Romulus has completed the letting of 45,000 sq ft of offices to Hammersmith & Fulham Council at 3 Shortlands, in Hammersmith, a deal which included the fit out of the space.
There is 3,000 sq ft still unlet at the building which Romulus bought in 2016 and has since significantly refurbished. Other tenants include Love Holiday (26,250 sq ft), Formula E (16,250 sq ft), Bullion Vault (3,500 sq ft) and Jac Travel (3,000 sq ft).
Romulus’s coworking brand, Huddle, also has space in the building.
Romulus says that over the last year it has secured 129,278 sq ft of new lettings which account for approximately 40% of all take-up within Hammersmith town centre.
Alex Woolf at Romulus, said: “We are seeing increased demand for fitted-space solutions across our portfolio. Three of our last five lettings have involved us customising workspaces for our clients and we’re seeing an uptick in requests for our managed services such as high-speed internet, maintenance and many more. This makes the entire process easier for the occupier.”
Romulus has recently launched its new ‘CustomBuild’ initiative across its portfolio of offices in Hammersmith, Fulham, the City of London and West End.
It explained: “CustomBuild packages are designed around the needs of occupiers, enabling companies to choose exactly what they want as part of a simple financial deal; from fit out and furniture, through to internet and managed services. By offering this service Romulus is making the process more efficient and mitigating the significant up-front relocation costs for occupiers.”
Tim Brook of Romulus, continued: “Over the last 12 months we have significantly increased our market share of lettings in Hammersmith which we believe is a result of being able to offer ultimate flexibility and respond to exactly what modern businesses require from their landlords. Through CustomBuild we are taking the flexibility and ease of coworking and combining it with bespoke design to provide branded, private space for our customers.”
