, and Abingdon Town Centre, with its wealth of bars, restaurants, and shops. The location also allows easy access to the Cotswolds, Oxford, and Thames Valley towns, with good road and rail access. It is roughly equidistant between Oxford and Didcot Parkway mainline railway stations as well as being only 2.4 miles from the A34 Abingdon, enabling fast access to the motorway networks, airports, London, and Birmingham. Abingdon is at the heart of the UK’s growing international space cluster and Oxfordshire’s Science Vale community, which houses Europe’s largest concentration of multi-million-pound science research facilities, underpinning the county’s leading position in advanced engineering and life sciences.
