Neopost UK, the business communications specialist, has signed a lease for 25,000 sq ft at Here East, London’s technology focused campus.

Here East was developed by iCITY, a company owned by clients of Delancey. It is a 1.2m sq ft campus for businesses, educators, entrepreneurs and artists to innovate, collaborate and create the products of the future.

Neopost will be moving 280 people into the third floor of the Press Centre at Here East, in the company’s first headquarters move for 40 years. Here East will now be 77% let. The leasing strategy is led by Cushman & Wakefield and Knight Frank.

Mike Stone, managing director of Neopost UK, said: “These are exciting times for Neopost as we transform our business to meet the changing needs of customers. The move to Here East and its innovative and exciting community mirrors our own vision and values. Our people have always said that Neopost is a great company to work for and I am sure that Here East will be a great place to work. Neopost and Here East are a perfect fit.”

Gavin Poole, CEO of Here East, said: “Neopost is exactly the sort of business for which Here East was created. One of the major players of business communications, it is now looking to technology and software to transform its own model and remain at the cutting edge of their sector. Here East can help accelerate that growth through opportunities to collaborate in a community of world-class digital talent, business leaders and creatives using technology in a diverse range of disciplines.”

Paul Goswell, Managing Director of Delancey, said: “The high demand for space at Here East demonstrates the appetite for businesses of all sizes and industries to join a campus environment that promotes collaboration and innovation.

“Neopost is the perfect example of a world leading business that is looking to technology to maintain its cutting edge and will be in good company alongside the likes of Hobs Studio, Ford, Sports Interactive, as well as the many start-ups at Plexal. The success of Here East is a vote of confidence for the future of London as the home of innovation.”
