BE buys Headspace with expansion in mind

Jonny Rosenblatt, who founded Headspace five years ago, will be leaving the business. BE has 16 centres, the majority in London, plus sites in Reading, Bristol, Milton Keynes and Basingstoke. Headspace caters to tech, media and creative occupiers and currently operates three co-working spaces in Marylebone, Farringdon and Manchester.The Headspace brand will be retained and will operate alongside its recently-launched BESpoke division, which is aimed at corporate occupiers looking for flexible space.David Saul, managing director and co-founder of BE, said: “We believe that with our financial resource and well-established management team we can really develop the Headspace brand and fully realise its potential to become a major force in the co-working and flexible workspace sector. “Importantly I believe that it will enable BE to grow dramatically over the next three to five years as our highly focused divisions take full advantage of the rapidly growing interest in the flexible space and serviced office market across all sectors.”
