Commercial Properties

Christopher Thomas act across the breadth of commercial property in Windsor and are at the pulse of the market in terms of immediate supply, we also develop longer term relationships and have knowledge of both on and off market opportunities. In addition to the centre, the town extends further to the west with neighbourhood shopping parades and industrial estates which are also popular.

Here are a few examples and you will find more current Windsor commercial property availability on our web site


Rental Tones

With the advent of conversion to residential apartments under permitted development rights, supply of town centre office stock has shrunk by approximately 130,000 sq.ft. This has pressurised office rents which although low when compared to Central London, are amongst the highest in The Thames Valley. We work hard for landlords and occupiers alike, we have attracted some major brand names and corporates to the town and based on our expertise are involved with the majority of the larger business premises.

24,000 sq.ft. of new offices at York House Windsor, let to 5 new occupiers. More becoming available and registration is open, sizes from circa 1,500 to 6,000 sq.ft.

Similarly in the retail sector we act for many owners and tenants in the High StreetPeascod Street and Windsor Yards (Kings Edward Court) prime schemes as well as those along St Leonards Road and Victoria Street. Rents have varied with some decline against the last peak in 2015 / 2016. As we have a close understanding of micro specific influencers in the town’s retail footfall and are highly respected by both landlords and tenants we act on letting advice, also on lease renewal and rent review matters.

West Windsor (Dedworth) performs well having a great local catchment. The neighbourhood parades are always in strong demand and the limited industrial warehouse stock, now primarily at The Vansittart Estate and Fairacres, are also in high demand with limited availability at any one time.

Faircares Industrial Estate – a new scheme is coming through with unit sizes of 4,000 sq.ft. plus. which we are just starting to market.

Prime Locations

As the town provides such excellent facilities it is difficult to place any one area above the other as they each have their own appeal and are in a great setting. The office stock is generally within walking distance of either or both railway stations. The prime retail sector thrives on tourism although with underlying local demand and anchor retailers, for example, Boots, Waitrose and the family department store, Daniels.

Views along Peascod Street (in medieval times a hillside field of peas, hence the name – peas cod). Christopher Thomas pre-let the new balconied top floor offices at Vista on the corner of William Street and Peascod Street at a headline rent of £39 per sq.ft. The second photo shows the rooftop view.
