Posted: 4th June 2018

Mike McIntyre, Associate at DM Hall, joint letting agents on the scheme said: “I am delighted to welcome both DC Recruitment and DWS Group to Earls Court. It’s fantastic to see the development gaining momentum with three deals having now been completed within the last four months as well as a lease renewal. This run of transactions is undoubtedly due to the quality of accommodation on offer together with its excellent motorway access and I am sure that more will follow in the near future.”
