Hana, a subsidiary of CBRE Group has announced its first three planned UK flexible workspace locations in London at 70 St Mary Axe, expected to open in late 2019; 245 Hammersmith, expected to also open in late 2019; and St Martin’s Court, initially to be fully occupied by 500 CBRE employees.
At 70 St Mary Axe, Hana will partner with the property’s owner, global investment manager Nuveen Real Estate, to create a dynamic, flexible workspace. The interior benefits from 360° panoramic glass, offering some of the most enviable views in London. Hana will occupy the entire second, third and fourth floors as well as operating a lounge space which connects to a retail and events space via a dramatic eight meter helical staircase. All tenants in the building will have access to the retail, events and lounge spaces, as well as a suite of Hana flexible solutions, Hana Meet and Hana Share.
Hana has also partnered with LGIM Real Assets (Legal & General) and Mitsubishi Estate for its planned 245 Hammersmith location, a 242,000 sq ft landmark new development which includes a public plaza and an urban Park, as well as retail and restaurants. Inside, the architectural windows provide natural light to enhance mood and increase productivity. Hana will occupy the first and second floors which will include an outdoor patio.
Hana’s third facility, St Martin’s Court, has been established in partnership with the landlord Oxford Properties. Located next to St Paul’s Cathedral in the heart of the City of London, the office element of the property comprises over 100,000 sq ft. The Hana facility will initially be fully occupied by approximately 500 CBRE employees who will operate from the space while the company’s existing UK headquarters at Henrietta House in the West End is undergoing redevelopment work. Hana at St Martin’s Court will become available to other occupants in early 2021.
Andrew Kupiec, CEO of Hana said: “We are delighted to launch Hana in the UK with three superb buildings, all of which provide a perfect fit for our unique solution – creating flexible workspaces that are designed to meet the needs of high-growth and enterprise companies as well as provide more transparency and upside for the property owners.
“We’re looking forward to making these locations showpieces for our growing global network.”
Since launching the company in late 2018, Hana has also announced its first two US locations, in Dallas, Texas and Irvine, California.
