Waterside House is located in Paddington Basin, offering a canal-side mixed commercial and retail environment. It is Marks & Spencer’s London HQ with a lease commitment to 2028 and as the forever owner Brockton Everlast is looking to secure the long term future of this building beyond this point.
Paddington has also undergone significant change, and there is an opportunity to sensitively upgrade and extend the building for modern requirements.
To provide improved and more welcoming public spaces which engage with both the building and the canal as well as the wider Paddington public realm.
To activate the ground floor, as well as provide cultural and retail space and affordable workspace that will reflect local priorities
To sustainably retain, adapt and extend the existing building to deliver a building which can attract world-leading occupiers.
To improve the carbon efficiency of the 2003 building and eliminate fossil fuel use.
The life sciences sector is among the most valuable and strategically important in the UK, critical to the country’s health, wealth and resilience. Life sciences includes a wide range of activities, making significant advancements in medicine and biology. Life sciences study living things and how they work. They ask questions about health and how our bodies function. Scientists in this field explore how life starts, grows and changes. Life sciences also look at how different creatures interact with each other and their environments. By understanding life better, we can find new ways to improve health, protect nature, and solve problems related to living things. This building can provide a range of life science uses, that will be integrated with Paddington life sciences cluster and will be sensitive to the context of the area.
The current form and its structure along with new extended floor plates could accommodate laboratories, write up space, cleanrooms, optical laboratories and automation & robotics. Our vision will act as a catalyst for the Paddington life sciences hub as well as integrate with the wider regeneration, especially St Mary’s Hospital redevelopment.
