Acting on behalf of the DAR Lighting Ltd, Drake Commercial has successfully acquired a new showroom and trade counter facility, comprising part of the former Antelope Garage premises at Swan Close, Banbury.

DAR has leased the 8,500 sq ft premises from Cherwell District Council on a 5 year lease term.

Tony Drake, who acted for DAR commented:- “This former Nissan car dealership and petrol filling station was in a sorry state when we first looked at it but the main workshop premises and showroom suited DAR’s purposes, subject to a programme of refurbishment being undertaken by both landlord and tenant.  It’s been a long process but certainly kept the property professionals busy with surveyors, solicitors, property consultants and construction teams on both sides – we got there in the end!”

DAR have been located in Banbury for a number years and this new facility adds to their already significant presence in the area.
