Questo é il risultato di una ricerca condotta dalla societá EY su tutte le transazioni commerciali a Londra in questi cinque anni. Le aree che hanno visto duplicare gli affitti sono in particolare Clerkenwell, Farringdon, Shoreditch e St James’s.
Recent researcher at EY analysed real estate transactions by London businesses from 2010 to 2015, across a range of sectors including retail, tech, media and telecoms (TMT), charities, education/public sector and energy, among others. The areas of London observed spanned from the West End and Midtown to the City of London and Docklands. Russell Gardner, UK & Ireland Head of Real Estate at EY, says: “London’s property market is and has been a special case. Businesses appear willing to pay more for suitable office space, wherever that might be across the city. Clerkenwell, Farringdon, Shoreditch, and St James’ saw commercial property rents double. Average rents increased from £33 per square foot in 2010 to £55 in 2015 with four areas of the capital seeing their commercial property rents double (Clerkenwell, Farringdon, Shoreditch, St James’s).
