The Euston centre is located within a grand, Georgian redbrick building on Upper Woburn Place just off Euston Road, offering commuters a convenient place to work while they wait for transport connections. The new City location is in New London House, in the heart of the Square Mile next to Fenchurch Street mainline station and Tower Hill Underground.
This brings Regus’ network in the capital to 78 locations, and 230 in the UK.
The new centres are already attracting start-ups looking for high-specification co-working space, growing firms whose office space requirements are rapidly changing, large firms seeking a central London base and business travellers looking for somewhere productive to work for a few hours.
Robert Sinclair, Chief Executive of the Milton Keynes-based Association of Mortgage Intermediaries splits his time between MK and London, using Regus meeting rooms or business lounges as his base in the capital.
“Whether I’m meeting government departments in Westminster, members in Canary Wharf or banks in the City, I need access to professional workspace and the Regus network is ideal,” says Mr Sinclair.
Commenting on the new centre in Euston, he says: “Although the train line from Milton Keynes to London is excellent, things don’t always go to plan when you travel so I always prefer to get into London early.
“Regus’ new venue near the station will be a great place to work before my meetings. Equally when I have to wait for a train back to MK, I can use my Gold card to drop into the business lounge which is better than trying to work in a café.”
John Spencer, UK CEO at Regus comments: “Every addition to the Regus network offers our members another location where they can work productively, in a global environment, and focus on growing their business.
“Today’s entrepreneurs are operating in a very different world to their predecessors and don’t need the twentieth century trappings of business, such as high fixed overheads and long leases. They are agile, working across multiple locations to get closer to their clients and to fit work to their lifestyle.”
Drop-in and part-time workspace are the fastest growing areas of Regus’ business. Regus Businessworld Gold membership costs £35 per month, giving unlimited access to the business lounges within any of the 230 Regus centres across the country.
