Co-working space overlooking Walthamstow Wetlands to open in autumn

The 15,000 square foot co-working space will initially open for invite-only events in October before a grand opening later this autumn


A new co-working space featuring a terrace overlooking the Walthamstow Wetlands is set to ‘soft launch’ in October before opening later this autumn.

FOUNDRY, which also has other co-working spaces in Eastbourne and Poole, will be based at Blackhorse Mill on Green Ferry Way, a stone’s-throw from Blackhorse Road underground station.

The new co-working spot will additionally host four currently yet-to-be-filled retail spaces for local health and beauty businesses on its ground floor.

Membership to the space will start from £125 per month. Membership will come with access to a boutique lounge featuring hot desking spaces, private sound-proof booths and meeting rooms. A higher tier ‘Dedicated Desk’ membership will provide workers access to a designated desk, and a limited number of private offices.

FOUNDRY says that all memberships encourage members to host events, network and invite guests. While closed to the general public, paying members will be encouraged to invite friends to join them at the drinks bar terrace that overlooks the Walthamstow Wetlands.

FOUNDRY co-founder Adam Walker is also a founder of food court CRATE Walthamstow. FOUNDRY’s other Co Founders are Legal & General, who own Blackhorse Mills, their flagship build to rent location in the UK. 

Adam said: “I am delighted to be back in Walthamstow, working with a great team and immersing myself into the local business community. FOUNDRY Walthamstow will be the best place to work and meet friends for a cocktail and nibbles with stunning views. Keep your eyes peeled for the launch date, coming soon.”
