Reading's Thames Tower is set to welcome two more occupiers in 2018, with the arrival of electronics giant Ericsson and regeneration consultancy Nexus Planning.
Nexus is relocating from its current premises in Weybridge from this summer, while
Ericsson is taking 3,493sq m of office space for its new headquarters, occupying the eighth, ninth and 14th floors of the 14-storey tower following its move from Guildford Business Park in Surrey in late 2018.
The new lettings mark a busy month for the Landid and Brockton Capital building, following three occupancies by broadband network provider MBNL, architecture consultant Broadway Malyan and charity Make-A-Wish Foundation. It is now 75% occupied.
Marielle Lindgren, head of Ericsson UK & Ireland, said: "Establishing our new headquarters in Reading marks the start of another chapter of innovation and collaboration in Ericsson UK.
"We wanted our new office environment to address a number of things: to meet the needs of our evolving business requirements; to provide a collaborative, balanced and flexible work space; and to give easy access to a variety of amenities and transport options. Thames Tower offers all of this and more."
Adam Ross, executive director for Nexus Planning’s Thames Valley office, commented: "Relocating our Thames Valley office to a quality base in central Reading is a core objective for the business.
"With the area evolving so quickly, it is an exciting time both for Nexus Planning and our Thames Valley office specifically. We look forward to becoming even more engaged with the 'DNA' of Reading and the Thames Valley as a whole, whilst we continue to act for our wide range of excellent clients across southern England."
