Ever felt like you don’t know where to start when looking for office space in London? Finding the perfect fit for your business can take time and can often impact a company culture, motivation and productivity.
Choosing London as your base can often be a proud decision, whether choosing North, South, East, West or Central London you want to choose a location that matches your company values, ethos and goals. How you are perceived as a business is often dictated by where your office is. Tom Gaydon, Director at Flexible Office Space comments “After an unexpectedly slow start to the year in early January activity levels since then have dramatically increased with many businesses seeking to relocate into properties that are more space efficient and offer their staff a better experience. With flexible working now being widely embraced we’re also seeing an increase in larger companies wishing to explore moving away from their long-term lease commitments into smaller managed or serviced spaces – but while still retaining their own identity. This has been further supplemented by corporate businesses who, most of which, are now seeking to have a proportion of flex space as part of their overall property strategy. This is directly affecting the availability of sub 10k conventional leased spaces that are available in central London, the level of which is currently at a ten-year high figure of 10.3%, up 1.6% in the last year alone.”
London is a truly global city. As the engine of Europe’s second largest economy (The UK is also the 5th largest globally), it is a land of opportunity, and home to some of the world’s biggest and most dynamic companies.
The old working-class neighbourhoods of the East End, grey and marginal, have transformed their image, becoming an alternative point for multiple trends, thanks to the hosting of young designers and artists who couldn’t afford the extremely expensive rentals of the city centre.
The city has one of the highest growth markets of flexible office space in the world. On average, a new co-working space opens in London every 5 days. In the same year, it was reported that throughout the capital, over 1,300 new flexible office locations were available, showing a 9 percent increase year-on-year. This increase was also reflected in a rise in the number of hybrid work centres that combine co-working and serviced office space in London.
For people who are just getting their business off the ground, hiring a permanent office doesn’t always make sense – which is why more and more start-ups are opting to work in shared spaces.
