Real estate investment and development business Trilogy Real Estate and LaSalle Investment Management, a leading real estate investment manager, have announced three new lettings at Republic, a 600,000 sq ft next-gen office campus in east London.
F45, the globally-recognised fitness studio born in Australia, will be launching a new 2,130 sq ft site in the Export Building at Republic. F45 Training is an international fitness community specialising in innovation and high-intensity group workouts that are engaging, and results driven.
Global Banking School, an institution recognised internationally for its applied education in Finance, Business, Healthcare, Banking and Hospitality management, has signed for a 6,015 sq ft space at Republic, adding to its portfolio of campuses in key UK cities. The deal represents Global Banking School’s second London location.
YourParkingSpace, the UK’s leading online parking platform, has announced it will be moving its operations to a 2,766 sq ft unit at Republic, from their original site at Level 39 in Canary Wharf. The business is set to take space in the all-inclusive Studios at Republic – a concept which offers occupiers a simple, flexible solution to securing their own dedicated space. YourParkingSpace connects motorists with both privately owned and commercially operated parking spaces in the UK, with a range of time slots bookable on-demand.
Laurence Jones, Head of Asset Management at Trilogy Real Estate, said:
“Our objective with Republic was to create an incredible environment, and affordable workspace, for the talent of the future. These new signings further bolster Republic’s reputation as a key location for education, tech, and wellness brands. F45 aligns with our focus on community and wellness objectives, enhancing our retail and leisure offer. Global Banking School and YourParkingSpace are welcome additions to the existing education faculties and pioneering businesses already on site.”
George Crook, Owner, F45 Blackwall, said:
“We fell in love with Republic the second we stepped off the platform at East India DLR. The incredible architecture, the tenants they are attracting and buzz about the area was everything we had been looking for. In our first meeting with Trilogy it was clear we both spoke the same language around the benefits of building a community and supporting exciting up and coming new businesses. To say we are excited to bring F45 Blackwall to Republic is an understatement.”
The lettings see the newly launched ‘Studios at Republic’ already at 50% occupancy. Set on the fifth floor of the Import Building, the Studios provide fully fitted, newly refurbished, all-inclusive, flexible workspaces for businesses of 22-76 employees looking for immediate occupancy. The Studios offer an exclusive opportunity for companies to join Republic’s creative community and gain access to the campus’ curated amenities, events and wellbeing offerings.
Republic is already home to a raft of creative and innovative companies, including The Trampery co-working space; award-winning digital agency Threepipe; one of Europe’s fastest growing telecommunications companies Lebara Mobile; Deliveroo’s East London recruitment hub; The Gentlemen Baristas coffee shop; and the UK’s largest gym operator PureGym. Global Banking School will join fellow institute ARU London, which announced its signing at Republic in July, set to provide facilities for 500 students.
Republic has set a new standard for next-generation workspace in East London, providing a well-connected, affordable campus that meets contemporary professional and personal needs, with a focus on creativity, connectivity, affordability and wellbeing. The campus offers an ongoing series of curated social and cultural events, wellness facilities and initiatives, alongside a recently redeveloped public realm, which boasts a comprehensive ecology strategy. The Export Building, the second phase of the campus’ redevelopment, providing another 120,000 sq ft of workspace, is nearing completion with a formal launch anticipated in Q1 2020.
