Citibase to boost local economy with new flexible office in Uxbridge
Citibase has opened a vibrant new work hub in Uxbridge, West London, with potential to provide over 28,000 sq ft of flexible and affordable serviced office space. Housed inside The Atrium building across two floors, the centre provides the perfect space for SMEs, start-ups, entrepreneurs and larger corporates looking to join the flexible working revolution.
The Atrium is a striking building in the heart of Uxbridge which has been comprehensively refurbished, boasting an expansive light-filled reception and communal area with break out spaces and on-site café. There are a range of amenities on the doorstep including The Pavilions and Intu shopping centres, as well as Uxbridge underground station a five minute walk away, which is served by both the Metropolitan line and the Piccadilly lines.
Situated in the London Borough of Hillingdon, Uxbridge has a burgeoning local economy. This is in part driven by its proximity to the M25 and M40 motorways and Heathrow Airport just a 15 minute drive away, making it an ideal business destination. Blue chip companies in the area include Xerox UK, Canon and Coca Cola, in addition to a wealth of fast growing start-ups also emerging.
Steve Jude, CEO of Citibase, comments: “Citibase Uxbridge will provide much needed affordable office space that allows local businesses to thrive, with the flexibility to easily change the size of their space as they grow without the pain of typical long lease commitments. The opening of Citibase Uxbridge is reflective of a booming sector, where we are seeing particularly strong growth outside of central London.”
“The world of work has changed forever and continues to evolve – as evidenced by our own Citibase Business Confidence Index which revealed that 77% of SMEs want lease lengths of less than three years. It’s not just small companies that can benefit either, leading consultancy JLL has predicted that 2019 will see a sharp rise in the number of large businesses embracing this model.”
As with Citibase’s other business centres throughout the UK, Citibase Uxbridge will offer suites in various sizes, from one person to much larger spaces, making it ideal for businesses at every stage of their development. The centre also enjoys superfast broadband with a range of internet and telecoms packages, 24-hour access, on-site bicycle parking, meeting rooms as well as a friendly Concierge team offering a variety of business support services.
