Evening Standard, 15th June 2015
Another leading advertising agency has swapped ad-land’s spiritual home in the West End for the funkier surrounds of Old Street and Shoreditch.
Landlord Helical Bar announced that DLKW Lowe, which counts Unilever, Post Office and Morrisons as clients, will ditch South Kensington in favour of a 15-year lease for around 45,000 square feet at its C Space office building on City Road.
The former carpet factory has been transformed by Helical Bar into a modern office, which retains the character of its industrial past. The building will be finished in August.
Matthew Bonning-Snook, development director at Helical Bar, said: “We made a call on the Old Street/Shoreditch area in 2012, with three purchases. It is now pleasing to see that the type of product we are delivering is right for this market.”
