Built for wellness: Investors are developing properties to keep tenants healthy — and happy

by Reg Clodfelter

Reaching above your head, you grab the last handhold and pull yourself up, finally solving the problem you have laboured on your last three lunch breaks. In your moment of triumph, you pause to enjoy the 120-metre-high London view through the climbing window you are perched on. Yes, climbing window. The year is 2019, and you are at 22 Bishopsgate.

The 62-storey wonder-building, being developed by AXA Investment Managers – Real Assets and Lipton Rogers, is still under construction today; however, it is set to not only be London’s tallest skyscraper upon completion, but also the first fully-certified WELL building in Britain. From the 24th-floor gym, to the 41st-floor spa, all the way down to London’s largest bike park in the basement, the entire 120,000-square-metre building, affectionately called Twentytwo, is designed with the well-being of its tenants in mind — and to help its occupants solve more problems than the ones built into its climbing window.
