15 minutes’ walk to Hyde Park. 15 minutes direct on the train to Heathrow. 15 minutes to Canary Wharf via the Elizabeth Line. 15 minutes on a bike or in a taxi to pretty much anywhere in the West End. More than 15 minutes of fame for the companies smart enough to locate themselves in Paddington.

Paddington is in the midst of more hyper-connected infrastructure and public realm upgrades since Isambard Kingdom Brunel designed and built the station in the 1850’s. The super-fast Elizabeth Line (from 2022) and super-slow canal walks (anytime) are now met with some of the best office floorplates in the West End; large, efficient, natural light on all sides and steps from Brunel’s platforms. Today’s corporate neighbours include Microsoft, Sony Pictures, Vodafone, Mars, Visa, Nissan Design Europe, The Virgin Group, Hellman & Friedman, Astra Zeneca and the Premier League.

Waterside House sits on an acre of canalside space and is the 240,000 sq ft headquarters of M&S plc. The bones of the Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners-designed building allow for an expanded and upgraded retrofit when the time arises.
