DeVono is the UK's leading occupier-only commercial real estate agency. We have access to all on and off-market property in the City Fringe area and throughout London. We offer serviced, furnished, leasehold, short and long-term office space, as well as individual desks and rooms.
Commercial space in the City fringe offers organisations the best of two worlds. You can access the high-rise buildings and high ambitions of the City of London, whilst benefiting from the local character and amenities offered by the surrounding areas.
When looking for offices in these areas organisations can choose from the media-focused, trendy district of Shoreditch, target the young professionals who live in Clerkenwell, or set up shop in Islington. Each district has its own benefits and rental prices, as well as its own range of office buildings. The choice is considerable.
Since 2003, DeVono has acted as commercial property advisors for a huge range of well-known UK businesses. Our local knowledge and commitment to working exclusively for occupiers, not landlords, means we're perfectly positioned to help you find the right City fringe offices to lease or purchase. As well as helping you source office space, we can negotiate on your behalf and help manage your move.
The City of London fringe area can loosely be defined as the regions to the north and east of the historic financial district. This includes Clerkenwell, Old Street, Shoreditch and most of east London. Even amongst the reliable diversity of the UK’s capital, the areas that make up the London City fringe have one thing in common – they are a stone’s throw away from the City.
Don’t risk commercial stagnation – renting office space in the City fringe puts your business close to the heart of one of the world’s most eminent and successful financial and business centres.
Of course, the City of London is most famous for its financial organisations. But the area is not only suitable for businesses operating within the financial industries. The vibrant and varied atmosphere of London ensures that, whatever your customer base, there will be a London City fringe office that suits your business perfectly.
Clerkenwell, to the north-east of the City is all about loft living and lofty ambitions, attracting fashionable professionals from all industries. It is home to some of the best restaurants and pubs available in London.
Shoreditch is similarly stylish, boasting some of the most modern, quirky examples of floor space and offices in the City fringe.
East London, meanwhile, is undergoing a rapid regeneration programme. With a focus on growth and success, the area provides affordable commercial property options to accommodate businesses of all sizes, and is situated in easy commuting distance between the two financial powerhouses of the City of London and Canary Wharf.
In common with all of central London, the City fringe is well connected in terms of road and rail transport.
Buses, tubes and taxis are the main ways in which Londoners get around. There are no shortage of tube stations and bus routes, which can take you and your employees right to the centre of the City of London, or to any other area of central London.
If you have international ambitions for your company, then relocating to the City of London fringe area puts you into a position of accessibility and esteem, located within easy access to London’s three international airports.

The entire team at DeVono deciphered our ambitions with patience, pragmatism and good humour.
