Docklands Debate

News that the London Borough of Newham is willing to move out of its 22,297 sq m (240,000 sq ft) Building 1000 at the Royals Business Park, Royal Albert Way, Docklands, London, E16, which it only occupied in 2008, is surely a sign of the times.

The council says it cannot find tenants for the 24 buildings it vacated back in 2008 and to save money it would rather give up its shiny new HQ, than keep maintaining a lot of empty town hall space.

Development Securities’ and Standard Life’s building  was completed in early 2004 and took over 3 years to find Newham as its tenant.

Currently Metropolis is tracking only a small number of office requirements in East London big enough to fill the building so a deal doesn’t look likely in the short term.
