Forum members and their guests joined Robert Wolstenholme, Founder of Trilogy Real Estate to discover the vision behind Republic, the next-gen office campus redefining the workplace in East London. The project is a dramatic reimagining of a tired post-modern office campus, the newly launched Import Building is a 270,000 sq ft refurbishment on a 600,000 sq ft campus delivering affordable rents and a lifestyle offer aimed at creative businesses priced-out of Central London and Shoreditch. Reimagined and refurbished by architect Studio RHE, the project reflects Trilogy’s approach to creative places and features collaborations with artist Scott King, graphic designer Tom Hingston, retailer MagCulture and workspace operator Trampery. The building launched with a collaboration with Courier, the start-up culture magazine, whose first ever festival took place at the campus in September and is accompanied by Clipper, a magazine which celebrates culture in the area.
On-site lifestyle benefits include a dedicated Community Management and Wellness team who provide personal training, classes, events and advisory services to tenants; a health and fitness centre operated by PureGym; a Gentlemen Baristas coffee shop.
