The former offices of Batchelors Solicitors were acquired in the second half of 2023 with the benefit of Permitted Development Rights to convert the offices to create 14 flats. It also incorporated 2 no. shop units whilst a further planning application for an additional 6 new build flats had been submitted (and has since been approved).
The former owners, Batchelors have since merged with Birketts LLP on who’s behalf SHW acted in identifying and negotiating terms for their new office in Sevenoaks which was successfully opened last year.
David Marcelline, Head of the SHW SE M25 Office comments: “We were delighted to negotiate the successful transfer of the Freehold interest in Charles House, and I am pleased to see development work progressing so well to revitalise the building to provide much needed new accommodation to the heart Bromley Town Centre”.
