“We expect this to continue as our transformative renovations continue, and a range of high-quality wellness-focused workspaces are completed. Offices continue to be a vital part of our working lives and ensuring they cater to modern post-Covid occupational needs is critical. “

A variety of spaces ranging from about 6000 sq ft to 46,000 sq ft remain available. Savills and Bray Fox Smith are the appointed leasing agents at Bloom.
