Announcing Huckletree Liverpool St - our sixth London hub and our eight in total - bringing ambitious scaleups and global innovation teams together in the world’s financial capital.
Today we announce the opening of our sixth London hub in Liverpool St in a deal signed with British Land, one of the largest property development and investment companies in the UK. Opening in autumn 2023, Huckletree Liverpool Street is set to become the destination for teams seeking primely positioned, innovative and sustainable workspace in a thriving central location. Located at 199 Bishopsgate, the hub will span four floors and will offer highly sought-after amenities including a plant-powered coffee shop, a dedicated wellness space and an entire hospitality floor, with meeting rooms, event spaces and a members’ bar. This is a pivotal moment for our business as we continue to expand our footprint across the UK and Ireland, with an intention to grow to 225,000 sqft by the end of this year.
The financial capital of the world
The Huckletree leadership team spend countless hours carefully selecting the location of our workspaces. Liverpool St and the surrounding area is widely regarded as the financial capital of the world. It is home to over 500 banks, financial firms, and insurance institutions, among them top-tier names such as Ernst and Young, Lloyds, BT, Aviva, and the prestigious London Stock Exchange. In recent years, this vibrant district has also become home to incredible fintech startups and scaleups keen to disrupt the world of finance, making it more accessible, streamlined and efficient. With the current £1.5 billion redevelopment of Liverpool St, the area is destined for further growth and transformation, making it an attractive destination for ambitious companies keen to be located in the central business district.
Workspace for how we live today
As our portfolio of hubs continues to grow and evolve, we continue to bring a fresh and bold approach to workspace experience, helping people feel happy to come to work everyday. The design aesthetic at Liverpool St is standout and playful. Like all of our hubs, it is designed to inspire creativity, productivity, emotional well-being and happiness. Our use of colour creates moods and emotional reactions, which support healthier and more productive teams.
The space, alongside our membership options, is also designed for evolved styles of working. Our range of private studios and customisable enterprise suites are perfect for companies looking for flexibility alongside a space to call their own. Ergonomic, comfortable workstations and soundproof booths for confidential calls and focus work feature alongside communal work zones and breakout space. Our state of the art range of meeting rooms and event space is equipped with seamless technology systems for hybrid work gatherings and distributed teams. Our club membership is a great option for those who do not need a private office, and wish to work from a collaborative community with access to the great amenities. Our café will allow teams to meet in more casual surroundings, and bring guests into the space. The wellness area will offer our members the chance to pause and take a break from their busy work day, and our engaging programming schedule will bring people together on a regular basis through roundtables, workshops and social gatherings.
Conscious of our impact
As Huckletree grows our footprint, being environmentally conscious increasingly plays a significant role in every decision we make as a business, and we actively choose to bring our new hubs including Liverpool St to life in the most sustainable ways we can. We look closely at a building’s sustainability certification, and are proud to share that 199 Bishopsgate is rated BREEAM excellent. We work closely with architects and contractors for our fit-out projects who have a demonstrable track record of commitment to sustainability, and were proud to partner with award winning, B Corp accredited design company Modus for our interior renovations. We are working towards a SKA Silver accreditation for the fit-out of our Liverpool Street hub.
In good company
Our mission since day 1 has always been to create the most exciting innovation ecosystem throughout the UK & Ireland. The members who work from our hubs work alongside the most exciting community of disruptive companies, entrepreneurs and global teams who are leading the way in our industries. As we prepare to open the doors of Huckletree Liverpool Street in a couple of months, we are excited to welcome a new curated group of innovation businesses into our ecosystem.
With a prime location, sustainable design, and highly sought-after amenities, Huckletree Liverpool Street is destined to become the top choice for ambitious businesses seeking a central, collaborative, and dynamic workspace in London. Get in touch today to book an exploratory call with our team, or spread the word if there’s someone in your network looking for a new workspace. We’d love to hear from you.
