New hub aims to provide London office space for a wide range of charities
The charity solicitors firm Bates Wells Braithwaite (BWB) has announced that it will open a new hub that offers charities the opportunity to rent space in BWB’s central London offices.
Situated in the heart of the City of London, the new hub will occupy 4,000 square foot on the first floor of BWB’s Queen Street Place office, and will offer charities the opportunity to rent open-plan office desk space on either a long or short-term license basis.
To deliver this project, BWB has partnered with the established registered charity and social enterprise CAN Mezzanine. CAN will promote the launch of the hub and undertake the day to day management and renting of the space.
Charities renting space in the hub, which will open in Spring 2018, will enjoy a collaborative environment with superb facilities, high-speed broadband/Wi-Fi, conference rooms and a spectacular roof terrace!
Marking this announcement, Martin Bunch, Managing Partner, Bates Wells Braithwaite said:
“We’ve considered for some time how we could bring this project to life and, with the hub now almost a reality, it certainly feels that a long-term ambition is now being achieved.
“At a time when organisations of all kinds often struggle to find suitable office space in London, we feel that this project provides a positive example of what, in practical terms, can be done to support charities.
“We look forward to both opening the hub next year and to welcoming those who are keen to use the available space.”
Gary Phillips, Director, Sales & Marketing, at CAN Mezzanine said:
“CAN is delighted to be working in partnership with BWB on this exciting initiative of creating a unique hub right in the heart of the city.
“CAN has seen a demand for charities to find space where they can work collaboratively with each other and be able to obtain business support from their peers.
“The Charity Hub is ideal for all those charities that need to be located in central London and who could benefit from having a leading law firm literally on their doorstep. We envisage strong demand for a space with such an enviable location and facilities.”
