  2. “I grow old…I grow old…I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled,” T.S. Elliot

    13 March 2020
    “I grow old…I grow old…I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled,” T.S. Elliot writes in his masterful poem, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.

    You might be asking why on earth we’re quoting poetry about hipster fashion habits and we’ll tell you why.
    We’re shamelessly (mis-)using it by means of introduction to the Verse Building (poetry? Verse? Get it?!), which is located in London’s spiritual home of the trouser-rolling hipster, Old Street. 

    What do you think of the segue now? Clunky? Yeah, maybe a bit.

    But there’s absolutely nothing clunky about Verse Building, or its sister development next door, the now-fully let, Chapter House. 

    The scheme, designed by world renown architects BucklyGrayYeoman, combines state of the art design, connectivity and sustainability to bring just over 17,000 Ft2 of office space across 8 fabulous floors to the market. 

    And perhaps the least clunky, most funky, sickest, slickest (how’s that for verse) part of renting here is the bespoke fit-out service on offer. 

    You can work with a design consultant to get your branding in place and to configure the space to make your business model flow.

    Then dive deeper into detail and choose from a curated range of high-spec finishes: from flooring to feature-walls to kitchen cupboard finishes and everything in between. 

    We’ve also created a streamlined paperwork process, meaning the time from initial viewing to moving into your fully fitted office is 8 weeks. 

    And if you’d rather take the space open plan (CAT A), then that option is, of course, always on offer too. A range of rents reflecting letting, design and fit-out preferences is available. 

    Whichever way you go, your offices will be part of a thriving environment in a building which has a commissionaire, air-conditioning, openable windows, almost 3m ceilings, cycle spaces, lockers and showers for everything your team needs.  

    Verse Building is moments from the Northern Line at Old Street and no more than a 10-minute walk from the soon-to-arrive Elizabeth Line at Moorgate. Shoreditch High Street Overground is also 10 minutes by foot, and a whole host of buses connect every which way. 

    Bars, restaurants, markets, music venues, shopping, art and fashion fill the area with colour, scent and sound. Some local favourites are Nightjar, Shoreditch Grind, and Lyle’s, but that’s really just scratching the surface. Speaking of which, the surface area of Old Street roundabout is undergoing one big transformational scratch and will soon be an open, public space designed for pedestrians and cyclists making the neighbourhood an even greener place to work.

    So roll up those trousers, before you get old, and come take a look. Call us on 020 7101 2020 to arrange a viewing.
