expoffice-2

Anton Page have this week brought the first floor at 140-142 St. John’s Street to the market. A  former Clerkenwell warehouse turned newly refurbished office suite, the first floor here is available to rent and retains several original features as well as integrating modern style.

The office is open plan and has been comprehensively refurbished and fitted out with a brand new air conditioning unit and kitchen. The  warehouse features, which give the space a sense of character, include original timber floors, high ceilings and excellent natural light. Along with this, there are new modern light fittings, a passenger lift, bike storage and showers.

Being situated on the east side of St. John’s Street, in the crux of Clerkenwell, the building is central to a thriving district, benefiting from a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, bars, boutique shops and hotels. The area is very business-driven and there are also many high profile occupiers in the neighbourhood, as well as a plethora of start-ups.

What to expect from the up and coming Redevelopment of Old Street

old-street-2

Old Street Roundabout is a staple to Tech City and is often referred to as Silicon roundabout, a nod to Silicon Valley in San Francisco, which also has an infamous reputation of housing an enormously high volume of digital/tech/creative companies.

In hopes of keeping up with the regeneration of Shoreditch, plans have been approved to convert the roundabout to a pedestrian and bike-friendly zone, transforming Silicon Roundabout into somewhat of a Silicon Square. We can also expect an improved entrance to Old Street station, complete with a public area surrounded by plants and pleasant seating and more notably, brand new cycle lanes. These improvements are much to the delight of locals and those who work in the area as safety is at the forefront of all ideas. An influx of pop-up shops aimed at boosting popularity and a sense of ‘high street’ is also on the way to the roundabout.

Along with this, several high profile occupiers are moving to and around the area. For example Amazon’s arrival a in the last few years brought approximately 3,000 jobs to Shoreditch and similarly, Air BnB, LK Bennett and Google Campus are long withstanding neighbours.

Other glimpses of redevelopment are clear around Old Street as there have also been plans to increase internet speed to suit the demands of start-ups, and to the north and the west, both Kings Cross St Pancras and Farringdon stations are undergoing great change with the arrival of Crossrail and other new development schemes.

Altogether, Old Street is set for a complete revamp at its core and with a completion date set for 2018, it couldn’t come soon enough!

London office take ups unaffected by Brexit!

With the lead up to the British EU Referendum vote in June, most predicted that business occupiers would desert the capital and the price of office rents would take a dive if it was decided we were to leave. However, now post Brexit, there has been zero evidence that the office market has felt any effect.

In a detailed article by Property Week (click here to view), it has been revealed that a vast majority of development schemes will continue to be carried out. Similarly, vacancy levels in the City have shown to be at record lows of 6.2% and are as low as 2.3% in other London areas.

It has been steady business as usual here at Anton Page – supply is still widely in demand, stock levels are tight and rents are continuing to be competitive. We have continued to introduce several new instructions of varying sizes and specifications, all of which can be found here.
