New members of the ‘Harley St club’

Doctors in the Harley Street area have some new neighbours with the arrival of three more signings to The Howard de Walden Estate portfolio.

Cognacity, Orri and All Points North (APN) have all taken space in the Harley Street Medical Area (HSMA) as the landlords report occupier demand for prime healthcare space remains competitive.

Cognacity, a global expert in mental health and performance, is moving to larger premises in response to increased demand. 

It looks after individuals with a wide range of mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, stress, alcohol/drug-related problems and relationship issues, as well as delivering corporate mental health and performance programmes and executive coaching across a range of business and elite sport sectors. 

The new clinic will be located at 22 Welbeck Street following ten years already spent on Harley Street. The new spaces configuration allows for 50% more clinical consulting rooms.

Dr Phil Hopley, its consultant psychiatrist and managing director, said: ‘We are delighted to have acquired new premises in the Harley Street Medical Area after ten years at 54 Harley Street. 

‘Both our clients and the Cognacity team love the Mary­lebone area and are looking forward to remaining part of such an active community, developing opportunities to collaborate and network with our neighbours and fellow HSMA members.’


The Orri Clinic

Orri, recently signed for 80-81 Wimpole Street, is a specialist treatment service for eating disorders, rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission. 

It offers recovery-based, face-to-face treatment programmes – both in person and online – following a stepped approach, so that treatment evolves with each individual as they progress in recovery. 

Orri is taking a six-storey building, refurbished to offer purpose-built, trauma-informed therapy spaces for both individual and group work and expects to open next month.

Chief executive and founder Kerrie Jones said: ‘Orri was founded to offer a new choice of outstanding and innovative treatment for eating disorder recovery. It is for this reason that we were drawn to the Harley Street Medical Area and Howard de Walden for their long-standing community of pioneering healthcare professionals who hold one another accountable to providing expert care.’

All Points North (APN)

APN signed for space at 12 Upper Wimpole Street and opened last month.

A whole-person health company, it offers innovative treatment for the mind, body and soul across the full continuum of care. Its approach includes integrated, custom care plans and emerging, evidence-based treatments for on-site and outpatient services. 

Since opening a flagship residence in Edward, Colorado, US, APN has expanded to include additional locations as well as a state-of-the art APN Connection app to support a lasting commitment to destigmatising mental healthcare and producing long-term results.

Noah Nordheimer, founder and chief executive of APN, said: ‘When we first opened APN in the US, a large majority of our clients were flying in from the UK and surrounding countries throughout Europe and the Middle East – which demonstrates a need for more accessible mental health resources in that region of the world. 

‘Harley Street is a hub for the UK’s behavioural health sector and we are pleased to call London our new home to build the bridge between APN, Europe and the Middle East and start helping a massively underserved market.’

Julian Best

Howard de Walden’s executive property director Julian Best added: ‘Demand for space across our healthcare portfolio remains strong and we currently have only two small suites available with some very exciting new healthcare projects underway and in the pipeline. 

‘We remain focused on continuing to meet evolving occupier demand and work to ensure our buildings meet the high-quality standards that the Harley Street Medical Area is renowned for. 

‘These latest signings reflect our continued strategic focus on medical and healthcare and, in particular, a response to the greater awareness of mental health to provide access to first-class specialist operators – sadly, a key issue that needs a concerted effort, as up to one-in-four adults are affected by a mental health issue.’
