London's changing skyline and the rise of the City office

London's changing skyline and the rise of the City office

London’s skyline is changing dramatically. Commercial skyscrapers are shooting up across London and in fact, as it stands today there are a staggering 230 new towers currently being built. The Gherkin is about to be accompanied by its cousin ‘The Cucumber’ in Westminster, and ‘The Boomerang’, ‘The Pinnacle’ and ‘The Scalpel’ will be added to the City’s ever-changing skyline over the next couple of years.

Demand for Serviced Office Space Continues to Grow in The City

Demand for Serviced Office Space Continues to Grow in The City

Serviced office spaces make a lot of sense for start-ups. They’re convenient, easy to arrange and very flexible, making them especially attractive to SMEs whose turbulent beginnings may result in frequent relocation. But a recent study by Ramidus Consulting Limited, commissioned by the City of London Corporation, has revealed that many serviced office occupiers are much more stable and can occupy the same space for as long as five years or more.

Swing By to Your New Flexible Serviced Project Office! (Wait, my what?)

Swing By to Your New Flexible Serviced Project Office! (Wait, my what?)

If there's one thing that every industry has in common, it's jargon.

From the SEO and CTR of marketing to the Chapter 11 of finances, not to mention the computing vocabulary that's RAMmed full of confusing terminology, it's often difficult to follow - let alone understand.

Commercial property is no different, and this long-standing industry has developed some pretty impressive froth and jargon over the centuries. How does an 'alienation' grab you? Or dilapidation? Not forgetting AGA (not the cooker), GIA and IR leases, of course.

Life through a screen

Life through a screen (or six): Are we taking digital screens too far?

Remember the one about sitting too close to the TV?

Happily, we never did get square eyes. But it turns out that our elders' concerns over too much screen-time are indeed well-founded.

Our lives, be at it work or at home, are governed by screens. They're everywhere, from the electronic devices you carry around in your pocket to the equipment on your desk. You'll find them in the lift, at reception, in meeting rooms and even in the back of a taxi.

PSST! Where's The Best Place For An Office Gossip?

PSST! Where's The Best Place For An Office Gossip?

If you've ever worked in an open-plan office, you'll know that more often than not, very few conversations in the office are work-related. From last night's episode of the Great British Bake Off to Friday's work night out, office communication frequently strays outside the professional arena and into something altogether more fun and frivolous.

What's hiding at the back of your desk drawers?

What's hiding at the back of your desk drawers?

Monday morning is just around the corner, so if you're looking for the perfect way to ease yourself in gradually, may we suggest a marathon desk drawer-clearing exercise. It will make you look super-busy, you'll be at your desk (technically), and you'll also get to put off reading those 526 emails that have amassed in your inbox... at least for another few minutes.

Whilst undertaking one of these procrastination important exercises, the Landmark Plc team found quite a few unexpected surprises lurking at the back of the office cupboards.

Fowl Play Sky High in the City

Fowl Play Sky High in the City

Usually, the only bird-like activity you'll find at Landmark Plc is the 'tweeting' kind.

That is, unless you happen to be passing 125 Old Broad Street. Crane skywards and you might just spot a swooping, predatory figure, wings outstretched, occupying a commanding spot high above the business centre rooftops.

Is it a bird? Well yes, it is. A kite, to be precise (not the feathered variety), shaped like a bird of prey and anchored to the upper echelons of Landmark Plc's Old Broad Street business centre.

Natural Networking (it's networking, but not as you know it)

Natural Networking (it's networking, but not as you know it)

Think of a serviced office and what springs to mind? Flexible contracts, short-term offices, affordable workspace?

You can expect all of the above and more from a serviced office, such as those provided by Yours Truly. But one quite significant perk that you might not have considered is the networking opportunities that come with it.
