MYO workspace Q&A
How long have you been around?
Myo, our flexible office brand, opened for business in the heart of London’s Victoria in 2019. Then, we launched Myo Liverpool Street in May 2021.
Landsec has a long heritage in developing and managing offices across the capital. That means that we’re best placed to serve businesses of any size, no matter where they are in their journey. We offer customers three products and work in partnership with them to find the best one to meet their needs. Customers can take full control and operate on their own terms with Blank Canvas, utilise our design and management expertise with Customised or choose a flexible, serviced private office space at Myo.
We know that flexibility is key for growing businesses, no matter which stage of growth a business is at, and that’s why we created Myo, giving our customers the reassurance of a big company with the flexibility of a start-up.
What are some of the perks and benefits, and what makes Myo different?
Our customers are at the centre of everything we do, meaning that our spaces and services reflect real business needs with personalised solutions.
Our members are attracted to Myo as it provides truly flexible, customised private offices, combined with exceptional service levels. We focus on a specific market (10 – 100 desks with 1-5 year leases) to ensure that we can deliver a premium experience to those that value it. A Myo office is set within beautifully designed communal space, with outstanding facilities and a focus on wellbeing - putting the business and their employees at the front and centre. We work with customers to design their space and plan the right layout, with a choice of furniture, executive offices, meeting rooms and booths.
Being part of Landsec means that even when our customers outgrow Myo, we can help them step up to the next level to take advantage of Landsec's extensive portfolio of workspace solutions.
There are a number of excellent member benefits, such as a programme of events and classes, designed to evolve and flex around our customer’s interests. Social events, surprise treats, and wellness classes are provided to enrich their day-to-day experience, all designed to contribute to the wellbeing and engagement of our customers. Our approach also aims to engage the local communities and suppliers, driven by our dedication to sustainable business practices.
We’ve also seen sustained demand for flexible, healthy spaces, which is why we designed Myo with customer wellbeing in mind. In July 2022, Myo Liverpool Street was recognised as one of the 10 healthiest spaces nationwide, after being awarded a WELL Platinum Certification for its flexible office space, by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI).
Myo 123 Victoria Street offers an inspiring environment just moments from Victoria Station. Our offices are located on the second and third floors of this architecturally striking building. With the rise in hybrid working, we understand that an office’s location and facilities are more important than ever. With Myo 123 Victoria Street being in the heart of Victoria, it is at the centre of a major transport hub with three underground lines, National Rail and the Gatwick Express providing excellent connections across London and to the South and West of England. Great offices also need to be connected to world class amenities that offer opportunities for wellbeing, socialising and downtime. Myo 123 Victoria Street sits in the centre of a bustling retail and leisure hub, featuring many well-known brands and destinations, such as Browns, Zara and the Apollo Victoria Theatre.
Myo Liverpool Street is the second location in the Myo collection, just a minute from Liverpool Street station, offering excellent connections across London and beyond. Our private spaces are set within high-end surroundings with stunning City views from the sixth to the ninth floors of the Dashwood building. Like 123 Victoria Street, our second Myo space is also in a prime destination, with its surroundings boasting an array of restaurants and stores, such as Gaucho and AllSaints.
We’ll be launching more locations in 2023, so watch this space.
Reason for starting?
We’ve a long history of developing and managing prime, quality offices, which gives us a unique insight into what businesses need to thrive. We’ve listened to our customers and know that for many, flexibility is key. From businesses who are just starting out, to those who are growing and need additional space, we wanted to design something that could support a variety of businesses.
We continue to draw upon our understanding of environmental design and our focus on the future of the workplace to create inspirational, yet practical solutions that meet genuine business needs.
Plans for the future?
We are actively adapting our approach to create the best value for our customers and are keen to grow Myo in the process, by opening more locations and forging deeper relationships with our customers.
