Huckletree, the leading innovator in curated coworking spaces, has announced it is moving to two of London’s most enviable postcodes.

The latest opening into Liverpool Street and Kensington take their total footprint to over 250,000 sq ft in the UK and Ireland and follow the opening of Huckletree Oxford Circus, which is already at 80 per cent occupancy.

Huckletree’s new hub in London’s Oxford Circus is dedicated to serving Web3 and AI companies scaling across the capital, and is home to industry leaders and scaling startups including SurrealDB, which raised $6M for its database-as-a-service offering in January.

The company is now expanding its London footprint into sought-after areas including Kensington and Liverpool Street, as it looks to tap into businesses and entrepreneurial communities that are evolving the landscape of these neighbourhoods.

For example, Kensington is no longer focused solely on retail while Liverpool Street is now set to receive a fresh wave of technology and FinTech firms.

The next two openings are part of Huckletree’s wider expansion plans to launch an additional 140,000 sq ft of space within the next 12 months.

They coincide with London being identified as the world’s number one coworking city, out-scoring other global cities such as Lisbon for those looking for flexible working patterns.

Huckletree also operates in Manchester and Dublin and is looking to grow footprint in both of these cities also due to increased demand as they grow as thriving locations for innovation and coworking.

Huckletree Kensington will open its doors in early 2024 and will bring six floors of turnkey, flexible office space to the iconic West London neighbourhood.
