British Land has leased over 30,000 sq ft of workspace at its London campuses to tech businesses Vorboss and Anaplan.

Leading fibre provider Vorboss has chosen Broadwalk House, Broadgate for its new headquarters and will take 17,000 sq ft of plug-and-play space until 2025. They will join digital challenger bank, Monzo, who relocated its headquarters to the building in 2019. Anaplan, the global cloud-based planning software company, is taking 13,000 sq ft at 338 Euston Road, Regent’s Place for its new London office. The building is also home to Storey, British Land’s flexible workspace brand.

 

"Innovative businesses like Vorboss and Anaplan recognise that well located, high quality workspace which encourages collaboration, supports learning and fosters culture will be fundamental to their success."

Timothy Creswick, CEO of Vorboss, said: “This is a huge milestone for Vorboss. We are excited to see our business grow, and it is essential that we create an environment that continues to encourage cross-team communication and provides the best working experience to all our employees. Broadwalk House does just this and has enabled us to move quickly to support our expansion plans.”

Melinda Wetzel, Head of Real Estate and Workplace at Anaplan, said: "Our move to Regent's Place will allow Anaplan to not only continue to grow our team in London, but to reimagine the way we work together and create a workspace which is flexible and fosters our company’s culture. The Euston road location will also be home to our new EMEA Customer Experience Centre."

 

British Land's Broadgate Liberation

 

Mike Wiseman, Head of Leasing at British Land, said: “Whilst Covid-19 has shown that people can work more flexibly, innovative businesses like Vorboss and Anaplan recognise that well located, high quality workspace which encourages collaboration, supports learning and fosters culture will be fundamental to their success as they start to look beyond the pandemic. British Land is well placed to meet these evolving needs – our diverse workspace offering provides flexibility to our customers in the broadest sense, from size, design, configuration, service and lease length.”

British Land is investing £1.5 billion over 10 years to transform Broadgate into a world-class, mixed-use destination for London. The campus hosts many of the world's leading financial, legal, technology and media companies, alongside some of London’s best shops, restaurants and bars, including 90,000 sq ft of premium brands at 100 Liverpool Street and the UK’s first Eataly. It is also home to four public squares, including Exchange Park, a 1.5-acre park, which is currently under construction and will quadruple the amount of green space at Broadgate.

Regent’s Place is a 13-acre, fully managed campus, with over 20,000 workers and residents. Benefitting from the latest in sustainable design, it is a lively mix of offices, leisure and public spaces that is located between one of London’s most beautiful parks, the heart of the West End and the Knowledge Quarter, home to eight universities, 22 museums and galleries, 580 research centres and more than 3,000 scientists.
