Canary Wharf Group launches MadeFor managed office space with Citi as first customer – 21.02.22

  • Launch of MadeFor: fully fitted, furnished and managed office space to meet the demands of flexible workforces
  • Citi is the first customer to use this space, taking 95,000 sq ft at Forty Bank Street
  • Following the successful letting of the MadeFor space at Forty Bank Street, further MadeFor spaces will be available across CWG’s portfolio

Canary Wharf Group (CWG) is launching MadeFor: premium fully fitted and managed office space, with sustainable design and delivery at its core.

Designed and built by CWG’s in-house team, MadeFor provides beautifully designed, high quality, fitted, furnished and dressed workspace that’s ready for immediate occupation or which can alternatively be delivered “to order”.  MadeFor also offers businesses a fully managed solution, including cleaning, Wi-Fi and IT services, full maintenance and ‘handyman’ services, and refreshments.

MadeFor has been launched to meet the changing needs and exacting requirements of our wide range of customers – from high growth businesses that are looking for their own private workspace to larger organisations seeking flexible space for expansion, projects or medium-term use. 

MadeFor provides a seamless and complete customer focused experience and saves our clients the time, hassle and risks involved in designing, delivering, and managing a workspace. Each MadeFor space will be tailored for the customers’ needs and with an individual style, delivered with sustainability at the heart of every decision, while always offering a modern and inspiring place to work.   

Citi is MadeFor’s first customer and has taken 95,000 sq. ft at Forty Bank Street while Citi Tower, its UK and EMEA headquarters, at 25 Canada Square, is being refurbished. This is part of its long-term re-commitment to Canary Wharf.

Following the success of Forty Bank Street, MadeFor will be available across CWG’s portfolio including One Canada Square, Forty Bank Street, 20 Water Street and The Columbus Building. 

Shobi Khan, CEO, Canary Wharf Group said: “We now offer our customers any type of solution to meet their needs – from taking a few desks in our L39 community to managed services via the MadeFor platform to a bespoke sustainable build to suit. CWG can deliver a sustainable solution to meet the exact needs of the customer – and we can do it with benefit of decades of in-house experience.” 

“We are pleased to welcome Citi to Forty Bank Street and our new MadeFor space as they transform the Citi Tower. Citi has an exciting vision for their home at Canary Wharf turning it into an environmentally sustainable, innovative, and energising place to work. We are delighted to partner with them.”

James Bardrick, Citi Country Officer for the UK, said: “Following our recent announcement about transforming Citi Tower to create a flexible, innovative, carbon-efficient, world-class workplace that’s fit for the future, we will be moving a number of our teams to CWG’s Forty Bank Street building.”

“This high quality, sustainable, serviced workspace, just across the street from our current building, will provide our colleagues with a fantastic base to collaborate and work together.”
