Fairways Business Park in Livingston has seen five lettings concluded during 2020, defying tough market conditions experienced by office landlords with people working from home.

Health and home care services company Lucerne Scotland has just secured the first floor of 3 Deer Park Avenue on a five-year lease, while facilities management company Enertech FM has taken the ground floor on a three-year lease.

Earlier in the year the Edinburgh Driveway Company leased the ground floor of 2 Deer Park Avenue and Tomra, a vending recycle company headquartered in Norway, leased the ground floor of 1 Deer Park Avenue.

Existing occupier Cesscon Decom has expanded its presence in the business park, leasing space in 9 Deer Park Ave for a further five years.

Fife-based owner JW Muir (Property Investments) undertook an extensive refurbishment project in advance of the lettings.

Property director William McAlister said: “Since lockdown restrictions were relaxed in the summer, we have welcomed four new occupiers to Fairways Business Park and overseen the expansion of a valued existing tenant within the estate.”

Joint letting agent and associate Cameron Whyte of Ryden added: “Unlike the previous recession which severely impacted out-of-town office locations such as Livingston, this pandemic seems to be having the opposite effect as the attraction of city centre amenities is currently less appealing to occupiers.”

Ryden is the joint letting agent for the park, alongside CBRE.
