Hearst to move HQ to Leicester Square

James Wildman: "We believe a long term commitment to London’s West End is paramount to retaining and attracting the very best talent."

Hearst will move from its two Soho offices into the brand new development at 30 Panton Street in Summer 2018 to be the main occupier, leasing five floors totalling 70,915 square ft. The move will bring Hearst’s London business under one roof for the first time to create a future-facing, highly collaborative and creative work environment, says the company.

Developed by clients of Old Park Lane Management Limited, designed by Make Architects, and completed in October 2016, LSQ London comprises the entire western side of Leicester Square in the heart of the West End.

The building, which retains its historic façade, will have a bespoke fit out for Hearst, including brand new modernised facilities for employees and first rate technology specifications. It also offers a high standard of environmental sustainability and has panoramic views of London.

James Wildman, President and CEO of Hearst UK, says: “We are extremely proud of Hearst’s new UK headquarters. We believe a long term commitment to London’s West End is paramount to retaining and attracting the very best talent, as well as keeping us in close proximity to our commercial partners.

“LSQ London will provide a contemporary and vibrant space for our staff to enjoy and will help cultivate an even more joined up, creative culture. Its high-specification facilities offer a fabulous platform for growth and digital acceleration, and will truly reflect the modern media company that Hearst is today.”
