JLL advises Danone on 42,000 sq ft HQ at Chiswick Park


Chiswick Park, the pioneering business community in West London, asset managed by Blackstone, has secured its first tenant for Building 7, the new 334,000 sq ft building completed in September 2015.

 

Leading global food company Danone is establishing a new London headquarters at Chiswick Park, agreeing a 10 year lease for 42,000 sq ft of office space and will occupy part of the 5th and the 6th floors of Building 7 at the 33-acre Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners-designed, award winning development. JLL advised Danone throughout the transaction.

 

One of London's most successful and pioneering business destinations, Chiswick Park​ is home to over 8,000 employees from 45 of the world's best known brands, including Discovery, PepsiCo, Aker Solutions and Starbucks. 

 

Chiswick Park is renowned for its revolutionary Enjoy-Work brand, a business lifestyle ethos which believes if people enjoy their work, they do better work. This is manifested by the estate management team who are responsible for creating and maintaining an innovative work environment and delivering a programme of events and services aimed at improving business productivity.  

 

Danone has a reputation for being one of the UK's most progressive employers, featuring in the prestigious Times Top 100 Graduate Employers guide, in addition to the Great Place to Work Top 20 Workplaces and the Times Top 50 Employers for Women.

 

Danone's move will create two UK bases for the business, at Chiswick Park and in Trowbridge, Wiltshire, bringing together Danone's three FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) businesses on one site in Chiswick .     

 

Ed Hodgson, Leasing Director for Blackstone Property Management, said:  "We're delighted to welcome Danone to Chiswick Park.  The company represents a perfect fit for the park and sets a benchmark for the calibre of companies we expect to attract to Building 7.  We look forward to Danone joining the group of market leading brands already based on site."

 

James Mayer from Danone said, "We have chosen Chiswick Park as the new location for one of our two UK head office sites because of the synergies between our business culture and Enjoy-Work's ethos that if people enjoy work, they work better. Our new, custom-designed offices will ensure that we continue to encourage creativity, an entrepreneurial spirit and offer greater opportunities to collaborate as we grow our UK business."

 

Savills, CBRE and DTRE are the joint letting agents for Chiswick Park.  JLL acted for Danone.
