Medidata Solutions has agreed to lease 23,000 sq ft of W6 office space at PRUPIM’s Metro Building in Hammersmith Broadway.
The new tenant provides IT solutions to the medical sector. Medidata has become a global supplier of cloud-based data technology to clinicians and research scientists.
The firm’s Europe, Middle East, Africa headquarters are currently based in an 8,700 sq ft of Uxbridge office rental in UB8. Medidata are expanding their operation and so have taken 23,000 sq ft of space spread across two floor levels. As part of a 10 year lease the IT firm will begin to occupy the 7th and 8th floors from this February.
Hammersmith benefits from superb road and rail connections as well as convenient links to Heathrow Airport. Hammersmith Broadway is served by two underground stations and a major bus interchange, which are all just moments walk from the Metro Building.
PRUPIM, asset manager Giles Difford commented on the deal saying: “Office transactions last year in Hammersmith surpassed the 200,000 sq ft mark demonstrating continued strong demand for space in the West London area. As the vacancy rate drops below 5% and pipeline development remains restricted, competition amongst occupiers for well-located and high quality space such as The Metro Building will increase.”
