Attic Self Storage of the UK Opens the Country’s First Facility With 'Work Pods'

Attic Self Storage, which operates three facilities in London, is building a multi-story property in Harrow, England, that’ll include “work pods” aimed at business owners. The service will be a first of its kind in the United Kingdom, according to a press release.

Attic is incorporating the new offering in response to people looking for alternative ways to run their business during the coronavirus pandemic, the release stated. The work pods will provide access to WiFi, computer plug-ins, a printer and coffee. Each unit is secured with a keyless electronic lock customers can control via mobile app. Tenants can receive a notification every time their unit is opened and delegate access to others as needed.

The facility will contain about 1,000 storage units. It’ll also offer 24-hour access and contactless rentals.

“Attic is excited to launch a U.K. first, to provide a safe and secure environment for business leaders looking for convenient ways to work and store stock,” said Frederic de Ryckman de Betz, CEO and founder. “The facility offers a contemporary space that will become a hub for creativity, business growth and entrepreneurialism. We are already taking bookings with the facility opening this March.”

Founded in 2006, Attic operates three facilities in Bow, King’s Cross and Marylebone. Additional services include conference rooms, moving and packing supplies, and mailbox rentals.
