Three newcomers for Thames Tower

Reading's Thames Tower will see three more occupiers move to the office building, following the signing of MBNL, architect Broadway Malyan and charity Make-A-Wish Foundation by joint venture (JV) partners Landid and Brockton.
The 14-storey development is located on the town’s pedestrianised piazza, directly opposite the newly rebuilt £800 million Elizabeth Line-connected Reading station.
MBNL, a broadband network JV between mobile operator EE and Three, will move its offices from Amersham into Reading after taking the sixth floor, a total of 1,300sq m in Thames Tower.
International architecture, urbanism and design consultant, Broadway Malyan, is relocating from Theale into the tower with a 441sq m letting on the fifth floor – adjacent to national law firm Clarkslegal, which arrived in late 2017.
The third letting comes from children’s charity Make-A-Wish Foundation, which is moving from Camberley to take 386sq m on the seventh floor.
The charity, which arranges experiences for children with life-threatening medical conditions, will move in next to HSBC – the financial services giant signed for 883sq m in early 2017.
James Silver, Landid development director, said: "It's really exciting to welcome MBNL, Broadway Malyan and Make-A-Wish into Thames Tower – and as all three tenants are new entrants to Reading the deals are a great boost to the town centre, which is really going from strength to strength.
"Thames Tower is a workplace like no other in Reading and these deals further underline the building’s appeal to the next generation of businesses in the Thames Valley and beyond."
The 18,116sq m building benefits from superfast internet and received a WiredScore rating of Gold, making it the first office building in Reading to achieve a certification through the global connectivity rating scheme.
