Five commercial units for sale or to let

Aitch Group has launched its new canal-side, warehouse-style, commercial spaces at Empress Works.

Five units range from 686 sq ft to 1,722 sq ft in size and are ideal for creative businesses such as Food & Beverage operators, marketing agencies, retailers or leisure brands. The premises are available for sale or to let.

The commercial units form a warehouse-style complex that captures the spirit of the area’s industrial and ‘maker’ past while providing cutting-edge, flexible facilities that will perfectly suit the future of the post-pandemic working world.

Designed to reflect the architectural vernacular of the area’s heritage factories and warehouses, the building has tall Crittal-style windows, with each unit flooded with light, due to generous proportions, floor-to-ceiling windows and soaring ceiling heights. Each has the potential to be fully fitted on a bespoke specification to suit different purposes, including retail, leisure and fitness, offices or food.

This flexibility underlines Aitch Group’s inherent understanding of the office and commercial real estate market of today, helping businesses change and adapt at pace.

The units are separated by modern-day facilities such as a communal gym, bike storage, welcoming and relaxed lobby spaces. The sociable layout has been deliberately designed to encourage co-workers, visitors and locals to interact, ensuring a natural vibrancy in and around Empress Works, a vital component of the creation of place.

Piers Cook, Assistant Head of Asset & Property Management at Aitch Group commented: “Aitch Group believe that following the coronavirus pandemic, cleverly conceived boutique workplace schemes like Empress Works will be highly sought after. Empress Works sits on a crossroads of culture in East London, located at the north-eastern tip of Bethnal Green on the doorstep of Hackney. The units are ideal for either creative businesses or a corporate reconsidering the need for vast headquarters. Empress Works offers both office space for a company needing that essential London base or individual studios for techies, creatives and makers.”

Empress Works is part of the renaissance of Bethnal Green with entrepreneurs and creatives remaking the area. Local legends include master ‘Mac-smith’ Paul Marc Davis, whose thriving Apple repair shop is based on Hackney Road. A sculptor too, he has a traditional shop frontage for his hi-tech service. Another neighbour is bed and mattress maker Julian Litvinoff, while interior designer Lucy Currel of Studio Ivo ­(born and bred in Bethnal Green) is showcasing her homeware pieces in the show apartment above Empress Works.

Employees at Empress Works will get to enjoy the Bethnal Green and London Fields scene. Broadway Market has been trading fresh produce for centuries but closed after the Second World War. It reopened after a 25-year long battle by campaigners and is now one of the busiest foodie hubs in the capital. As well as Saturday street stalls there is the fishmonger Fin & Flounder, the café Climpson & Sons and the popular restaurant L’eau a la Bouche. Hill & Szrok is a butcher by day and a hip eatery by night.

For the physical and emotional wellbeing of workers at Empress Works, it is a short stroll to vast green spaces such as Victoria Park, Haggerston Park and London Fields. The complex itself overlooks the calming blue space of Regent’s Canal, overhung by trees. Conveniently situated to get across London quickly, Cambridge Heath overground station is only a four-minute walk away and on the service to Liverpool Street and the City.

The commercial units at Empress Works are available for sale with a guide of OIEO £600 per sqft or to let with a guide of OIEO £35 per sqft.
