Standards of a Navy Officer
Residence Two is a Grade II Listed, late-Georgian building that was once occupied by the Navy’s officer classes, which is why it shares the same refined elegance of Royal William Yard’s grander buildings. Its smaller floorplans makes it the perfect home for start-ups and small small businesses looking to work from Royal William Yard.
The whole building is a showcase of contemporary boutique design and every office has stunning views, overlooking the Green or secret gardens nestled away behind the building. This place has a collaborative vibe, packed with a variety of interesting businesses and people.
Share a smoothie or a coffee in the common room or snug, leave a note for after work drinks on the blackboard walls or hold a meeting in the new private meeting space. This building has everything a business needs to grow including; internal and external meeting space, snug and common room, kitchen, secret garden and showers.
This amazing four storey Grade II listed building is situated within the breathtaking Royal William Yard. Rent is all inclusive – covering services and estate charge, heating, electricity and even high speed fibre connection - the only thing you need to worry about is your business rates, telephone and VAT.
Space in Residence Two can be taken on monthly or annual leases up to three years. Our short form lease means you could move your business in the next morning and, with the fibre connection, be ready to do business the very same day.
