The Property Manager for the New Economy, Citibase is set to provide a boost for the local business economy in High Wycombe with the opening of an impressive new flexible officing hub, providing 7,000 sq ft of flexible and affordable fully serviced office space for up to 120 SMEs, entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Occupying a prime position in the heart of the town, Citibase High Wycombe is situated in Swan House directly above the Eden Shopping Centre, the town’s premier retail destination, with all of the town’s best shopping, restaurants and amenities located on the flexible officing hub’s doorstep.
Following the recent openings of Citibase Newcastle Market Street and Citibase Manchester Salford Quays, High Wycombe is Citibase’s eighth new business centre launch in the past 12 months, reflecting a hunger from the UK business community for its flexible, fully serviced offices. The centre’s launch is reflective of the wider regeneration taking place across the town, following the redevelopment of the Buckinghamshire New University, the transformation of the National Grid gas works Lily’s Walk – set to become a residential-led mixed-use development, and the upcoming redevelopment of the former furniture factory, Leigh Court, which will provide 200 new homes.
The excellent transport links are also a major attraction. For those who want easy access around the region and beyond, High Wycombe station is just five minutes’ walk away, where fast and frequent services provide access to London Marylebone in less than thirty minutes. The main bus station is also just moments away, and commuting by road is made easy with the nearby A40 and M40, as well as plentiful parking space in the adjacent car park*. For those looking to travel further afield, Heathrow airport is just 20 miles away via the M40 and M25.
Citibase CEO Steve Jude, comments: “Citibase High Wycombe is the latest example of one of our existing Clients commissioning us to take on another management contract for one of their other vacant office spaces. We’ve proved that by transforming their underutilised buildings into thriving flexible officing hubs for SMEs, we have been able to quickly turn them into profit generating assets, and provide them with a steady cash flow as a result.
“The flexible working revolution is booming, with demand continuing to soar as SMEs increasingly turn to our low-risk, short-term contracts. The latest results of our exclusive Citibase Business Confidence Index provide concrete evidence for this, with a massive 72% of the 1,000 SMEs surveyed telling us they wanted short-term contracts of under three years. More and more smart building owners are beginning to realise that they can capitalise on this by looking to flexible officing providers like Citibase to refresh and monetise their underutilised office buildings.”
As with Citibase’s other business centres throughout the UK, Citibase High Wycombe will offer flexible, short term and affordable contracts. Suites are offered in various sizes, from one person to much larger spaces, making it ideal for businesses at every stage of their development. The centre also enjoys superfast broadband with a range of internet and telecoms packages, 24-hour access, meeting rooms as well as a friendly Concierge team offering a variety of business support services.
Citibase High Wycombe is situated at Swan House, White Hart Street, High Wycombe, HP11 2HL
