We all remember the days when no one wanted to work in Shoreditch or Clerkenwell because why would you want an office with stripped floors, exposed brick and ceiling? These days, all the trend and converted warehouses are getting snapped up like a dime in a dozen. The move in trends towards converted warehouses is just one example of how tenants have changed what they are looking for. Even in a market with the demand we have tenants aren’t satisfied with a plain old suspended ceiling and blue or grey carpet interior, they want more.
Examples of this can be seen all over London, the Walkie-Talkie has a sky roof garden to give its tenants somewhere different for casual meetings and Broadgate has been designed with the flexibility to allow for exposed soffit and plant if the client wants to change the look. The main attributes of office space that seems to appeal to a variety of tenants can be seen in the iconic Shard, natural light, open floor plans, and great connectivity.
Teresa Beatty, a commercial surveyor at Morgan Pryce said “The feature of the Shard (natural light, open floor plates, and connectivity) are the foundations for a successful development, along with the flexibility for tenants to make it their own”.
Another great example of how developers are responding to the demand in non-conventional office space can be seen is the Land securities Zig Zag building, not only does a number of floors offer terraces but by using concrete rather than a steel frame it can be easily adapted to all occupiers requirements.
