Recently, OfficingToday reported on the expansion plans of Landmark Plc – now, the London-based supplier of flexible workspace has announced its acquisition of a new location, which marks #6 in their portfolio and the company’s first foray into the West End, with more to come…
Landmark Plc, the leading provider of premium rated serviced offices in the City of London, is expanding into the West End for the first time.
A deal has been signed for two floors at 48 Dover Street, London W1, providing Landmark with 15,329 sq ft of high-quality office space in the heart of Mayfair.
Landmark was advised by GM Real Estate.
Landmark Plc, which was established in 2000, already has five serviced office centres in iconic City buildings: Heron Tower, Old Broad Street, Lombard Street, Royal Mint Court and Holland House, opposite the Gherkin Piazza.
Richard Gill, managing director of Landmark, says: “This is our first centre outside the City and marks the beginning of our ‘West End Group’ which we aim to grow to mirror the success of the City Group. Because of our strong track record, we have been presented with some exciting opportunities and Dover Street meets our criteria for contemporary, boutique offices in a highly accessible location.
“The company’s large investment in staff over the last 18 months has resulted in a great team and a strong organisational structure to support growth plans.”
Kerry Evans, business development manager at Jones Lang LaSalle, adds: “The West End is currently experiencing limited availability of high-end office space and there haven’t been any new serviced office centres in the area for quite some time. Landmark’s entry in this much-in-demand location should therefore be welcomed.
“Having placed clients into the Landmark Plc city portfolio and been given excellent feedback on the product and service they have received, we are confident that Landmark will replicate this at their new West End site.”
Interior design and fit out company M+A London will create space to accommodate 220 workstations at 48 Dover Street over a six-week fit out ahead of a launch date for the new serviced office centre of November 2013. In keeping with Landmark’s first-class service ethos, clients will also have access to three meeting rooms and breakout areas, kitchens on both floors, cycle racks, changing facilities and basement parking.
