Vistaprint takes floor at Two Pancras Square, King’s Cross
Another international business has announced it will be leasing office space at King’s Cross, as the first commercial buildings complete. Vistaprint, a leading online provider of professional marketing products and services to micro businesses and the home, is to take the fourth floor (c.15,596 sq ft) of Two Pancras Square, designed by Allies + Morrison. Other tenants in the building include publishing company, PRS for Music, and SAV Credit.
Vistaprint is Europe’s largest customised printing business. It is opening a UK office for the first time in order to build market insight and support growth in what is its largest EU market and its second largest revenue generating country. The King’s Cross office will be home to a team of marketing and analytics specialists who will help service its UK-based micro business and consumer clients.
Helen Causer, Argent (King’s Cross) Ltd., the asset manager at King’s Cross, commented:
“King’s Cross is now an established business hub, attracting companies who want to benefit from the agglomeration of like-minded businesses. Two Pancras Square offers Vistaprint a stunning Grade A space, in a striking building a few minutes’ walk from Europe’s best-connected stations, and with a roof terrace for occupiers’ use, with panoramic views of central London.”
Emily Shirley, Marketing Director at Vistaprint and responsible for the ownership of country strategies in EU markets, comments: “We are very excited to be opening a fantastic new location in the UK, which is our largest EU market. Vistaprint has already achieved great success here, but we believe that having a bricks and mortar presence will truly allow us to take our value proposition to a new level, by better understanding the needs of both existing and potential new customers.”
Joining the UK Country Team at Vistaprint London will be further teams from a mix of functions including Analytics, Marketing Strategy and HR. The full, initial staff intake is expected to be in place in early July, comprising a mixture of new hires and transfers from other Vistaprint offices. A smaller, temporary office located opposite Regent’s Park became operational in early March to help lay the ground work for the main site. The new office is expected to open in Autumn 2014; Two Pancras Square will complete in June.
