[21 JUL 98] SHORTLAND HORNE PRESS RELEASE
Shortland Horne Sells Former BBC Radio Site

Coventry estate agent and commercial property surveyor Shortland Horne had to be on the right wavelength to complete a unique city centre sale.

The firm has sold the former BBC Coventry and Warwickshire radio headquarters in Warwick Road to a local investment company, which has agreed a 20-year lease with Healthcall plc.

Healthcall, which operates an out-of-hours GP deputising service, will also be offering physiotherapy and optical services when it moves into the 8,347 sq ft building from its Queen’s Road base.

Shortland Horne’s senior commercial surveyor Paul Beesley said:

"Because of the way the building was laid out with a newsroom and separate studios meant we had to find exactly the right client.

"Anyone who wanted to use the whole building as general office would have been faced with considerable costs reconverting the property. New tenants Healthcall, however, will use the former studios as consulting room and the news floor as their control room.

"The BBC had fitted out the building to the highest standard and it couldn’t be more perfect for Healthcall. Fortunately our local knowledge allowed us to put the purchaser and building together."

The investment company has paid the asking price of 450,000 for the three storey, Georgian-fronted property, which comes with 16 car parking spaces.

The BBC has relocated to new state-of-the-art studios in the city centre.

Shortland Horne was joint agent with Lambert Smith Hampton.
