Helical agrees SIA Partners letting at Barts Square
London property developer Helical has secured a further letting at 90 Bartholomew Close, EC1, adding another established business to its diverse roster of tenants in the Barts Square estate.
Management consulting firm SIA Partners has agreed a 10 year lease, with a five year break clause, for 7,564 sq ft across the 4th and 5th floors. The rent is in line with other lettings agreed at the building this year.
90 Bartholomew Close is the recently completed six-storey, 30,427 sq ft office and restaurant building with an attractive, retained Victorian façade that forms parts of the Barts Square estate, being developed by Helical. Office accommodation totals 24,013 sq ft and the restaurant, at ground and lower ground, 6,414 sq ft. 18,620 sq ft (61 per cent) of the building has now been let, with 11,807 sq ft remaining over the second, third and sixth floors. The second floor has recently been fitted out to Cat A and is available on flexible terms.
Delivering Wired Score Gold, bike storage and showering facilities, the property offers contemporary, stylish office space to businesses attracted to the ambience as well as the estate’s convenient location.
Situated between St Paul’s and Smithfield, Barts Square is a 3.2 acre mixed use development comprising 236 high quality apartments, 248,733 sq ft of office space across three buildings, and 21,330 sq ft of new retail space. Independent restaurant operators Wright and Bell, operating as Lino, recently opened to excellent reviews and have already established themselves as a popular addition to the estate. Vegan restaurant Stem + Glory opened in March and a new coffee shop, Halfcup, will be launching soon.
SIA Partners is an international management consulting firm, headquartered in Paris, that serves industries including banking, insurance, healthcare and retail. The group has offices in 15 countries and has over 1,200 consultants worldwide.
Oliver Rippier, Development Executive at Helical, says: “SIA Partners is a high-profile international business who further add to the diversity of tenants on the estate. The continued letting momentum at Barts Square, where we have let over 90,000 sq ft of office space in 2019 alone, shows that forward thinking occupiers appreciate the high-quality public realm, retail offer and unrivalled connectivity of the location.”
