CBRE Acquires Flagship at Merchant Square, Paddington, for HP Total Care Centre.
Hewlett Packard will debut its HP Total Care Centre in the UK after acquiring its flagship UK store as part of an international expansion drive.
CBRE has acquired the 4,349 square foot store on behalf of Hewlett Packard at Merchant Square, the new office, retail and residential development around Paddington Basin. The store, which is part of European Land’s development, has been taken on a 10-year lease.
Paddington Basin has a daily footfall of 30,000 people. Marks and Spencer’s headquarters, and Orange are both located in the area.
HP’s Total Care Centres offer a fully integrated experience for customers who are seeking support, training or looking to get their PC serviced. Hewlett Packard first launched the concept in Istanbul in 2011 and is currently planning a global roll out to key cities around the world.
Paul Hunter, Vice President Printing and Personal Systems, HP UK&I, commented:
“We are excited to launch our Total Care Centre in the UK following considerable success with the concept in Middle East. By offering on-site training courses, advice and support we hope that this further improves our after-sales support and provides a more personal service to our valued customers. We are continuing to work with CBRE, utilising their expertise to continue our effort in expanding our industry-leading service support.”
Ramy Riad, Retail - South, CBRE, commented:
“HP’s Total Care Centre is an innovative concept that has proven successful in Asia Pacific and I am confident will do the same here. Merchant Square was an ideal location due to its transport links which not only make it accessible to people across London but also further afield. Fronting the canal it provides a relaxed environment for after sales support and customer training to take place. CBRE will continue to work with HP advising on strategy for future global expansion.”
Richard Banks, CEO of European Land, said:
“We are delighted to welcome such a highly reputable company as HP to Merchant Square. HP is the latest in a run of high profile brands to recognise both the quality of the Merchant Square development and the benefits of this unique waterfront location just moments from exceptional transport links.”

Shared ownership less than a mile from Marble Arch.
Grand Union Apartments at Merchant Square, Paddington Basin offer a rare opportunity to buy a share of new apartment in what is arguably one of London's highest profile areas of regeneration.
Contained within Waterline House, at the north eastern edge of Merchant Square, Grand Union Apartments comprise a collection of 16 one bedroom apartments located next to the Grand Union Canal and less than five minutes walk from Paddington station.
Every apartment boasts a smart, contemporary style specification. Each also benefits from views on to Merchant Square and the Grand Union Canal.
Grand Union Apartments are being made available on a part-buy, part rent basis - also known as shared ownership and New Build Homebuy. This means that you buy a share in your home and pay a subsidised rent on the share that you don't own.
The benefit to you is that you need a much smaller deposit because you only need to finance a share of the property through a mortgage. Added to this, your combined monthly mortgage repayment and rent is usually considerably less than renting a similar property privately.
Shares at Grand Union Apartments start from 25% and you can buy up to 75% initially, depending on what you can afford. As your circumstances change, you can buy additional shares at any time until you own your home outright. You can also sell your share at any time.
