The transformation of Blake House in west London is a superb example of how HBD is able to turn vision into reality.
We prioritised two areas of work: a significant expansion of the office space, as well as a complete redevelopment and refurbishment of the existing building. Now stretching over 31,500 sq ft, this Grade A site is already set to welcome a major tenant and has the potential to accommodate others.
The benefits of the three-storey office in Cowley Business Park are quickly evident. From the double-height glazed reception area through to the stylish and sizeable extension at the rear, the office has an airy and spacious feel with plenty of natural light.
With major businesses close by, such as Xerox, Monster Energy and Mitsubishi, occupants of Blake House are associated with a premium environment. What’s more, they’re well connected too.
Just south of Uxbridge town centre and its amenities, the site is accessed by the A408 and has ample parking for employees and visitors, thanks to the remodelling and landscaping work that has taken place. Close to Uxbridge tube and a two-mile drive from the Crossrail station at West Drayton, due to open in 2022, Blake House is within easy reach of central London. It’s also just 15 minutes away from London Heathrow.
Greater opportunities stem from bigger thinking and HBD is delighted to have played a vital role in creating an office space fit for the 2020s and beyond.
