Meanwhile Space has partnered with Network Rail since 2014 to bring multiple arches, which are due for future redevelopment into meanwhile use. The arches have formed a series of follow-on spaces for the wider Meanwhile Space network of 11,000 people seeking temporary space to develop ideas.
Fourteen arches have already been taken in the first and second phases on an affordable rental (50% market rate) to startup creative enterprises, with some early tenants transitioning to commercial rate tenants of Network Rail.
A further 5 arches are due on board in 2018.
