A 33,358 sq ft multi-let office building comprising 5 floors in the heart of London’s West End. Originally built in 1903. Units range in size from 5,000 to 9,000 sq ft and occupiers include Wallace LLP, Helsing Limited, Select Model Agency Ltd. We completed a significant refurbishment programme of three office floors in 2022, improving the EPC from a ‘D’ to a ‘B’ and obtaining BREEAM Excellent Refurbishment & Fit-out ratings for the refurbished floors.
The works included adding a new floor to the building while upgrading the lifts and common areas and building an additional roof terrace, offering excellent views over the West End. The building has been designed to be WELL Gold enabled, for example, air filters were installed to ensure superior levels of fresh, clean air, which are now delivering 30% more fresh air than minimum CIBSE guidelines. Superior lighting was fitted to provide good natural light and planting was added to cover 16% of the roof terraces on the 2nd and 5th floors in a building that previously had no external green space. These terraces provide high quality places for occupiers’ employees to meet, network and enjoy the outside. The reception area now hosts a living wall and public art has been curated within stairwells.
The property was fully let within 5 months of practical completion with achieved rents of £92.50 on the lower floors and £95 psf on the upper floors.
