Cluttons Flexible Office Space successfully worked with Ape TV to find them their own space in Shoreditch. Ape TV, a small mobile app company, had been in serviced office space but wanted to be more independent but still have a flexible lease and inclusive costs.
How we helped
- Ape TV's brief was 'find us space for 8 people on a yearly inclusive cost basis that doesn't look like a conventional office – we want rough & raw!
- We approached landlords in Shoreditch to find on and off-market space that could be let 'as is' on a short-term basis.
- We presented options to Ape TV and conducted viewings.
- Once space had been agreed on with Ape TV we worked with the landlord to produce a short-term licence agreement to cover all outgoings – rent/ rates/service charge/utilities.
- Ape TV found a new home for their business that gave them flexibility, inclusive costs and a better place to work and play (onsite table tennis!)
- The landlord has let 1,000 sq ft of what was previously difficult to let space and has now rolled out this approach to other space in the same and other buildings.
