The future looks optimistic for Micawber Street!

28th April 2012

Richard Susskind & Company are delighted to announce the sale of the second floor of 17 Micawber Street, N1. The 1,400 sq ft office space within an award winning canal side development has been sold by Nick Bell Design for £440,000 for a term of 995 years to Playstos Entertainment.

This property, one of five commercial units in the Micawber Wharf development, was built in 2006 by Stephen Davy Peter Smith Architects. The building is arranged over basement, ground and four upper floors. Situated on the second floor, Playstos Entertainment will enjoy the excellent views over the Wenlock Basin, a stretch of water connected to Regents Canal.

Micawber Wharf’s contemporary design and bespoke features perfectly reflect the tone of the local area which is populated by galleries and other creative enterprises. Indeed, Old Street is increasingly known as the neighbourhood associated with creative and technological industries – perfect for Playstos Entertainment who are a digital development company specializing in multi-platform games and short films. With companies such as Google, Facebook, Intel and Cisco Systems all based within walking distance from this site, this move further cements the so-called ‘Tech City’ in East London.
