245 Hammersmith and 70 St. Mary Axe are Hana’s latest London locations.


The furniture has been arranged, the teas stocked, and the AV systems fully connected. Now, we’re thrilled to officially announce the openings of our two new London locations, Hana at 70 St. Mary Axe in the Square Mile and Hana at 245 Hammersmith in Hammersmith, London.

 

On opposite sides of London, each location features Hana’s unique mix of private suites, on-demand meeting rooms and coworking spaces — with a unique local design in each space. These new workspaces mark Hana’s second and third locations in London respectively after the opening of Hana at St. Martin’s Court in 2019.

 

Let’s explore what makes each building unique — and why we’re delighted to open in these locations.

A Sneak Peek Inside Hana at 70 St. Mary Axe

Between its unbeatable location, superb Class-A development and enviable environmental credentials, 70 St. Mary Axe was an obvious London destination for Hana. (More on that below.)

 

“We were immediately drawn to the dynamism of 70 St. Mary Axe,” says Paul Nellist, Hana’s EMEA Managing Director. “It presents an eye-catching addition to the Square Mile’s skyline and a prime place to grow Hana’s flexible workspace solution in London.”

 

What’s Unique about 70 St. Mary Axe 

 

Originally conceived as a new icon for London, 70 St. Mary Axe boasts a distinctive and instantly recognizable curved shape.

 

Inside the lobby, you’ll find an impressive spiral staircase, which takes you directly to Hana. In total, Hana occupies almost 50,000 square feet of space across the second, third and fourth floors of 70 St. Mary Axe.

Sustainability & Wellness at 70 St. Mary Axe

 

For us, one of the biggest draws of 70 St. Mary Axe is its focus on sustainability and wellness. The building itself boasts BREEAM Excellent, EPC Rating A and Wiredscore Platinum credentials.

 

70 St. Mary Axe also offers a number of fantastic wellness benefits for Hana members that include:

 

        • 328 cycling spaces on-site

Leadenhall Market is a great destination for food, drinks and boutique shopping. SUSHISAMBA is also just around the corner, and we love the dining options at City Social, The Ned, and the Kitchens at Spitalfields for a quick lunch.

 

Nearby transit options include:

 

        • Liverpool Street, Aldgate, Monument, Moorgate Tube Stations
        • Moorgate and Cannon St train stations

A look into Hana at 245 Hammersmith

In greater London, Hammersmith stands out for the number of businesses that call it home. From Virgin Media to Disney and L’Oreal, Hammersmith is full of big names and big players.

 

So, we jumped when we discovered plans for 245 Hammersmith, a new building with a distinctive red exterior, its own Urban Park and 242,000 square feet of space.

 

The result is Hana at 245 Hammersmith, a spacious mixed-use development of private offices, meeting space and coworking across the first and second floors of a truly unique building in West London.

 

What’s Unique about 245 Hammersmith

 

Developed in 2019, 245 Hammersmith cuts a distinctive figure with an eye-catching red exterior and its own urban park big enough for 150 city buses.

From the lobby, you can either take the lift or direct stairs up to Hana’s private offices, on-demand meeting rooms and sophisticated shared workspaces.

 

Across these workspaces, you’ll find little things — such as meeting rooms named after famous people from Hammersmith — and big things including an in-unit hospitality team and amenity hub designed to make your workdays simpler and more productive.
