London Area GuideClerkenwell Office Space to Rent

Area Overview

The City West market covers the western area of the City adjacent to Midtown, and encompasses Clerkenwell, Farringdon, and St Paul’s as the main districts. The former areas are popular for young professionals to live in.

The area has gone through significant redevelopment in recent years, partly due to the boost that access to the new Crossrail line will bring. Further redevelopment is expected with a new generation of buildings and amenities.

The Office Market

Leasing activity within the City West office market has recently been driven by transactions in and around Farringdon and redevelopment surrounding St Bartholomew's Hospital. New office stock has rallied rents higher for this part of London, with further regeneration in the pipeline to maintain current levels.
