East London is a cultural hub that is home to more than 2.8 million people, making it an attractive business location for those seeking out a new London base. Commercial property in East London can be expensive, but Future Squared offers a broad selection of flexible office space to rent in London that is both high quality and budget friendly.
Whether you're looking to rent a trendy Shoreditch location, prefer professional Canary Wharf, or are partial to Hackney or Bethnal Green, there are flexible workspaces all over East London at affordable prices. Take a look at some of the different property types below to find your perfect new space to rent.
Serviced Office Space in East London
Serviced offices are among the best value for money in East London, but that’s not their only benefit. If you’re looking to move into a new office quickly, or if you need a contract that is flexible to suit your growing business, serviced offices are the go-to choice.
Whether you have one employee or 200, a serviced office space can accommodate you. What’s more, renting serviced spaces is far easier to manage. Your rent, utilities, business rates, insurance, security, and front of house costs are all rolled into one monthly bill, allowing you to keep on top of things far more easily. You'll have access to meeting rooms and breakout areas which may be shared with other businesses in the same building.
With serviced offices, everything is already installed and set up so you're able to move into the new workspace straight away. Desks, chairs, super-fast Wi-Fi, printing facilities, and everything else you need will be handled by the provider, allowing you to get started on your work immediately.
Through a flexible office space from Future Squared, you can reap the rewards of London’s diverse workforce, rich history, and endless business opportunity, but for a reduced price.
Semi Serviced Office Space
Semi-serviced offices are a more cost-effective solution to renting serviced office space. They share many of the same benefits, including the flexible contracts and the all-inclusive monthly bill, but semi-serviced offices do have more restricted services. These workspaces tend not to have front of house services, meaning that you walk straight into your private office without a reception. They also don’t have as many secretarial services, and things like post management may be unavailable.
Despite this, you might find your business doesn’t require these things, meaning semi-serviced offices are ideal. Often cheaper than serviced offices, these are priced by the desk, allowing you to pay only for the amount of space you need.
East London Coworking Office Space to Rent
Coworking presents a great opportunity for networking because your business will be based in the same room as several others. Coworking spaces are very budget-friendly, and all the equipment is included, making them an easy choice for businesses that want to move in straight away with minimal hassle.
Whilst you have to share the space, you can choose between hot desking (changing desks every day) or permanent desking (renting a dedicated desk). There may be some time restrictions, such as only having weekday access to the space, or you might have 24/7 access to the coworking space so your team can choose the working patterns that are best for you. Coworking spaces are one of the most flexible types of office, so whether you're a small startup team or a bigger company with a hybrid working policy, coworking spaces can provide the adaptability you need.
Managed Office Space East London
If you want the freedom to decorate your private office and fit it out to reflect your brand, but you also want the ease that comes with a serviced office, a managed office space is perfect. You can customise your office to reflect your branding, and the cost of the fit-out will be rolled into the monthly fee you pay to cover your rent, bills, insurance, business rates, and more. This means you don't have to handle the entire cost upfront, making it a more budget-friendly way to finance your beautiful branded new space.
Virtual Office Space East London
Remote working has taken off recently and many businesses aren’t prepared to lease a physical office space, but this doesn’t negate the need for a business address. A virtual office means you can register your business to an East London address and have your post directed there, but you can still work remotely. With many virtual offices including mail handling and sometimes phone answering in their contracts, virtual offices can make your life easier and allow you to focus on getting the work done.
Plus, some virtual offices allow access to meeting rooms at discounted rates. If you need to get the whole team together in person for an important meeting or event, these meeting rooms are a great solution.
If you're looking for an affordable and easy alternative to a physical property, virtual offices are the way to go. Moreover, you get to enjoy all the prestige of a great London address without all the cost!
