The Boutique Workplace Company has signed a management agreement for 16 – 18 Middlesex Street on the edge of the City of London in Aldgate. This will be the firm’s fourth opening in 2024, as it reached 40 locations in May. Specializing in unique fit-outs within characterful buildings in London, the flexible workspace provider has signed the agreement with Unite Students and will offer affordable workspace.

Unite Student’s 24-story development is mixed use and has 920 purpose-built homes for students to study, socialize and relax in one of London’s most popular areas. It features an exhibition area, cinema room, study rooms and stylish common areas. Boutique’s office premise will be completely separate, with a dedicated entrance, offering 10,300 square feet across ground, first, second and third floors.

With a planned opening in autumn, The Boutique Workplace Company will offer occupiers a range of fully furnished private offices, breakout spaces and meeting rooms, benefitting from excellent natural light and high ceilings throughout. It will also offer key amenities including phone booths, showers, bike racks, lockers, and the workplace will be dog-friendly.

As part of the company’s Boutique Collection, 16 – 18 Middlesex Street will be finished to a high specification to complement the landlord’s new development that sits prominently on the corner of Middlesex Street and St. Botolph Street in Aldgate. Boutique are a leading provider in London and their locations are all individual and unbranded, making them suitable for a wide range of businesses and occupiers.

“This is my third transaction with Boutique since 2020 as I continue to assist them in their growth plans across London and beyond. More now than ever, landlords continue to embrace joint ventures with operators due to the demand of flexibility and high-quality office space full of amenities that occupiers command. The Boutique Workplace company comes with the expertise and experience for this well-known provider of student accommodation,” said Piers Barttelot, Director at Reesa.

“We’re really pleased to be part of a partnership with Unite Students offering much-needed affordable workspace on the edge of the City in 16 – 18 Middlesex Street. It’s an agreement that works for both sides. This is far beyond a box ticking exercise for us – this is premium space finished to a high standard and will offer plenty of natural light and great amenities. As with all Boutique Workplace Company locations, we’ve worked with the character of established building, playing to its heritage and location, whilst always offering a high-quality, fully flexible workspaces,” said Daniel Wheble, CEO of The Boutique Workplace Company.

The company has recently opened its doors to 24 Lime Street in the heart of the City of London, as well as 9 George Square in Glasgow and 32 Threadneedle Street in the City. 24 Lime Street has been designed to reflect the vibrant street it’s located on, with a variety of bright colors used to attract occupiers from both the tech and creative sector who often ask for something different in the typically corporate City market. A former furniture warehouse, the building sits amongst iconic modern skyscrapers, including the Walkie Talkie highlighting the traditional character of the original building.
