We are delighted to announce that together with joint agents Knight Frank, we have recently been instructed on the office letting of an entire building a stone’s throw from Tavistock Square, WC1.

Tavistock Square is one of the foremost public squares in Bloomsbury – an area well known for the large number of garden squares. Tavistock Square was built shortly after 1806 by James Burton – a well-known regency property developer – and Thomas Cubitt who was a master builder at the time. The square was built on behalf of Francis Russell, 5th Duke of Bedford, forming part of the Bedford Estate in London. The square takes its names from Marquess of Tavistock which is a courtesy title given to the eldest sons of the Dukes of Bedford.

Tavistock Square is home to a wide range of art including the centrepiece of the gardens – a statue of Mahatma Gandhi sculped by Polish sculptor Fredda Brilliant which was installed in 1968. The statue stands on a hollow pedestal which is designed to be used for people wanting to leave tributes to the Indian independence campaigner. In addition, Tavistock Square is also home to the Conscientious Objectors’ Commemorative Stone which commemorates all conscientious objectors in history. In addition, a cherry tree was planted on the square in 1967 in memory of the victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. There is also a memorial to the victims of the 7/7 bombings on the square where one of the bombs was detonated, with many from the nearby British Medical Association located nearby providing on the scene medical assistance. There is also a bust of the author Virginia Woolf which was unveiled in 2004 and is cast from a 1931 sculpture by Bloomsbury Set artist Stephen Tomlin.

Due to all this history, Tavistock Square and the surrounding street are incredibly sought after for a wide range of different office occupiers. Proximity to green space is a major boon for office occupiers. In addition, Tavistock Square is also located near a number of Underground and Mainline stations including London Euston, Russell Square, and Euston Square which all provide easy access to a variety of different underground lines and – in the case of London Euston – train routes to the rest of the country.

As a result of all these benefits, we are delighted to be marketing an office to let located at 4 Tavistock Place. The property has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment behind the retained façade, providing modern open plan office accommodation with fantastic outside space and terraces. The property is self contained and is set across 7 floors with a total floor area of 5,704 square feet.

Finished to the highest possible standard, the reception features a stunning geometric tiled floor and timber panelled walls. The building itself features a new rear façade, rear terraces, and a rare private garden. The property has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment and features new bike racks, showers, WCs, LED lighting, and comfort cooling. The dual aspect offices provide incredibly bright space which are adaptable to an occupier’s needs. We are certain that these stunning offices will make the perfect home for occupiers across a range of different industries including professional services companies or the creative industries.
