Downing says it has now completed the £5m refurbishment of office space at No 1 Old Hall Street.

Located directly opposite the entrance to Moorfields station, No 1 Old Hall Street now offers 68,000 sq ft of upgraded office accommodation. It meets a range of occupier needs from start-ups, flexible space and more traditional occupiers. 

According to Downing, 22,000 sq ft of space is now available for new tenants across its upper ground, first and fifth floors. It also offers a range of office sizes, from one person suites, upwards.

These are available via Downing’s contemporary flexi-lease model, or more traditional lease arrangement.

Along with the office refurbishments, work has taken place to replace the original façade. This includes a new, insulated, asymmetric, cladding and double-glazed windows at upper levels and double full height glazing and feature signage at lower levels.
