Land Securities agrees three new lettings at 20 Eastbourne Terrace, W2
Land Securities has secured three new lettings at 20 Eastbourne Terrace, W2. The deals, which total 24,000 sq ft and are all on a 10 year lease, will see businesses including Citrix and LivaNova join existing customers The Office Group and Coty in Paddington.
The lettings include levels 15 and 16 to Citrix, an American multinational software company and level four to LivaNova, a medical device manufacturer. The latest lettings mean the building is now 90% let with only two floors still available.
Kaela Fenn-Smith, Head of Commercial at Land Securities, said: "These lettings are a great endorsement of the product we have created at 20 Eastbourne Terrace. By putting the needs of our customer at the heart of our building design, we continue to attract a diverse range of businesses to our space."
20 Eastbourne Terrace, situated next to Paddington underground, mainline and Crossrail stations, totals 92,000 sq ft of office space designed by Fletcher Priest in collaboration with Stiff & Trevillion architects. The building includes a substantial café, collaboration and business lounge at ground floor level, a 2,000 sq ft roof garden on level 17 shared by all customers, and fantastic facilities including new cycle spaces, showers, lockers and changing rooms.
Jacqueline de Rojas, Area Vice President, Northern Europe at Citrix, said: "Citrix is excited to join the 20 Eastbourne Terrace community. As we expand our footprint in London, we look forward to opening an innovative, flagship space for our customers and partners -- to showcase our technology and allow people from across the Citrix community to #workhardanywhere."
