The Office Market

The Knightsbridge office market is one of the smallest across the West End. As such it has maintained a higher rental level than other neighbouring locations.

Akin to the Mayfair market, high net-worth residents and visitors attracts financial and investment businesses to be located here. Over the years the occupier community has diversified but lack of stock has meant that choice remains restrictive.
