City of London relocation
Advised by Levy Real Estate, corporate training company, RogenSi, relocated in the City of London to 6,100 sq ft of offices at The Salisbury building in Moorgate.
Patrick Ryan comments: ‘This was the third office relocation that we have negotiated on behalf of RogenSi in the past five years as it has either enhanced or – as in this instance – expanded its offices.
“We also advised the company on the exit strategy from the previous building including a lease re-gear and dilapidations settlement.”
Expansion in Mayfair
Advised by Levy’s Office team, luxury retailer Swarovski took additional office space at its Mayfair offices in Sackville Street.
Levy agreed a re-gear of the company’s existing leases at 21 Sackville Street with landlord, The Crown Estate to enable the expansion. Swarovski now occupies three floors in the building totalling more than 11,000 sq ft.
Patrick Ryan of Levy Real Estate comments “There were a number of interesting options throughout Mayfair that we considered. However, the landlord’s commitment to retain the business in the building coupled with the ability to secure additional space in ultimately enabled Swarovski to expand with limited disruption to their business”.
Requirement for flexibility
Ferrexpo Head of UK Operations, Ira Flyunt: “We instructed Levy Real Estate to find our new HQ offices with a very specific brief that allowed us to retain maximum flexibility moving forward. James and Patrick worked with us through the entire process and ensured we found space at a new development that offered the right profile for our business and the flexibility we required”.
Staying in St James’s
Adams and Remers Partner, Joe Covill: “We instructed Levy Real Estate on the back of their excellent track record acting for occupiers across Central London. As established St James’s tenants, we were guided through the process so that our cost expectations could be managed. This was done through careful space planning exercises and focusing on options that allowed us to achieve our rental aspirations and crucially, remain in St James’s”.
New Mayfair office
Tyndaris Partner and CFO, Nishit Chotai commented: “Levy worked tirelessly in seeking out offices that met our specific requirements and were highly responsive throughout.” Levy have been re-engaged to assist their further staff expansion.
St James’s exhibition space
David Gill Artistic Director, Francis Sultana reports: “Levy understood our requirement and kept pressing to secure these offices when the landlord was still unsure as to their strategy. At all stages, they have been pro-active and kept us informed as to all progress.”
Architect HQ and studios
HASSELL London Practice leader, Julian Gitsham commented: “I retained Patrick Ryan to find studios at my previous architectural practice and he identified a former garage and disused ground floor to create truly wonderful space. When I moved to Hassell I had no hesitation in retaining Levy to identify our new studios and we are very excited about the two floors we are moving into in Shoreditch.”
City expansion and upgrade
Lubbock Fine Managing Partner, Mark Turner comments: “The clear and structured approach that Levy adopted at all stages of the search, shortlisting stage through to lease completion and subsequent fit out completion was well executed and professional, and we are all delighted with the new offices.”
Letting unlocks building value
Josie Lloyd, the General Optical Council’s Director of Resources reports: “The expertise of Levy’s residential and office teams created a seamless process and the advice we received throughout the building sale and relocation process was exceptional.”
