Trilogy Real Estate and LaSalle Investment Management Announce Lettings at East London Creative Campus Republic

Threepipe, The Gentlemen Baristas and Horticulture on board as the scheme’s first phase nears completion

-

Real estate investment and development business Trilogy Real Estate and LaSalle Investment Management, the leading real estate investment manager, today announced four lettings at Republic, the next-gen workplace campus in East India Dock aimed at companies priced out of Central London and Shoreditch.

Threepipe, an independent and award-winning full-service digital agency which counts Nike, The England & Wales Cricket Board and Sweaty Betty among its clients, has shifted its 80 plus staff from Covent Garden to the campus, taking 6,000 sq ft of office space.

Horticulture, a restaurant launch led by chef Marc-Antoine Bodin, will create an independent food offer to coincide with the full launch of the project this spring. Alongside the 2,900 sq ft restaurant, Horticulture will source food locally, including from an on-site garden, and feature a flower shop alongside retro hi-fi systems and all-day DJs.

The Gentlemen Baristas, the coffee start-up near Borough Market, favoured by bloggers and known for its barista school, has announced it will open its fourth café at Republic with a deal for 3,100 sq ft, offering top-quality coffee from its on-site roastery. Its other outposts are at The Building Centre in Bloomsbury and The School House, based at Jerwood Space.

 Hadley, an East London accountancy firm, has also taken 1,000 sq ft of space in Anchorage House.

Robert Wolstenholme, Managing Director of Trilogy Real Estate, said:

“Republic is already attracting young businesses priced out of central London and Shoreditch, and with this series of lettings we are setting the tone for our new creative neighbourhood – a place for our tenants to work, collaborate, innovate and play. Studio RHE’s reimagining of the building and The Trampery’s community management will be catalysts when the building launches fully in May.”

Jim Hawker co-founder and director of Threepipe said:

“Ridiculous rents and rates of central London have forced us and many other creative agencies to look elsewhere to settle and run our businesses. Republic is designed for creative businesses, is competitive in rates and will be a place where our business can expand and grow. We have fast access into the West End and have more flexibility to spend our hard earned money on things other than rent and rates by investing more money into staff training, developing our own IP and attracting talent and clients.”

Republic is already home to The Trampery co-working space and Deliveroo’s East London recruitment hub. Average quoting rents for Republic are in the mid-£30s a sq ft, depending on floor and location in the building.

Republic aims to stem the tide of young companies leaving London by creating 600,000 sq ft of truly affordable workplace that meets contemporary professional and personal needs, with a focus on the core values of creativity, connectivity and affordability.

The first phase of the masterplan include is the transformation of Anchorage House in to 225,000 sq ft of substantially refurbished space with a co-working space. The plans by award-winning architect Studio RHE completely transform the existing first-generation Docklands office development to create a dynamic environment that embodies contemporary work practice.

Extensive landscaping is underway, replacing the streets of the original 1990s development, using planting, open water and trees to create a series of external spaces defined by timber porticos and colonnades.

Trilogy Real Estate and investor LaSalle Investment Management have retained Allsop and CBRE as office agents and CF Commercial and CBRE as retail agents for the scheme.

UK's first office campus wellness director appointed for East London's Republic

Full time nutritional therapist and coach to help workers from Deliveroo, BJP and London Borough of Tower Hamlets improve wellbeing.

-

Republic, the next-gen mixed-use campus in London’s Docklands developed by Trilogy Real Estate, has announced the appointment of a Wellness Director, first of its kind in the UK. Qualified nutritional therapist, trainer and education expert Nikkola Daniel will be based at the estate, and together with her team will provide one-on-one personal training sessions with occupants, group classes and courses such as yoga, HIIT training classes as well as advisory services to new and existing tenants who wish to increase the health, wellbeing and productivity of their staff.  

The appointment will see Nikkola work right across the entire 600,000 sq ft affordable workplace campus, which counts Deliveroo, Trampery and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets among its tenants.

The developer behind Republic, Trilogy Real Estate’s Robert Wolstenholme, said:

“Wellness is here to stay, and while there’s a certain amount of activity that can be designed in, eventually it’s about creating the right culture, collective mindset and personal motivation. We are creating a community for people whose values, interests and mindset are outside of the mainstream and will be at the leading edge of innovation. This goes beyond the buildings and the spaces they occupy but should more importantly be providing experiences that will enrich the time they spend at work. It's about people, ideas, hard work, fun and of course wellbeing. Nikkola’s appointment means we hope to be at the forefront of wellness in the UK, and to be able to offer our tenants at Republic and their employees an incredible knowledge and health resource. We’re delighted to welcome Nikkola to the team and look forward to seeing the benefits right across Republic.”

Nikkola Daniel said:

“Creative environments allow people to enjoy work, finding the balance that’s right for them, and that makes them more productive. In my twenty years in the industry I’ve found employee wellbeing is a benefit to businesses both large and small. What is very often missing though is turning the concept of wellbeing into action.  I’m looking forward to engaging directly with Republic’s tenants and occupants to embed wellness into the ethos and aesthetics of the physical, cultural, social and emotional working environment, creating balance and establishing a programme that’s accessible, effective and engaging, that gets people moving and mindful.”

The programme kicks off with a week’s free taster wellness activities on the estate on 7 August, focusing on common issues around desk-related work.

‘BE WELL’ REPUBLIC will see:

-          Posture focused yoga, body realignment sessions

-          Lunch and post-work outdoor body conditioning and core sculpting HIIT classes

-          Mindful movement Tai Chi to calm the mind and improve memory and focus

-          Personal training sessions

-          Nutritional therapy smoothie workshops

-          Meditation and mindfulness sessions including guided loving kindness and sound baths

The ongoing programme will include an onsite healthy snack service, holistic clinic, staff wellness days and weekends, a series of talks from wellness experts, a nutritional programme and consultation with existing and new tenants. Nikkola and her team will be based at Trampery at Republic, and will work right across the estate.
