Here at First Street we are committed to creating an environment of the highest quality, adopting the smart design of buildings and places to provide inherent efficiency, flexibility and productivity. By providing a highly competitive offer for occupiers, and delivering low total occupational costs, we are creating a commercially sustainable destination throughout the First Street estate by fusing cultural, creative, business, retail and leisure uses.
This 170,000 sq ft Grade A BREEAM Excellent office accommodation over ground plus six floors, has unrivalled 26,000 sq ft, largely column free floorplates, offering flexible layouts and generously proportioned office space. The 5th floor and part of the 6th floor were pre-let to energy company, Gazprom prior to the start of construction.
Recently announced is that they will be joined by WSP which is moving its 850 strong staff to the 1st and 2nd floors, with ODEON taking the 3rd. The remaining 38,000 sq ft of office space is now available on the fourth and part 6th floors. Unique to the building is the creation of six striking, double height winter gardens offering up to 2,538 sq ft of private amenity space, and just one way of dressing this space can be viewed here.
The development is being delivered in a joint venture between PATRIZIA UK and GMPF with Ask Real Estate undertaking the Development Management role.

Designed by Fletcher Priest, the First Street office buildings will all provide a modern working environment, where amenity spaces are a key component in the overall design. Designed to exceed BCO 2014 BREEAM standard, and with the benefit of outline planning status, up to four further office buildings will be added to the estate over the coming few years.
With the capacity to deliver in excess of 750,000 sq ft of floorspace, the next phases of development are designed to function as independent buildings or grouped with bridge links connecting the office floor plates with amenities, meeting rooms and quiet spaces while ground floor street frontages provide opportunities for independent retail units.
Five new opportunities are available at the ground floor level of the office building with units ranging in size from 1,980 sq ft to 7,000 sq ft. All units will have the benefit of substantial outdoor seating terraces, and there is an option to create a mezzanine floor in Unit 2.
