When 54 St James Street opened its doors in 2011 businesses were keen to check out the new office units available for business incubation, and soon it was buzzing with innovative local enterprises.
One of the first businesses to move in to 54 St James Street was León & Coco, a design business owned and run by Diana Heredia. Today Diana celebrates her 3rd anniversary at 54 St James Street. As she moves into her 4th year of tenancy at the development, we asked Diana how she feels about her office space.
“I truly enjoy working here,” said Diana, “there are no distractions and my space is bright and light which helps me keep focused. Being in a building with other businesses helps me not to feel isolated and though they are in a different field, a quick chat now and then confirms I am not alone and every now and then you learn something new and interesting. The same can be said about The Women’s Organisation who support the businesses at 54 St James Street. It is handy to have them close and with a programme of events that is inspiring which I can join in with as and when I find the time.”
León & Coco was born out of several hobbies and interests of its founder Diana Heredia and the lack of imaginative gifts for the children of friends and family. After becoming a mum with León in 2005 she started making gifts like blankets, clothing items and accessories as presents. Until Coco was born in 2007 her fabric collection and skills had grown and most soft furnishings in León and Coco’s nursery were made by mum. Four years later with Coco’s school start the hobby started to grow into a small business dedicated to making unique products for children.
