The top three floors totaling 24,000 sq ft of The Avenue have been pre-let to global travel technology company Skyscanner, reports Exemplar.
Following the letting to Skyscanner, 47,000 sq ft remains at the building, set over four contiguous floors, which is being marketed by joint agents CBRE and Savills.
Michael Bucknell, Development Director at Exemplar, commented:
“We purposefully invest in the design and quality of our buildings to attract occupiers of Skyscanner’s calibre, so we are delighted to welcome them as our first major pre-let at The Avenue. The quality of the building, together with the arrival of Crossrail and the West End Project improvements, has generated an increasing level of interest from occupiers from a range of sectors who can appreciate that what is happening here is very special.”
Peter Ferrari, Chief Executive of AshbyCapital, added:
“The appeal of The Avenue to forward-thinking businesses is clear: this is an impressive new building in an area set to become the heart of London’s West End. With exceptional bars, restaurants and shopping, as well as strong and improving transport connections, this is a fantastic location for business. With Facebook, Estee Lauder, Freud Communications and NBC Universal all choosing the area around Tottenham Court Road to base their businesses, Skyscanner will be in good company.”
Bryan Dove, Chief Technology Officer at Skyscanner, said:
“As a leading travel search company, Skyscanner continues to recruit at pace. We’ve seen our London headcount grow five-fold in just a year and anticipate recruiting 100 more employees in the capital in 2017. The new office space at The Avenue provides us with an extremely central location from which we can continue to expand our operations.”
CBRE and Savills are the office agents for The Avenue; JLL acted for Skyscanner.
