New Grade A home secured for AA

A major property deal has been negotiated that will see the AA make a multi-million pound commitment to keeping its headquarters in Basingstoke in the decades to come by moving into new offices on Basing View. The high profile company that has been synonymous with Basingstoke for over 40 years is set to leave Fanum House and move into new headquarters in Basing View, thanks to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council’s forward-thinking plan to work with property developer Abstract Securities on a 60,535 sq. ft. state-of-the-art new Grade A office building. The timescale for completion of the office, to be known as The Florence Building, is March 2018.

While other locations were considered by the AA, the availability of this new modern office space, as well as the town’s excellent transport connections, proximity to London and access to a skilled workforce secured the AA’s decision to stay in Basingstoke .

The transformational regeneration programme for Basing View is already well advanced and has seen Waitrose and John Lewis at home locate their largest combined store in the town and Network Rail open a regional campus and training hub here. This new office and the AA’s long term commitment to the town is another exciting step forward in the redevelopment of Basing View.
