Property Week has an interesting article on developer Resolution’s proposals to reinvigorate the substantial office building on the north side of Finsbury Square known as Triton Court. The building was developed by Royal London Insurance in the early 1900s and has been the home to many city tenants.
Original ideas to convert the Portland stone facaded building to a hotel receded and Resolution now plans to create a business hub and meeting place for both local start ups and also blue chip occupiers from the Technology, Media and Telecoms sector. The belief that prospective tenants will be from the TMT sectors has resulted in the developer “turning round” the main entrance from Finsbury Square and onto Worship Street, facing up into Shoreditch.
Recently Mellersh & Harding acted for McKay Securities PLC on the purchase of 66 Wilson Street, a stone’s throw from Triton Court. The building in time will provide offices to let for either the TMT sector or the traditional financial services tenants. Both will benefit from the location’s excellent communications and competitive rental levels.
Mellersh & Harding have recently acted for other tenants acquiring city offices and would be delighted to advise further on any requirements for offices to let in the West End, Mid Town or the City.
