Headspace Group further expands UK footprint with first move into the Midlands
Headspace Group, the London-based coworking specialist, is set to expand with the launch of its fourth site and first foray into the Midlands.
The boutique operator will occupy a 12,000 sq ft space in Birmingham, which is part of a 36,300 sq ft space being leased (15-year FRI) by parent company BE Offices.
Located on Temple Street in Birmingham city centre, Somerset House has been recently redeveloped by Circle Property plc. The deal brings Headspace’s portfolio to over 60,000 sq ft.
Launched in September 2013, Headspace provides work and event space for the UK’s tech, media and creative communities.
This is the latest expansive move for Headspace, which launched a Manchester space in 2017 and has spaces in London’s Farringdon and Marylebone.
The boutique operator was acquired by flexible workspace provider BE Offices in November 2017 which, at the time, announced its intention to expand the Headspace brand to as many as 20 spaces over three years.
The Birmingham site will comprise of a mix of designed private offices and coworking spaces, all equipped to a high specification and with a dedicated on-site team responsible for curating social and business events for members.
Jonathan Hausmann, head of marketing and client experience at Headspace Group, said: “With BE Offices’ expertise, infrastructure and resources behind us, we’re aiming to be one of the UK’s leading providers of coworking and flexible workspace.
“Britain’s second city has long been an entrepreneurial hotspot and it’s an obvious next step for Headspace.
“Our proposition is pretty straightforward: we’re looking to create an environment where local businesses can thrive in a beautiful, community-driven space and with total flexibility. Birmingham’s booming and we’re looking forward to being part of that story!”
