The joint venture between Landid and Brockton Capital has reached agreement with three major occupiers to take space in the partnership’s landmark 240,000 sq ft office development in Uxbridge town centre.
Global tech firm TraceLink, which provides a digital platform for pharmaceutical businesses to track and trace products throughout their supply chain, has agreed to take 8,500 sq ft on the ground floor of the building.
TraceLink is joined by tech startup Jazz Networks, which is utilising Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to provide data security solutions. The Uxbridge-based business has taken 4,500 sq ft in the building.
Flexible workspace provider Spaces has also agreed to take 20,000 sq ft on the ground floor, bringing an innovative new workspace offering to the Uxbridge area that will foster a buzzing community of startups, small and micro businesses and larger businesses in need of additional space in the town.
The lettings come as Caffé Kix opens its doors on the ground floor of the building, providing occupiers and the local community with great coffee and food in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Chris Hiatt, Landid Director, said: “The Charter Building brings a completely new kind of design-led contemporary office space to Uxbridge and it’s fantastic that these four dynamic businesses have signed up. The pioneering workspace has been designed to meet the demands of modern businesses and we are very excited about our first occupiers moving in and bringing the building to life, with more to come in the coming months.”
Tony Edgley, Partner at Brockton Capital LLP, said: “The Landid/Brockton partnership is focused on developing fresh contemporary workplaces that meet the needs of the next generation of savvy occupiers, helping them to attract and retain talent. The Charter Building is a great example of this and brings together a stunning workspace design along with great connectivity, service, sustainability and value, within an amenity rich, urban setting.”
Developed speculatively by the Landid /Brockton JV, The Charter Building, which completed earlier this year, is the largest office development in Uxbridge and one of the largest new office buildings in London and the South East.
The building has been designed to foster collaboration, co-working and creativity and brings an entirely new kind of vibrant workplace to Uxbridge. The project, designed by dn-a architects, saw the original building, which was once the UK headquarters for Coca Cola, completely stripped back to its structural frame. The floorplates were extended and a new penthouse floor with access to a roof terrace has been added.
The new building features ceiling heights up to four metres, vast one-acre floorplates and a voluminous central atrium, as well as a 100m internal ‘street’ that runs from north to south through the ground floor, acting as a dynamic breakout area.
Work on The Charter Building began in 2015 and brought over 1,600 jobs to Uxbridge, including six apprentices who were honoured at the topping out ceremony last year.
