back HELICAL AGREES THREE FURTHER LETTINGS AT BARTS SQUARE

Helical plc is pleased to announce that it has completed an additional three lettings at 90 Bartholomew Close, Barts Square, EC1, as a result of which the building is now fully let, providing further evidence of the appeal of Barts Square as a desirable office location:

• Law firm Constantine Cannon has agreed a five-year lease for the 4,733 sq ft 3rd floor
• The 6th floor of 2,399 sq ft will be occupied by executive search firm Eric Salmon & Partners on a 10-year lease.
• The 2nd floor of 4,675 sq ft, which is fully fitted, has been taken for expansion space by an existing tenant of Helical’s on a five-year lease.

The recently completed six-storey, 90 Bartholomew Close provides 24,013 sq ft of offices, and 6,414 sq ft of restaurant space, occupied by the award-winning LINO, all housed behind an attractive retained Victorian façade.

Delivering WiredScore Gold, bike storage and shower facilities, the property offers contemporary and stylish office space to businesses attracted to Barts Square’s contrasting attributes of a new urban village together with its excellent connectivity.

Oliver Rippier, Development Executive at Helical, commented:

“Adding the final three occupiers at 90 Bartholomew Close is a significant milestone for Helical, with the diversity of the building’s tenant mix demonstrating the appeal of our high quality space and the growing popularity of the area. Since the start of 2019 we have now let 164,247 sq ft of space at Barts Square, to ten different office occupiers, with only one floor, of 19,609 sq ft, remaining at One Bartholomew. January 2020 will see the launch of 55 Bartholomew Close which will be the final office building to complete at Barts Square. This totals 11,000 sq ft and is a sensitive refurbishment of a Victorian warehouse building which will provide a home for smaller occupiers and further enhance the offer of the estate.”

Barts Square is a three-acre, mixed use development located between St Paul’s and Smithfield. Comprising 236 high quality apartments, circa 250,000 sq ft of contemporary office space over three buildings and 10 retail and restaurant units, Barts Square is the creation of a genuine new urban quarter in this charming location. It is also a short walk from the new Farringdon East Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) station, due to open in 2021. Beautiful landscaping is complemented by a line-up of independent food and beverage operators, set to be further enhanced with the completion of the final phase of the scheme early next year.

Helical was advised by Ingleby Trice and Gryphon Property Partners. Farebrother acted for the 2nd floor tenant and Constantine Cannon. Simmons & Co acted for Eric Salmon & Partners.
