Chiswick Park, asset managed by Blackstone, has secured Danone as its first tenant for Building 7, the new 334,000 sq ft building completed in September 2015.
Danone is establishing a new London headquarters at Chiswick Park, agreeing a 10 year lease for 42,000 sq ft of office space and will occupy part of the 5th and the 6th floors of Building 7 at the 33-acre Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners-designed business park.
Chiswick Park is home to over 8,000 employees from some of the world’s best known brands, including Discovery, PepsiCo, Aker Solutions and Starbucks.
Danone’s move will create two UK bases for the business, at Chiswick Park and in Trowbridge, Wiltshire, bringing together Danone’s three consumer facing businesses on one site in Chiswick.
Ed Hodgson, Director for Blackstone Property Management, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Danone to Chiswick Park. The company represents a perfect fit for the park and sets a benchmark for the calibre of companies we expect to attract to Building 7. We look forward to Danone joining the group of market leading brands already based on site.”
James Mayer from Danone said, “We have chosen Chiswick Park as the new location for one of our two UK head office sites because of the synergies between our business culture and Enjoy-Work’s ethos that if people enjoy work, they work better. Our new, custom-designed offices will ensure that we continue to encourage creativity, an entrepreneurial spirit and offer greater opportunities to collaborate as we grow our UK business.”
