About two years ago there was a bidding war between the more established co-working companies to secure a unit of about 10,000 sq ft from Hackney Council in an old 1960s Office building. The floor plate was of interest as it was cheap, although needed plenty of work and had a good floor plate for serviced offices or co-working. It’s availability came at a time before Tech City Startups really started to explode and when Google Campus established itself as a magnet.
So two years later and a new partner Publicis Worldwide, The Trampery has launched it’s new space, adding to existing sites in Clerkenwell, Hackney Wick, London Fields and another in Old Street. In terms of floor space The Trampery is probably one of the biggest co-working companies in London, preferring strategic partnerships to help foster young companies get a foothold in the world of business. For instance the Hackney London Fields building has a fashion bias, and this new Old Street building may look to attract companies that can benefit from the skill set of Publicis Worldwide.
In terms of pricing for desks £400.00 per desk per month all inclusive is the rate. And the Trampery have set out the requirements as follows:
- Looking to attract businesses with teams of 1-15 people
- Aiming for 70% of members from product-focused technology businesses
- 30% of members from other creative sectors including design, fashion, publishing, media & consulting
As part of the partnership with Publicis Worldwide the space is also incorporating a large events and meeting room set up. The Publicis connection is called the Drugstore. Members will have the use of meeting rooms, kitchens and our opinion is that this co-working space is going to be of interest to companies looking for a large offices space in Shoreditch, where their growth can be incorporated given the actual size of the space. Most buildings being run by co-working companies are normally between 2000 – 5000 sq ft.
