Workspace keeps on growing

The rising popularity of co-working has resulted in a bumper start to the year for Workspace, the London-headquartered flexible office provider.

Lambeth-headquartered Workspace saw customer demand remain strong during the first quarter of the year with enquiries averaging 1,055 per month between 30 April and 30 June.

The company also completed two significant acquisitions during the quarter in Fitzrovia, W1 and Moorgate, EC2, adding 333,000 sq ft of lettable space to its offering at a total cost of £257m.

The Record Hall, a new 58,000 sq ft flagship business centre in Holborn, EC1, also opened its doors in May and was 50% let by the end of June 2017.

Workspace CEO Jamie Hopkins said: "Workspace has had a very busy and successful start to the new financial year with robust demand from customers confirming the attractiveness of our flexible offer to an increasingly wide range of businesses.

“We have continued to expand and upgrade our property portfolio with two exciting acquisitions and the opening of a new business centre in the quarter."
