HB Reavis has announced plans to open the UK’s first HubHub within 20 Farringdon Street, its co-working concept which has already rolled out across Europe.
HubHub will provide four floors of high-quality space with a functional design tailored for different needs throughout the day. Flexibly designed to cater for anything from start-ups to scale-ups, the provision of agile workstations in communal areas are complemented by user-focused amenities, including a zen room, sleeping booth and game rooms. HubHub will curate a rich roster of educational events to take place in its auditorium for its members and the public, including workshops, masterclasses and panel discussions to facilitate collaboration and business growth. HubHub is already operational in Bratislava, Warsaw and Prague.
Launched by HB Reavis in June 2018, the 11-storey building comprises 85,000 sq ft of workspace that has been designed to accommodate varying business needs, offering the potential for three different leasing structures: from conventional leases, to ‘plug & play’ and the introduction of HubHub co-working space.
Only three months on from launch, leases have been agreed with NG Bailey and The Berkeley Partnership LLP. The 8th and 7th floors are also under offer, leaving only circa 15% of the total space remaining.
The Berkeley Partnership LLP is an independent management consultancy with offices in New York and London. This new lease will see them relocate their London headquarters from Chancery Lane to the 9th floor of 20 Farringdon Street. NG Bailey is a leading independent engineering, IT and facilities services business which will take the 10th and 11th floors of the Grade A office building. Both companies will benefit from the building’s central location, exceptional skyline views, outdoor terraces and state of the art security which includes facial recognition entry system.
About 20 Farringdon Street
HB Reavis has worked closely with architecture practice Denton Corker Marshall to develop a user-focused building designed to encourage staff productivity and contentment through the office environment.
20 Farringdon Street also features facial recognition technology which has been integrated into the double-height reception, enabling seamless and secure user journeys throughout the building. The “biometric identification” system facilitated by Chubb Systems and FST Biometrics will allow people to work safely in the building without the need for a pass.
Located in London’s vibrant Midtown, 20 Farringdon Street is just a short walk from Farringdon station which has excellent transport connections with Thameslink, three London Underground lines and soon to benefit from the arrival of the Elizabeth line. Situated on the Cycle Superhighway, cyclists have their own direct building entrance with excellent bicycle storage and changing facilities.
