GC Motors invests £250,000 refurbishing Adam House, Ripon Way, Harrogate ready for occupation

Giles Castleton the owner of GC Motors, has completed the £250,000 refit of Adam House, a 4-storey office block adjacent to the prestige car dealership on Ripon Way, Harrogate.

The extensive refurbishment has transformed the entire property in preparation for it being offered for re-letting.

Commenting on the work, Carter Towler’s Office Agency Director Clem McDowell said: “Since Giles purchased Adam House, he had planned to extensively upgrade the building. He has now created four floors of high-quality Grade A office space and we are very much looking forward to marketing the property for him.”

“By removing the existing partitioning, upgrading all the communal facilities including toilets and kitchens, adding energy efficient lighting and air conditioning with air recirculation, this impressive, stand-alone property is now perfect for progressive businesses such as solicitors, accountants, IT and media agencies looking for additional space.”

Office suites ranging from 2,616 – 8,146 sq ft are available at Adam House which also has ample parking including electric car charging points and secure bike stores.

MD of GC Motors, Giles Castleton added: “We already own several properties on this site and when Adam House became available we were keen to add it to our portfolio. It’s a fantastic building with a great deal to offer. It’s in a great location, just a mile from Harrogate town centre, it’s very accessible by either car, bike or public transport.

“Despite the difficulties of the past couple of years we have been extremely fortunate and our businesses have continued to flourish. Our motor dealership which is one of the largest independent sports, prestige motor and 4 x 4 dealerships in the country is expanding and our property investments are going from strength to strength. We currently employ 75 people, and we are aiming to take on a further 15 in the next 12 months.”
