Many of our occupiers love The Blade’s location in Reading, and enjoy the opportunity to stretch their legs in our nearby green spaces.

Choosing to be based at The Blade came naturally to the team from Altitude Angel. The most iconic building in Reading, with its spire and panoramic views across 40 miles, was the perfect location for a company whose focus is the sky.
Where we work, and the environment around us, has a huge impact on our productivity and wellbeing. Yet there’s no doubt about it, recruiting in most sectors is tough right now.
