Around 50,000 sq ft of London offices
has been taken up by Amazon subsidiary Pushbutton.
The company, which is currently based at 200 Aldersgate and 1 Benjamin Street, has decided upon a base at the Glasshouse Yard scheme in Clerkenwell, CoStar News reported.
Threadneedle Asset Management purchased 26-28 Glasshouse Yard on behalf of its Zurich Fund in 2006 for approximately £30 million. The building consists of seven storeys of London offices
and totals 47,582 sq ft.
Collins Construction was responsible for converting the former telephone exchange into contemporary offices. Cladding systems were replaced with structural glazing and new lighting was installed to keep to the Glasshouse theme.
According to CoStar News, Pushbutton - which was purchased in July last year by Amazon - will pay approximately £30 per sq ft.
The organisation builds and designs user interfaces that enable people to watch media content across a variety of platforms and devices.
Pushbutton's new London offices
mean it remains within the EC1 postcode where its other two bases are.
