See-through qualities: glass-fronted revamped
office floors on Old Street
You may well have noticed 140 Old Street on your way around
the City Fringe: an entirely glass façade between the brick and stone
elevations of the adjoining Victorian buildings creating a brazenly modern
intervention in a typical, traditional streetscape.
What is not so apparent from the front is how the office
spaces within from the first floor up have large banks of glass along their entire
left and right flanks as well as further windows at the rear, providing an all
encompassing sense of natural light on every side.
A development by DTZ Investors, the newly revamped floors
have been finished to a Cat A standard by Peldon Rose. We currently have the second floor unit available, measuring 2568ft2.
Inside, the open plan layouts display a modern industrial

Amenities within the building include a passenger lift,
security entryphone system, 24-hour access and sleek WC and shower

The location is not only supremely
accessible, but also absolutely perfect for attracting and retaining the best
talent for your business. Old Street station (Northern Line and National Rail)
is but a few minutes’ walk and is scheduled for substantial redevelopment later
this year to include a transformed ticket hall and the remodelling of the iconic
roundabout into a large public piazza.
Just 1 minute’s walk brings you to the
fantastic daily street food market of Whitecross Street – one of the most
popular places to eat, meet and socialise with both local workers and residents
– while the recently opened culinary boulevard at The Bower is but a few
hundred yards. Effectively at the meeting point of Shoreditch and Clerkenwell,
140 Old Street is surrounded by an incredible array of cafes, bars restaurant
and shops that combine to create a unique and vibrant buzz that makes it a great
place to come to work.
