There is a lot of evidence that a great office in a good location can work wonders for team productivity. Whilst we wouldn’t advocate everyone staring out of the window all day, a good waterfront office space view can also work wonders on the soul.
Great views are often hard to come by in big towns and cities with many offices overlooking the buildings they are next to. A view of water can be quite difficult to find in a busy business district, but we know there are a number of locations that offer waterfront views, with everything from the river Thames to the quayside developments around Canary Wharf and Media City in Manchester.
Here are five brilliant office locations with waterfront views to die for:
The waterfront in Salford, Manchester has been revitalised in to a leading tourist destination as well as a busy new business district in the North West. Boasting its own Imperial War Museum it also has the Lowry Outlet Mall with many top designer brands. There are also many places to eat and some great bars with views across the water.
The waterfront has attracted many top businesses like the BBC who famously relocated here from White City in London.
Our featured serviced offices offer 32 office suites for 2 to 8 people and have beautifully crafted British made furniture. Along with outstanding IT, this location is ideal for any business looking for a truly impressive business address.
There is a lot to be impressed about in Canary Wharf. The area is now London’s second financial district with several of the UK’s tallest buildings which includes One Canada Square that can be seen as far away as Harlow and the M11 motorway.
Canary Wharf has several shopping malls with a variety of stores including Waitrose and Monsoon as well as a wide variety of places to eat. There are many great bars and restaurants right on the waterfront and even an interesting museum is located here too, dedicated to the history of the docks.
