Richard Susskind & Company are delighted to announce that on behalf of Hermes Investment Management we have pre-let 1 Sekforde Street, Clerkenwell Green, EC1 in its entirety to Future Cities Catapult Ltd. Comprising a total of 24,000 sq ft, the property has dramatic ceiling height and large period-style windows throughout as well as spectacular vaulted ceilings on the top floor.
Future Cities Catapult Ltd, based in the heart of London, are one of the seven ‘Catapults’ launched by the UK’s Technology Strategy Board. The plan is for 1 Sekforde Street to be transformed into an Urban Innovation Centre. Utilizing state of the art technology, the centre will be assisting leaders from all over the globe with ideas on how to improve the cities which they govern. FCC put a substantial focus on the challenge of urban integration, how cities can take a more straight-forward approach to the way they plan and operate.
FCC’s aim is to get people working together to solve real challenges faced by real cities right now and to improve quality of life, strengthen the economy and protect the environment. This is done by cities sharing what has worked for them in the past, universities and companies working together, new solutions getting to market and road testing new innovations.
