Downing builds up Vauxhall’s Grade A office space offering

Property developer Downing has celebrated the completion of its latest contemporary office development project, Miles Yard in Vauxhall.


Set within Vauxhall’s thriving and rapidly expanding commercial community, the 27,547 sq ft Grade A office space is now available as a ‘HQ style’ single let or individual, highly efficient single floor plates. These range in size from 1,6900 to 4,600 sq ft, with CAT A+ fitted spaces also being provided, ready for occupiers to ‘plug and play’.


Floors benefit from full height glazing, providing natural light and outstanding views, with the building set within a secure, private estate, which has direct off-street access.


Miles Yard has achieved an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM score and an A-24 EPC rating, putting it in the top two per cent of the UK’s non-domestic buildings for sustainability. Working alongside architects, TP Bennett and Liverpool-based architecture firm KKA, facilities are tailored to facilitate a healthy work-life balance, including 50 cycle racks, 50 lockers, five showers, 25 self-drying cabinets, a cycle repair station and a private entrance for commuters, alongside a private winter garden and a rooftop multi-use games area, which incorporates a static gym. High speed Wi-Fi is delivered to each floor, ready for tenant connection.


Located in London’s Zone 1, the building is just a two-minute walk to Vauxhall station which provides both Victoria Line and Overground connectivity. Nine Elms Station and the Northern Line is only a six-minute walk away.


A host of amenities surround Miles Yard including bars, gyms, restaurants, shops and hotels, including the 1,400 sq ft of retail space on the ground floor of Miles Yard.


This is not the first development Downing has completed in the neighbourhood, following the delivery of 37-storey student accommodation development, Vega, which comprises 841 beds and Atlas, the 32-storey student development providing 570 bedrooms.


John Clegg, Head of Property at Downing, said: “Both Vauxhall and the wider Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area (VNEBO) business communities are flourishing and expanding exponentially.


“Miles Yard delivers a high-quality Grade A alternative for existing local occupiers looking to upgrade or for new businesses seeking to relocate to the area. We’ve put sustainability, wellness and work-life balance at the forefront of our thoughts in delivering Miles Yard and we are more than ready to welcome like-minded stakeholders to join us.
