Grosvenor converts historic London building into creative space
A former ice factory in Southwest/Central London has a been relaunched as a creative enterprise hub by property giant Grosvenor Britain & Ireland.
The five-storey near-29,000 sq ft rework in Eccleston Place, now known as the Ice Factory, includes retail/work/maker space within the 200-year-old Buckley Grey Yeoman designed building. It comes with the only rooftop restaurant space in the area.
A single occupier is being sought “who can deliver all elements the space offers from food and beverage through to retail and work/maker space, building on Eccleston Yard’s reputation as a dynamic creative hub”, the owner said.
Property owners are increasingly targeting creatives and small businesses to take space in quirky developments such as this, which means designers, marketers and entrepreneurs can find a base in central London in the kind of environment that encourages creativity. It will be interesting to see how this one develops in the years ahead and what single occupier Grosvenor finds to drive its vision forward.
Charles Howard, Director of Offices, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland said: "Ice Factory is a hugely versatile space packed with the kind of character and heritage that’s hard to find in the core of the West End.
"It’s the perfect base for a single occupier looking for an inspiring space and wider neighbourhood offer that will attract talent and customers and we are already receiving offers of interest”.
