Through the active management of it’s Queens Park Estate, BPP identified a gap in the London market – people want to work closer to home in high-quality workspace meeting the needs of modern occupiers whilst feeling part of the local community.
In partnership with a leading SWF, the AKOYA venture was formed in Sep 2019 with the aim of providing sustainable workplaces for creative businesses in London’s flourishing neighbourhoods. It is a progressive workplace strategy, focusing on localism and a work-life balance for occupiers. Healthy lifestyles, occupier wellbeing and local communities form some of the key themes.
