Two major leaseholders will soon take up residence in Reading’s 15-storey Thames Tower, which is attracting some of the biggest names in business and technology, including HSBC and business advisor BDO.
Computer software provider Objective Corporation will move its UK headquarters from Maidenhead into 650sq m office space on the 10th floor, while national law firm Clarkslegal has taken a lease for 794sq m on the fifth floor.
Monica Atwal, managing partner of Clarkslegal said: “This move represents the next chapter of Clarkslegal’s long legacy.
"The move is an investment in our own future and marks our confidence also in the future economic success of Reading as our historic base."
Thames Tower is a joint venture between developer Landid and investor Brockton, which also owns The Charter Building in Uxbridge and The Porter Building in Slough.
James Silver, Landid's development director, said: "It's really exciting to welcome a business with the pedigree of Clarkslegal into Thames Tower to join our growing community of forward-thinking businesses in the building.
"Just a stone’s throw from Reading station, Thames Tower's connectivity is a huge draw, as is the town centre location, which gives employees access to all that Reading has to offer."
