YoooServ has taken 16,795 sq ft at Regal London’s 173,000 sq ft best-in-class sustainable office development in Watford
Tuesday, 21 November, London – Regal London has signed an agreement with premium flexible offices provider YoooServ at The Clarendon Works, the best-in-class sustainable workplace under development in Watford set to open in Q3 2024.
YoooServ will take 16,975 sq ft on the ground and first floors for 15 years, providing fully customisable flexible workspace, with private offices, tech-led meeting rooms, curated breakout spaces and videocall booths – in addition to in-house catering and event space. YoooServ will also manage the 13,767sq ft of amenity space and services throughout the building.
Paul Eden, co-founder of Regal London, said: “We have approached The Clarendon Works, our first standalone office development, with the exact same approach as we take on our residential developments: excellence in design, a focus on wellbeing of those living (and working) here, and a drive to create not just homes but a community. YoooServ shares those values and will ensure that The Clarendon Works offers a workplace experience unlike anywhere else nearby – and, indeed, often one better than the offices in Euston and King’s Cross, just a 15-minute journey away. With completion less than a year away, space in the building is in demand and we’re looking forward to welcoming teams to a bustling workspace.”
On the ground floor BLA BLA, which is the sister brand of YoooServ, will operate a café – with a delicious informal food and drink offer- open to all. With Bomboni, another sister company, on the 11th floor bar and roof top terrace, providing an extensive, high-quality food and beverage offering.
Benjamin Willmore, chief executive officer of YoooServ, commented: “Watford is in the middle of a £1.5billion glow-up which is spearheaded by the local council, complementing what Regal London is doing – creating a premium mixed-use scheme of homes and office space. The Clarendon Works will offer an exceptional experience to businesses of all shapes and sizes, including those currently based in Watford, those across the north-west M25 corridor, and businesses attracted by its train links of 15-minutes into London Euston. Our values and energy chime as we set a new bar for the demands of the office, amenity and wellbeing-led spaces.”
YoooServ was set up to meet the demand of premium tier of serviced offices in the regions. It currently operates three sites, two in Weybridge and one in Reading with three others in the pipeline; with state-of-the-art gyms, cafes and collaborative workspaces are used by 77 companies.
The Clarendon Works will provide 173,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over 11 floors for businesses of all dimensions – from start-ups to established brands – at a compelling price point and just 15 minutes by train from London Euston. Floorplates on offer range from c. 2,450 sq ft to c. 15,300 sq ft.
Designed by architect Fraser Brown MacKenna to high levels of sustainability and is targeting BREEAM Excellent and EPC A sustainability ratings.
