Business Thrives in Bermondsey

Providing tenants with excellent access to London city centre, The Duchy of Lancaster has let the last of its business units on the Willows development to Tangram Architects.  Commercial property consultants Frankis Porter and Drivers Jonas Deloitte joined forces for the letting scheme and secured the last tenant whose lease commenced on 2nd October 2012.

Located a short distance south of Tower Bridge and London Bridge in Bermondsey, the recently let unit comprises of a single storey office/studio/workshop unit of some 1,465 sq. ft. The premises were let on a 6 year lease at a rent of £17.50 psf. The property also offers 5 car parking spaces on a secure gated site.

Commenting on the scheme, Michael Frydman, Urban Surveyor of Lands at The Duchy of Lancaster, said: “The location of the Willows is ideal for companies because it’s so close to the hub of the business community. With their experience in commercial lettings, appointing both Frankis Porter and Drivers Jonas Deloitte meant that we could be confident that our space would let quickly.”

Jim Frankis, of Frankis Porter, commented: “In today’s marketplace it is vital that businesses maximise their offering. We aim to provide clients with services that meet all of their property needs and the Willows unit proved ideal for Tangram Architects, due to its great location and office space.”

Susan Wainwright, Director of Tangram Architects, commented: “Having an office space in the city centre helps boost our client appointments. London is at the heart of the architectural community and so this location helps to meets our business needs.

”In recent years we have expanded into other sectors becoming increasingly appointed for care homes, offices, residential, police/custodial and conservation projects and we hope this relocation will enable us to expand our offering into other areas in the future.”

Easily accessible from the A2, the Willows provides a total of some 10,750 in 6 units.  For more information on this development and other sites please visit
