The event, well attended, was featured in the Evening Standard, and along with the recent moves in the Hammersmith office market – dunnhumby signing for the former Access self store warehouse on Brook Green, and Coca Cola judging this is the moment to sell their unused Hammersmith building – show the increase in desire for a W6 location.
DevSec are reported to be close to signing Pernod Ricard for three floors in 10 Hammersmith Grove. They have already signed Bill’s and Byron for restaurant units on ths site. Their agent reports daily interest in the remaining space.
The signs are that Hammersmith is a happening location, which is a good thing for West London.
Adding to the warm feeling is the relationship between DevSec and the Lyric Theatre. Performing at the launch were the excellent Young Lyric Singers. DevSec are working with the cutural grain in this part of town to make sure their building becomes part of it. This is to be applauded, and celebrated. Indeed it will be at Place West London in October, when delegates will have the opportunity to tour Hammersmith, see 10 Hammersmith Grove, see the Lyric’s new rehearsal and education facilities, and hear from the local BID about the ground breaking work they are doing.
