Not one but two Signature by Regus sites mark a gamechanger for flexible working in the British capital
London, New York and Tokyo are names that just trip off the tongue as being synonymous with a successful and vibrant global financial sector – so it’s no surprise that two of Regus’s new flagship facilities, which is located right in the heart of the English capital’s financial district, are generating such a huge buzz.
As you’d expect from Signature by Regus, the first office at 100 Bishopsgate is pretty special. It’s a unique flexible-office space in London that within the hugely impressive 100 Bishopsgate tower; the second office next door at No15 St Helen’s Place enjoys a classic London look, and both linked by the landscaped courtyard at Clark’s Place.
For those looking for a new coworking space in London, it couldn’t be better for anyone wanting to be in the heart of the City while also just a stone’s throw away from fantastic transport links. With a stunning view of the iconic Gherkin, it’s just a couple of minutes’ walk to Liverpool Street Underground and five minutes from Moorgate train station.
“Tonnes of passion has gone into ensuring the two adjoining centres have stunning views of the city and the beautiful façade of St Helens represents a flagship of excellence,” says Area Sales Manager Mark Boardman. “The offices are stylish and sophisticated, and are designed to inspire and impress. St Helen’s Place is seen as one of the most desirable private gated streets in London and offers a touch of class.”
Highlighting a range of impressive features for people looking for coworking in St Helens Place, including cycle storage, showers, meeting rooms, communal areas and phone booths (plus coffee at the on-site barista), Boardman says the site is already proving hugely popular with a range of clients, and not just the financial sector either.
“We are receiving many enquiries across all industries besides finance; legal, recruitment, tech and marketing as well as SMEs and start-ups. Businesses that want to work in a collaborative space and join our large network of diverse clientele,” he says. “The environment is professional, inspiring and collaborative, creating communities and great networking opportunities.”
As well as the location of this luxury office space in London being a draw, changing working practices and convenience are also proving to be a huge plus for would-be tenants. Boardman highlights the location close to major train stations, as well as the flexibility of being able to add or remove desks when needed, as big boons for business. “Many corporates are now taking up space to give them the ability to scale up and down and create their own office suiting their business personality,” he states.
It’s not only the appeal of the building itself but also the location close to amenities right at the very epicentre of the financial world. Tenants coworking in St Helens Place can pick up a bite to eat or a coffee at the nearby Café Nero or take a client to lunch at the Duck & Waffle, open 24 hours.
To stretch their legs at lunchtime, they can take a stroll to Finsbury Circus and its surrounding garden (10 minutes’ walk from the centre), while history buffs can check out One Moorgate Place and surviving parts of the London Wall all within a 15-minute walk.
With the rapid advancement of flexible working, the model is no longer seen as purely the domain of the start-up and the tech company, with more mainstream organisations getting onboard with what Boardman calls a workspace revolution. “This ongoing trend for workspace-as-a-service is well underway, with continued strong growth. We’re only really at the beginning of what our market could look like in the future, though IWG is at the heart of what lies ahead.”
The two new Signature by Regus sites opened on the 20th January, with 31st March lined up for the full opening. For more information about these coworking openings in central London, find out more
