Fleet Street is well-known as the historic home of the British newspaper industry. However, it is now home to many organisations in a variety of industries including law firms wishing to be situated close to the Inns of Court, as well as a number of publishing companies.
Fleet Street, located in the City of London, is rich with history, intrigue and legends. Until the 1980s, the street was home to the British newspaper industry, and is also famously featured on the British Monopoly board. Nowadays the street is still known for its journalistic associations, and many publishing or news-related businesses still use Fleet Street office buildings. In common with the rest of the City of London, several banks and law firms also choose office space in Fleet Street as their business headquarters.
In the collective memory of the British public, the street remains so inextricably attached to the newspaper trade that ‘Fleet Street’ is almost universally used as shorthand for the print and news industry itself. But the well-known connections don’t end there. Fleet Street has been featured in numerous novels, films and songs, and is associated with many historical figures. Because of its status as one of the most famous areas in the capital, leasing or purchasing Fleet Street real estate could be a shortcut to a world-class reputation.
Modern-day Fleet Street is a world of sharp suits and focused business attitudes. It’s a palladium of productivity, profit and performance. But situated between the commercial office buildings are numerous shops and characterful pubs. Some of the public houses date back many years, and many cultivate an ambience that belies their location in one of the world’s busiest financial districts.
Commuters will find public transport links that make it easy to travel to every corner of the capital by road or rail. Temple, Blackfriars and Chancery Lane tube stations are nearby, as is the City Thames link railway station, which takes travellers from Kent into the heart of the capital. The nearby Bank station provides a direct link from to London City Airport – perfect for long-distance business trips.
"Having appointed DeVono in March 2016 to find our next high profile London office from 2018, we have not been disappointed with their high level of service and meticulous attention to detail from the very first day, through to signing the Agreement for Lease and beyond. They assured us during the tender process that they would be right by our side all the way through and not just appointed to “do the deal” and this is exactly what we received."
"I have worked with DeVono for many years. I value their approach – always looking at the big picture, not just the deal. They consider the real estate challenges we face through our eyes, understanding not just the real estate reporting requirements but also the complexity of our organisation’s structure and stakeholders. I’m always very happy to work with the team and value their support."
"We were very satisfied with the service provided. You helped us find the perfect office to meet our needs and were prompt and effective in negotiating the deal on our behalf."
"Our second time using DeVono and again I was very impressed with the team - friendly, efficient and extremely commercial and honest. They understood the brief and worked hard to deliver the right property for our needs. In what was an unfamiliar area to me, they provided guidance on key issues and negotiated very good terms, highly recommendable."
"We have used DeVono as our property advisers for a number of years. Their greatest strengths lie in their ability to understand quickly what is required and to grasp all the relevant issues. They regularly ‘think outside the box’ and offer creative solutions to complex problems. We have no hesitation in recommending them."
