Video-sharing social networking service TikTok Information Technologies UK has leased the whole of Kaleidoscope, Helical’s 8,222 sq m (88,500 sq ft) office building located over Farringdon East Crossrail Station in central London.
“We set out to deliver an architecturally striking and characterful building that would suit the fast growing creative and tech companies that are attracted to this highly accessible location,” said Helical property director Matthew Bonning-Snook. “As a platform for billions of creators worldwide, TikTok is a perfect business for both the building and the area’s ambition to be a destination for culture and creativity.”
Kaleidoscope comprises ground and five upper floors and was the first over-station development to complete on the Crossrail Line.
The property utilises the Citigen District Network for its heating and cooling, benefitting from continuing investment into delivering low carbon energy.
Farringdon sits at the heart of London’s “Culture Mile” an area that is being transformed into a diverse arts and cultural hub celebrating the City of London.
JLL and Pilcher London acted for Helical in the deal.
