The huge communal area will have a massive wow factor, boasting comfortable areas to work from rather than formal desk space, you will also be able enjoy a coffee from their inhouse barista, or even a beer from draft. There will be a gym, wellness room and games room, with the building allowing its tenants 24hours access; hopefully they will not want to leave”
