Central Working co-work space to launch in Paddington

New London site wil be delivered in partnership with British Land and is set to open in May to "support and nurture" businesses in the area

Shared workspace provider Central Working is to launch a new site in Paddington in May this year, in partnership with developer British Land.

The new site, which will occupy the ground floor of 2 Kingdom Street, will look to help “support and nurture” local businesses and marks Central Working’s seventh UK location.

Launched in 2011 by James Layfield and Steve Pette (pictured), Startups Awards winning Central Working offers an office membership model for one person companies, start-ups and bigger businesses, and houses over 1,200 businesses in its various sites including Angry Birds developer Rovio and $1bn cloud communications company Twilio.

The Paddington club follows Central Working’s recent announcement that it is partnering with Cambridge University to open the UK’s largest innovation space next year.

James Layfield, CEO of Central Working, said: “Shared workspaces were seen as the domain of the start-up, but we firmly believe that companies of all sizes are starting to see the benefits of these vibrant, driven communities. The way that business works is evolving and we are proud to be leading the way in the UK with partners such as British Land.”
