London Executive Offices (LEO) is relaunching as The Argyll Club and unveiling a suite of new business memberships, which will provide busy professionals exclusive access to a host of its business clubs across London.
A well-respected player in the London office market for over 20 years, The Argyll Club is embarking upon the next stage of its evolution and plans to double its size in just five years. The ambitious growth plan will be achieved by extending its range of services, expanding both its owned and leased real estate, and partnering with some of London’s most prestigious landlords.
As part of the initiative, the business is investing an eight-figure sum to upgrade its existing portfolio, including restoration work on one of Mayfair’s very few Grade 1 listed office buildings. With addresses such as 1 Cornhill, 33 St James’s Square and 78-79 Pall Mall, The Argyll Club boasts a 38-strong portfolio of some of the most interesting and impressive buildings in London.
Beth Hampson, Commercial Director comments: “As a business we have evolved and we now offer everything from premium offices to elegant lounges and delightful meeting spaces, all delivered with concierge service. The quality of both the environment and service we provide is much more akin to a members’ club and we wanted our name to reflect that.”
The new Portfolio Membership provides access to seven of London’s finest locations, from Mayfair to the City, with discreet lounges, hot-desking facilities and business concierge services. They are designed for both existing members who want additional flexible space to complement their existing office network, and new members who want access to premium working environments and business support services but don’t necessarily need permanent office space.
From today, Members can also access an array of updated digital services, including a new website, app, online booking system and customer portal. These will streamline the member experience, making it easier to book meeting rooms across London. Functionality will increase as a host of new features come online over the next 12 months.
Conal O’Hara, Chief Operating Officer concludes: “The way we all work is changing and the office environments we use need to reflect that. Our new memberships provide a fresh way for individuals to access the calm, professional, grown-up business spaces we’ve become known for. Flexible workspace currently accounts for around 6.3% of office space in London. We expect that figure to grow significantly. Our marriage of prime locations and concierge service is unlike anything else in the market and we’re well placed to meet the ever-increasing demand for sophisticated working environments.”
