“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.

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. 

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 colours used to attract occupiers from both the tech and creative sector who often ask for something different in the typically corporate City market.

“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.”
