Gensler Takes 30k SF At Newly Launched Moretown Development
Resolution Property launched Moretown, the rebranded Thomas More Square estate in Wapping, London, with confirmation of a major pre-letting to Gensler, the world’s largest architecture, design, planning and consulting practice.
Gensler signed a 15-year lease to occupy 30k SF at one of the refurbished buildings within the 560k SF Moretown campus. In 2017 it will move its 220 employees in from its current London headquarters at Aldgate House, EC3N, to a state-of-the-art facility that will provide space for future expansion.
Gensler will create a space at Moretown that is tailored to the specific needs of its highly creative workforce. Adopting a research-led approach, the company’s workplace designers have helped companies, including Instagram, Adidas, Aon and UBM, to create efficient work environments that drive creativity and job satisfaction.
Under the newly unveiled Moretown brand, the Thomas More Square estate will be repositioned to create an inspiring design-led campus for the needs of modern business in media, technology, finance and innovation. The wider estate is already home to Sky TV, IPSOS Mori, Digital Window, Thales and Handelsbanken.
Resolution Property and its cornerstone investor, Fosun Property, bought the estate from Land Securities in March 2016 for £300M.
