Just launched!

Tailored Living Solutions has just launched the first building at one of London's greenest commercial developments.

Designed by TDO Architecture, The Sea Building is an 8,609 sq ft six-storey creative office space, which can be leased in CAT A condition or fully fitted through the appointed agents Union Street Partners and Knight Frank.

The Sea Building forms a part of the wider 66,936 sq ft Great Suffolk Yard development with BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and WELL ‘Gold’ certifications, making it one of London’s most sustainable modern commercial buildings.

The scheme has also received a WiredScore Platinum rating, which is the highest available from the global digital connectivity certification body.

The floorplates provide a feeling of openness and space, each designed with a unique character that will accommodate different groups, activities and modes of working. Fresh-air ventilation systems and factory-style openable windows throughout combine to deliver natural ventilation and light to each floor of The Sea Building, which has been considered to help promote wellbeing and productivity.

Secure cycle parking for 100 bicycles, private showers and locker facilities are available across Great Suffolk Yard.

Josh Chadd, Founder & Managing Director at Tailored Living Solutions, commented: “We’re excited to be able to launch The Sea Building, which is the first piece of this incredible development. The building has been thoughtfully designed for today’s discerning workforce, combining the very best of modern design and sustainable features with the industrial charm, character and personality of Southwark that Great Suffolk Yard represents.”

Rob Macnab, Partner at Knight Frank, added: “Great Suffolk Yard is part of a new wave of office buildings with sustainability, wellness and design at their heart. The first phase of the development is now complete with The Sea Building reaching practical completion this autumn and already attracting considerable interest with one floor under offer and detailed negotiations on another.

“We have seen dramatic changes in the fundamental demand for real estate over the last 18 months. Demand for quality office space, which encourages people back into the workplace and promotes collaboration and team culture, is apparent. Last year, 90% of all 30,000 sq ft plus transactions in the City submarket, incorporating Southwark, were for new Grade A spaces, with this accounting for 77% so far this year.”

Doug Hodgson, the co-founder at TDO Architecture, said: “We wanted to create a space that parallels the past creators, makers and innovators with the ones of today and tomorrow, whom we envisage enjoying the improved workspaces that we are delivering. We anticipate that Great Suffolk Yard will have great appeal as a space in which to congregate with colleagues, and share knowledge and collaborate, either as a permanent workspace or a compliment to working from home.”

Office space at The Sea Building is available to rent. For more information contact Union Street Partners or Knight Frank.
