Prior to the building’s completion, Hult International Business School has taken the whole of the 23,500 sq ft Conquest House, the only newly-refurbished or new building that will come available in WC1 for the next year. The School with five campuses across the World, ranked in the Financial Times top 100 business schools and voted ‘best for postgraduation salary increases’ by The Economist, has taken the John Street building on a 15 year lease from GMS Estates, who were advised by Farebrother.
Conquest House, like Lynton House on Tavistock Square before it, has had little competition in the market, yet it presses all the buttons – innovative design, high-quality workmanship, good floorplates and strong green credentials, even terraces and a garden. The building has already been shortlisted for this year’s retrofit Oscars, the 3R Awards.’
Darcy Soar advised Hult. The building was designed by Emrys Architects.
