“The vision for OGS Works has been crafted around innovation industry, creative invention and above all, a thirst for ideas. We are creating a real eco-system and our space has already become a genuine hub,” explained Michael Ingall, CEO of Allied London.

“The passion here is outrageous and infectious and we can feel that this is going to get huge. It is a third generation space and OGS Works is now going to be the bedrock for a massive expansion of enterprise space at St. John’s.”

The office space is aimed at businesses working in media, tech, fashion, music and retail, so as to create a community of likeminded creatives.

“We have so many cool brands and people based within OGS Works, from freelancers to start-ups and there is already a real buzz and excitement about the space we’ve created,” added Tanya Grady, community manager of OGS Works.

“It is more than just a location for people to work, it’s a place where people can create, socialise and network with like-minded individuals. We look forward to welcoming more brands to our community and watching them prosper here”.

OGS Works will sit alongside Hello Work, a social enterprise brand funded by Allied London.

Enterprise City at St John’s is due to open in March next year, with the first phase centred around the Bonded Warehouse.
