The Prestige of an office in St James

Offices in the area benefit from fantastic transport links, served by Piccadilly Circus, Green Park and Charing Cross Underground stations (Piccadilly, Northern, Bakerloo and Jubilee lines). Westminster and Victoria stations are just a short walk away and numerous bus routes provide additional overland access.

Today, this part of London is home to a number of major international organisations, including oil giant BP, making it one of the most popular and expensive places to base a company. Although the district has some of the highest commercial rents in the world, costing up to five times the price of similar spaces in New York and Paris, this is also reflected in the demographic of visitors to the area, with more money to be found (and made) here than in any other part of the city.

Notable locations include the central Square, now mostly given over to business use; Jermyn Street, famous for its bespoke gentlemen’s attire shops; Haymarket, a notable theatre district; King Street, whereon Christie’s auction house is situated; and Pall Mall, home to many illustrious and élite clubs. In addition, among the smaller side streets, a veritable plethora of specialist wine merchants, cigar retailers and antique dealers are to be found.

With such a rich culture and history of exclusivity, it’s no surprise that businesses are keen to relocate to this fashionable and well-regarded district of London. If you think that office space in St James’s will let your company achieve its full potential, get in touch today to discuss suitable accommodation.
