The year is drawing to a close and Santa has started packing his sleigh – but he’s not the only one bearing gifts this season. Over in London, we’re putting the finishing touches to – count ‘em – four new locations across the capital, with even more set to follow in 2020. With a million sq ft of coworking space in the UK, and almost 100,000sq ft in London alone, there’s a Spaces to suit everyone.
First up in Q1 is Spaces Baker Street, just a hop, skip and a jump away from the home of Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous creation. Thankfully, you won’t need any detective skills to locate the best office space in Baker Street: simply head to number 83 from March to enjoy all the design-driven dedicated desks and meeting rooms you can shake your houndstooth deerstalker at, plus super-fast Wi-Fi throughout the premises. There’s even a rooftop terrace for warmer weather, and the central location puts you a stone’s throw from all the goodies of Marylebone village in one way and excellent transport links in the other.
Coworking in London takes it up a notch with Spaces Cannon Street, which is set to open right in the heart of the City in Q2. Bookended by the churchyard of St Paul’s Cathedral to the west and Monument to the east, Cannon Street is one of the longest in London – and a storied part of its medieval history. Nestled away in between high finance and high buildings, the classic façade gives not a hint of the supercharged Spaces inside: it boasts everything you’ve come to expect from a fully serviced flexspace belonging to our brand, and the eponymous train station is close at hand too. For serviced offices in Cannon Street, look no further.
Anyone looking for meeting rooms in Liverpool Street would be well-advised to check out another Q2 opening, conveniently situated right next to a major transport hub. Spaces Liverpool Street Station is hidden behind the imposing Victorian structure of New Broad Street House, yet inside is anything but past it. Refitted and rewired to exacting standards, the office infrastructure is a decidedly 21st-century affair and the premises have been smartly designed to combine the beauty of the old with the best of the new. Add a choice of three nearby Tube stations and many more options for dining and drinking at Broadgate Circus, and there’s everything for a full, fun day right on your doorstep.
For a virtual office in Canary Wharf, how does an address along the lines of 25 Cabot Square sound? For anyone in the fintech and startup world, this is somewhere that puts you in the middle of the action – albeit virtually. Call-taking and mail-handling come as standard, and there’s also the option of a physical space to call home for five days a month with Virtual Office Plus. Should you wish to put down proper roots (with no commitment), it’s worth remembering that a number of outdoor terraces are ready and waiting for you to take in the skyline views – along with 300 premium restaurants and shops just a stone’s throw away.
As our December snapshot shows, coworking space in London is on a roll – and there’s more to come in the months to follow. Design-conscious working environments that are built to encourage productivity and inspire creativity in equal measure, each premises is a unique interpretation of the building it occupies. At the same time, each is stacked with the same creature comforts, work hacks and architectural nods you’ll recognise from Spaces, wherever you are in the world. It’s a better way to work, we think you’ll agree.
London, there’s even more coming. Keep an eye on our locations page to keep tabs on upcoming locations.
