Knight Frank Central London Commercial Agents
The landscape of Central London – and the global real estate market – is continuously changing. With currencies fluctuating and the stock market often erratic, commercial property investment provides security as a tangible asset.
As global capital flows change and new investors emerge, Knight Frank’s Central London Commercial teams strive to provide occupiers and investors alike with guidance on how to best evolve and achieve maximum value in this shifting marketplace.
Our extensive team includes agency, occupiers, capital markets, development consultancy and lease advisory – perfectly positioning us to assist with every stage of your commercial property requirements, no matter its size or sector.
As London continues to expand and office space becomes increasingly mixed-use, a new generation of office buildings is emerging. With advice underpinned by a dedicated market-leading research team, our Central London Agency team works with clients to provide insight into changing market dynamics and key drivers for the occupiers operating within.
We have been heavily involved in the evolution of numerous buildings in new districts of the capital, including Here East in Stratford, Battersea Power Station in Nine Elms, and White City in West London as well as the more traditional core markets.
Work space represents a major overhead for many businesses – so it’s important to secure the best possible deal. We advise our clients on how to best meet their requirements in line with their brand and ambitions; whether they’re a small start-up looking for a short-term co-working space, or a global corporate looking for permanent new headquarters.
Our global network uses the latest market insight to advise clients on cross-border acquisitions and the disposal of international property across the office, residential, retail, industrial, leisure and hotel sectors, as well as the specialist areas of student property and healthcare.
Working with institutional, private equity, family offices, sovereign wealth and real estate companies, the team’s portfolio includes some of the world’s highest profile property transactions.
Our Development Team works alongside land owners, developers and owner occupiers to achieve maximum value while mitigating risk on commercial development and refurbishment projects, at every stage of the development lifecycle.
The Development Team are constantly advising on numerous key development and refurbishment projects in the capital with particular expertise in harnessing our sector specialists for mixed use advisory projects. They are experienced negotiators both in terms of sales and acquisitions as well as specialists in complicated legal restructurings to enable development to happen.
Our lease advisory surveyors specialise in advising owners and occupiers of offices in Central London facing lease events like rent reviews, break options, surrenders, lease re-gears and lease renewals.
Our advisors formulate cogent strategies for their clients to maximise the opportunity presented by lease events and are able to do this by immersing themselves in their market teams, deploying their extensive technical experience and by adopting an enterprising and innovative approach to problem solving.
