Landid has reached agreement with multi-national technology company Insight Enterprises to take 18,500 sq ft at The Charter Building in Uxbridge for its new London hub.
The company will relocate its London-based operations from The Atrium building in Uxbridge to The Charter Building, taking space on the 4th floor of the 240,000 sq ft workspace. Insight will bring over 200 employees to The Charter Building when it moves into the building in the summer of 2020.
Insight joins other occupiers including global coffee giant Lavazza, multi-national tech firm TraceLink, tech startup Jazz Networks, and flexible workspace provider Spaces, which is fostering a buzzing community of startups, small and micro businesses and larger Uxbridge businesses in need of additional space.
Caffé Kix is also operating on ground floor of the building, providing occupiers and the local community with great coffee and food in a relaxed and friendly environment.
James Silver, Landid Managing Director, said: “The Charter Building brings a completely new kind of design-led contemporary office space to Uxbridge and it’s fantastic that Insight has agreed to join the other dynamic business that have already made the building their home. The pioneering workspace has been designed to meet the demands of modern businesses in a location that offers occupiers fast connections to Heathrow and central London, as well quick access to strategic road links connecting the wider UK.”
Developed by Landid, The Charter Building is the largest new office development in Uxbridge and was one of the largest new office buildings in London and the South East when in completed in November 2017. The developer says the building has been designed to foster collaboration, co-working and creativity.
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 was added. The new building features ceiling heights up to four metres, flexiible floorplates and a voluminous central atrium, as well as a 100m internal ‘street’ that runs from north to south through the ground floor. The ‘street’ acts as a dynamic breakout area, encouraging serendipitous encounters, co-working and collaboration and will enable occupiers to meet clients, brainstorm with colleagues over a coffee from the onsite barista, or simply refocus outside their main office setting.
