The Noho office market is the area bounded by Euston Road to the north, Oxford Street to the south, Tottenham Court Road to the east and Portland Place to the west. The area is a truly mixed-use district with office, retail, residential, healthcare and education all featuring in similar measures.

Driven by strengthening demand and an under-supply of stock, the prime rent in Noho has now reached the highest ever recorded in the area.

Looking ahead, we expect the area’s positive performance to continue, particularly given its enhanced connectivity with the introduction of Crossrail.

Occupier Profile

The occupier base in Noho has historically been associated with London’s garment industry, although more recently the media sector (particularly television and film production), tech and creative industries have sought offices in the area.

Recent big name tenants such as Facebook and Estée Lauder have been attracted to the area for its central location, dynamic street culture and strong connectivity network.
