Paddington Basin Explored
The arrival of the Paddington Basin development breathed new life into this now thriving area of West London. Now home to international businesses and grade ‘A’ office solutions, we explore what makes Paddington Basin’s such a popular location.
When you visit the Paddington Basin development, you find yourself in an area of the UK capital that very much feels likes its own town. From the attractive canal side developments, to the purposeful and modern architecture – the area possesses a personality.
Couple this with the fantastic transport links that place the West End and most of Central London within 20 minutes travel, it is perhaps unsurprising why it has grown into such an attractive destination for business.
Office Space Market
The office space available in Paddington Basin is grade ‘A’ in standard, meaning this is not an low-cost location in which to secure business premises. That said workstation prices remain around 25% lower than in Mayfair to the south.
The development is clustered around Paddington Station, which not only offers underground services into the heart of the West End, but also direct access to Heathrow Airport via the Heathrow Express.
In addition to inbound and international connections, Paddington also benefits from the proximity of the A4 and easy access to the Motorway network.
While Paddington is home to a wide variety of businesses from various sectors, there is unquestionably a notable concentration of US tech-based firms operating in the area. The arrival of the Heathrow Express service at Paddington Station certainly helps to attract businesses with this profile.
After all, Paddington is only a 20 minute journey from Heathrow and once there the bright lights of London’s West End are just a tube journey away.
