Sale of former Police Station
Acting on behalf of Leicestershire Police, APB have recently completed the sale of the former Police Station on Melton Road in Leicester, to Mr B Pala.
The property, constructed in 2004 comprises a single storey office building, with ample car parking.
Will Shattock of APB commented “we were aware of the large demand of local community centres in the area, so by targeting such requirements we were able to generate an awful lot of interest”
Due to this large demand, the 349.81 sq.m (3,675 sq ft) office premises was sold by informal tender, resulting in 10 bids for the property. APB were able to secure an unconditional, cash bid for the property, and worked with the client to ensure a quick completion.
Roger Buckley of Leicestershire Police stated “we were advised by APB to engage all interested parties by calling for ‘best and final’ bids in order to achieve best value for the property. We were amazed by the level of interest this generated. We were very pleased with the outcome on the basis that we were able to proceed to completion in a timely fashion”.
APB are also involved with the sale of Police Stations in Market Bosworth and Lutterworth with a further opportunity in Oakham coming to the market shortly.
