Helical has completed another letting at 55 Bartholomew Close, EC1, to Clevertouch, a global leader in providing multi-award winning audio visual solutions. Clevertouch has agreed a five year lease at a headline rent of £75 psf for the entire 2,564 sq ft ground floor. Clevertouch will join hedge fund ShadowFall who leased the fifth floor at the newly refurbished office building earlier this year. 7,372 sq ft remains available to let in floorplates of 789 to 1,748 sq ft.
Originally three Victorian townhouses, 55 Bartholomew Close has been comprehensively refurbished by Helical to provide 10,976 sq ft of high quality, distinctive office space over six floors. It is the third and final office building to be completed at Barts Square, a three-acre, mixed use development located between St Paul’s and Smithfield. Comprising 236 high quality apartments, circa 250,000 sq ft of modern office space over three buildings and 10 retail and restaurant units, Barts Square is the creation of a genuine new urban quarter in central London.
Francesca Palmano, Property Executive at Helical, commented: “We are pleased to welcome Clevertouch to 55 Bartholomew Close. This letting demonstrates the enduring appeal of high quality office space in the capital. Helical has a strong track record of creating design-led office environments that meet the evolving needs of today’s businesses and enable our occupiers to work alongside other exciting and dynamic companies.”
Clevertouch CEO, Mark Starkey, added: “We have been looking for the ideal premises to support our growing operations in Europe and 55 Bartholomew Close, with its characterful space, excellent transport links and appealing public realm was the obvious choice to showcase our multi-award winning Enterprise technology solutions, support the new norm for working and customer experience.”
Helical was advised by Ingleby Trice and Gryphon Property Partners. Clevertouch was represented by The Workplace Company.
