back AshbyCapital and Helical secure major pre-let as The Trade Desk takes 55,000 sq ft at One Bartholomew, Farringdon

AshbyCapital, the property investment advisory company, and its development partner Helical, have completed their first pre-let at One Bartholomew, the 12-storey, 215,000 sq ft office building within the Barts Square development in London’s Farringdon.

The 55,000 sq ft letting sees digital advertising company The Trade Desk take the building’s top three floors, including the tenth-floor terrace. The company is moving from its current base on Farringdon Road.

The deal comes ahead of the building’s completion later this year. One Bartholomew will offer efficient and flexible floorplates, typically of 19,000 sq ft, within a Grade A office building designed by award-winning architect Sheppard Robson.

Peter Ferrari, Chief Executive at AshbyCapital, said:
“This significant pre-letting to a global media tech company several months before completion is testament to the wide ranging demand for high-quality office space close to the new Elizabeth Line station at Farringdon. With a wide and growing range of amenities excellent transport links – and a creative vibe, this is London’s new neighbourhood in which we are creating a first-rate new office building.”

Gerald Kaye, Chief Executive of Helical, said:
“It is exciting to welcome the first office occupier to our Barts Square development as this new mixed-use destination takes shape. Combining homes, retail and office space with landscaped public areas, this is set to be a fantastic new place to live, work and spend time at the heart of one of London’s most vibrant locations.”

Agents for One Bartholomew are CBRE, Savills and Ingleby Trice. DeVono Cresa represented The Trade Desk.
