Children’s charity Nelsons Journey’s move to the Octagon Business Park and further new speculative office developments on the site herald exciting times and smiles all around for this unique commercial hub, a rural idyll, just a stone’s throw from Norwich city centre.
Nestled between the villages of Little and Great Plumstead, the Octagon Business Park is a 38,000 ft² commercial development built around the unique Grade II Listed Octagon Barn and set in 25 acres of unspoilt parkland. Organisations that have already taken up residence benefit from the peace and tranquillity of the countryside location, combined with stunning high-tech sustainable offices with all mod-cons. The units feature contemporary bespoke design mixed with green oak timbers and traditional materials, which perfectly complement the surrounding environment. There is a network of local cycle tracks surrounding the development and plenty of parking all conveniently located only 1 mile away from the A47 southern bypass, and 5 miles from Norwich City Centre.
Colin Lang MBE, CEO of charity Nelsons Journey comments “We looked at many options for our relocation. As a children’s charity dedicated to supporting bereaved young people throughout Norfolk, it was very important to us to find offices that were accessible across the region and offered a safe and serene haven for children that are going through difficult times and for our highly valued support staff and volunteers. The Octagon business park perfectly suits our needs; a beautiful rural setting with plenty of space to get away from it all neatly combined with modern, state-of-the- art facilities, which we have named ‘Smiles House’.”
And there really is lots to smile about at the Octagon Business Park a further sale of the speculatively built space to be announced shortly, and the marketing launch of Octagon House, a 7,200 sq ft headquarters office building now underway.
