The Lightrooms

About The Lightrooms

The Lightrooms is a single commercial development scheme offered by GCV and delivered by Carlton & Co (“Carlton”). The Scheme will provide investors an opportunity to invest in the purchase of a single commercial development site for commercial development and sale of 14 office units in Aycliffe Business Park, County Durham.

The Lightrooms is a carbon conscious, sustainable office development with a range of work space for businesses who demand the best. The combination of energy efficient technologies and smart internal and external finishes provide an ideal cost effective base for growing SMEs.

Carlton & Co (Lightrooms) Limited (“SPV”), a special purpose vehicle, will be set up to co-invest and develop the 14 office units.

GCV is seeking to raise £0.2 million of equity investment to co-invest alongside the senior debt provider.

This investment opportunity will allow each investor to participate in this commercial development scheme (the “Project”) and share in the development profit.

The site will be acquired with the benefit of detailed planning consent and the Project is targeting a base case 1.5x multiple on money return.
