Planning Usage: B1 Business / Office
The property is situated at the north end of Wharf Road that is just off City Road and is well located in between Old Street Roundabout (Silicon Roundabout these days) and Islington's Upper Street, both offering a large selection of cool bars, cafe's and retailers.
The Estate itself comprises of four main blocks with a central communal courtyard at its heart. Formerly a Victorian Printing Factory, the building retains many of its original external features such as the cobbled stone floor, factory style windows and many original cranes attached to the outside of the building.
This estate is uniquely located overlooking the Wenlock Basin which leads into the Regents Canal. This is an amenity enjoyed by all tenants who use the water's edge during lunch time as a communal place to meet, eat and relax.
Creating a truly inspiring workplace designed to influence interaction between tenants is at the forefront of the Landlords agenda. Our client is currently working closely with architects, branding agencies and contractors to produce a new & improved brand identity for the building which will come into effect later this year. Part of these plans will include the construction of a Coffee & Sandwich Bar within the estate as well as outdoor seating to be situated overlooking the Wenlock Basin.
Internally, the office units have been fully refurbished with the buildings original use in mind offering new wood flooring, exposed structural steel & concrete beams and exposed London-stock brickwork in some of the office units.
The offices contain male & female WCs and capped services allowing tenants easy access to plumbing when installing kitchen facilities
The estate also includes secure bike storage, an on site commissionaire and loading access.
We feel this development could suit occupiers in the creative industry seeking an inspiring place to work in a thriving location.
