CLERKENWELL ROAD REFURBISHMENT

20th November 2014

Richard Susskind & Company are delighted to announce that on behalf of our client David de Groot & Co we have recently let over 8,500 sq ft at 67 Clerkenwell Road, London, EC1 5BL.

Associate Director Dan Cohen says “The brief was to reposition the building in the market, and after working closely with our client, we provided advice on the latest market trends for our client to come up with a product with which we are all proud. The rents in the building were previously in the 20s psf and these have now more than doubled for the recent lettings.”

A significant part of the transformation is a new entrance hall which includes copper finishes, contemporary flooring and a unique custom made reception desk. The new signage, branding and higher ceilings add to the creative look. The first floor east and the whole second floor underwent an extensive refurbishment with the aim of exposing much of the original features. Our client removed the suspended ceilings, partitioning and carpet flooring replaced them with high end finishes. This included wood flooring, suspended lighting and new WCs in order to create high end media style offices.

Most recently we have let the 1st Floor West, comprising a total of 2,426 sq ft, to Ichi Limited. This company, established in the summer of 2009, is an agency with entertainment in its blood, digital in its heart and a desire to create work that works. They have two vibrant homes, one in London and one in Los Angeles.

We have also let 1st Floor East, comprising a total of 1,500 sq ft, to Futureboard Consulting Ltd. The company is an international HR consulting group that helps organisations to maximise the potential of their employees.

The 2nd Floor, comprising a total of 4,000 sq ft, has been let to DMJ Recruitment Ltd. DMJ specialise in five key recruitment areas – legal private practice, in-house legal, legal support, legal mergers and company secretarial.

The 4th Floor, comprising a total of 669 sq ft was let to Concorde Capital Limited. They are a leading investment company which was founded in 2004. They provide a full range of investment banking, asset management services and brokerage.

With an impressive refurbishment, including new reception area, common parts and a more prominent look on Clerkenwell Road, we are sure all of the new tenants will enjoy their exciting new office spaces.

One of Adaptavist’s most popular products is the ThemeBuilder plugin. This product allows organisations to customise the user interface of Atlassian Confluence. Their Umbrella SSO product, which launched in 2012, proved to be an instant success with major global enterprises.

The company, who have over 5,500 clients across the globe, expanded by opening an office in San Francisco which opened in 2012, they then opened an office in Germany in 2013 to establish a critical foothold in the largest European market replicating its already successful model in the UK and the US.

Comprising a total of 4,245 sq ft, this Grade II listed property provides residential accommodation on 1st and 2nd floors and a bar / restaurant on the ground and lower ground floors.

This follows on from our letting of the ground floor of this property to renowned Shoreditch operator Jaguar Shoes. Opening under the name ‘Hand of Glory’ earlier in 2014, this is their first venue outside of Shoreditch. Since they launched 12 years ago, Jaguar Shoes provide a variety of different platforms for creative talent from collaborative products and retail opportunities to exhibitions and events.

Their other units are ‘The Old Shoreditch Station’ which is a café bar and exhibition venue in a decommissioned train station and their flagship venue ‘Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes’ whose name comes from the 1980’s bag and shoe wholesalers that once occupied the adjoining units.

Jaguar Shoes have also just opened the UK’s first 3D printing café in the third room at the ‘Old Shoreditch Station’ which allows anyone to walk in and print off their creations.

We would like to wish Jaguar Shoes and Dawnelia Properties all the best for their new unit in Hackney.

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.

London is the perfect place for FCC’s Urban Innovation Centre, with the hope that economies will benefit at home and abroad.
