Halkin secures former Barclays Wealth HQ on Brook Street, Mayfair

Halkin Management, the new serviced office venture from Michael Kingshott, has agreed a management contract with the Maybourne Group, owners of Claridges, on the former Barclays Wealth head office at 41-43 Brook Street, Mayfair, London.

Opening in 2016, the stunning period building has been extensively refurbished and will provide a high quality serviced office, together with a club lounge and co-working space. Spread over four floors, totaling 25,000 sq. ft. the property offers a grand entrance sweeping round to an exceptional members’ lounge which tenants can use to entertain their guests or as a private workspace.

Halkin’s Brook Street location will add some of the highest quality serviced office space to the London market with a number of different sized offices which can be tailored to meet tenants’ requirements. The large garden, a unique addition to a central London office, boasts WIFI throughout and is available to all tenants. A host of meeting rooms and other services will be available for tenants and companies looking to invite their clients to a prestigious location.

Michael Kingshott commented: “41-43 Brook Street is a unique, self-contained building in prime West End. Its period features enable us to offer an exclusive product to clients who require flexibility, a prestigious address and an office solution which exceeds expectations. We are creating a new serviced office brand, which focusses on high levels of service in prime locations. Our flagship office will serve as a taster for the pipeline of buildings we have coming online over the next 18 months. We are very excited about working with Maybourne to launch our flagship Halkin office in the heart of Mayfair.”
