Creative agency Tunafish Media has taken a 2,000 sq ft office suite at Canada House, Chepstow Street on a five year lease. The company chosen to move to Canada House to support the growth of the business and the firm is very impressed with the refurbishment plans.
Sam Jones, Tunafish Media said: “We’re blown away by the plans for Canada House and the timing is perfect as we’re going through a period of rapid growth as a business. We are especially excited to get to know our new neighbours as the building fills up, I know there will be a really supportive community of like-minded businesses here.”
The £3 million transformation of the 70,000 sq ft Canada House is well underway and last month Puma announced it would remain in the building and take an extra 3,500 sq ft so it occupies the fifth and sixth floors.
Andrew Cowell, transaction and asset management, OBI Property said: “I am delighted Tunafish are moving into Canada House. There’s a proper buzz about Canada House, it’s building a community of occupiers who value their working environment.”
George Haddo, LJ Partnership said: “We could not have asked for a better start to the transformation of Canada House. It’s clear there’s a lot of love for the building and it’s great to welcome diverse yet, modern and forward thinking businesses to Canada House.”
The work at Canada House will complete in two phases, with a range of office suites to be completed next month and the full project completed by the end of the year.
The building’s infrastructure is being upgraded while a new cycle park will be installed in the basement, with a café, meeting space and screening room added to the ground floor. The available office suites ranging from 250 sq ft to 9,200 sq ft on the first, second, third and fourth floors will be fully refurbished.
