Cain International, the privately held real estate investment firm operating in Europe and the United States, is moving its UK headquarters to Islington Square, its contemporary mixed-use scheme, after 4 years in Mayfair.
Cain International will occupy five floors at Islington Square, spanning over 9,700 sq ft, allowing Cain’s 50-strong workforce to use the office while following social distancing guidelines and providing more space for collaboration and creativity. The office space has been designed by Modus Workspace to ensure a contemporary finish and covid-19 customised space.
Developed on the site of North London’s former postal sorting office, employees will be situated in a London heritage building while working next to some of the UK’s top creatives, such as Fulwell 73, James Corden’s production company that occupies 25,000 sq ft in the development. Staff will be able to enjoy Islington Square’s many facilities, with shops such as A.P.C., Arlo & Jacob and House of Harth, restaurants including Megan’s, Omnom and Borough Kitchen, a Third Space health club and an ODEON Luxe & Dine cinema.
Jonathan Goldstein, Chief Executive Officer at Cain International, commented: “One of the biggest takeaways from the last few months has been that, while we might be able to work from anywhere, where we work is still incredibly important to us. Locations such as Islington will be increasingly attractive to occupiers moving forwards through the ability to offer more than just a place of work, but a local ecosystem of cafés, restaurants and leisure facilities. We believe teamwork is vital for innovation so being able to configure our new space so that we can all work under one roof in a more collaborative, flexible and dynamic way is incredibly important. I am proud of the fantastic and international team we have created and am excited about the next stage of our growth as one of our very first developments becomes a fitting new home.”
Ali Mackechnie Designer at Modus Workspace, added: “It has been an absolute pleasure collaborating with the Cain International team to create a new and welcoming work environment in the beautiful Islington Square development. Our brief entailed bringing the empty shell-and-core building to life whilst maintaining and enhancing the building’s existing historical features. Moreover, as the space is in such a vibrant part of London, it was essential that this was reflected in the design. The result is a contemporary, character-filled space reflective of London’s ever-changing personality.”
