The Zoopla Property Group (ZPG), the digital media business that owns and operates some of the UK's most widely recognised and trusted online brands including Zoopla, uSwitch and PrimeLocation has agreed a lease for its new head offices at 1 Courage Yard, Shad Thames SE1, adjacent to Tower Bridge.
The new ZPG headquarters will comprise a single 44,000 sq. ft. self-contained building which was the former Cooperage House to the Courage Yard Brewery and is undergoing a complete renovation, due to be completed by the summer, to highlight much of the building’s industrial past. ZPG currently occupies 3 separate buildings in SE1 as a result of its continued growth and recent acquisitions and the office move will bring all staff together in one location later this year.
Since its launch 8 years ago, ZPG has grown from a handful of employees in a single room office into a FTSE 250 business on the London Stock Exchange with over 450 employees. ZPG’s websites now attract over 50 million visitors per month, generating over 4 million enquires per month for its business partners as it continues its mission to be the most useful resource for consumers when finding, moving or managing their home and the most effective lead generation platform for related professionals.
Alex Chesterman, Founder & CEO of ZPG said, “We have outgrown our existing offices despite having only moved 2 years ago as a result of our continued growth and the acquisition of uSwitch last year. I am delighted that we have found a great new space in a vibrant part of London, close to our existing offices and with great transport links which will allow us to bring all our teams together under one roof later in the year. We have a fantastic and dedicated team and look forward to creating an amazing new home for them.”
ZPG was advised by DeVono and Gordons Partnership LLP. Hall Kemp & Jones Lang Lasalle advised the landlord.
