We are proud to announce the first major office letting in The MediaWorks building with YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP (YNAP) taking 70,000 sq ft of office space as a cutting edge tech hub. YNAP’s new office will accommodate up to 650 members of the global technology team, bringing all its UK technology teams into one location. 

The MediaWorks offices will be ready for YNAP’s technology team to occupy by March 2017. The headquarters will include flexible space to accommodate future growth and best-in-class mobile and IT capabilities, making full use of White City Place’s WiredScore ‘Platinum’ certification for superior connectivity.

Alex Alexander, Chief Information Officer at YNAP, released a statement that said, "As YNAP grows, it is exciting to move into a new home for all of our UK technologists that will inspire and facilitate creativity and innovation, enabling us to build even better retail and content experiences for our customers.”

With well loved shopping sites net-a-porter.com, mrporter.com, theoutnet.com, and yoox.com, YNAP is the world’s leading online luxury fashion retailer. The Group is a global company with Anglo-Italian roots, the result of a game-changing merger that in October 2015 brought together YOOX GROUP and THE NET-A-PORTER GROUP – two companies that have revolutionised the luxury fashion industry.

Rajesh Agrawal, Deputy Mayor of London for Business and Enterprise, said “I am delighted that there will be yet more new tech jobs coming to the capital. This highlights once again that London is open for business, new investment and global talent.”

YNAP has offices and operations in the United States, Europe, Japan, China and Hong Kong and delivers to more than 180 countries around the world and an unrivalled client base of more than 2.5 million high-spending customers and over 27 million monthly unique visitors worldwide.

David Camp, Chief Executive of White City Place’s developer Stanhope, said , “we are delighted to welcome YNAP to White City Place, which is fast becoming the key creative hub in West London and the commercial heart of White City. At White City Place we are networked for creative thought and provide the high speed IT connectivity, tech infrastructure, and social amenity that businesses like YNAP demand.”

Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, Chairman and Founder of Grimshaw – White City Place’s architects – commented that "YNAP will be able to take advantage of the super fast IT network broadband connections, great transport links and exciting new independent restaurants and cafes and public space that White City Place will soon provide.”
