Announcing “unprecedented demand for rental properties in and around Chelsea”, Benham and Reeves Residential Lettings has opened a new office in Imperial Wharf.

Set in the heart of the prestigious riverside development, Imperial Wharf has its own brand new station and is a four minute train journey from Clapham Junction. As appointed letting agents for the developer St George Central London Ltd., the company has already let over 500 properties at the development since its launch and there are plenty more posh pads to go. This is the second new office to be opened by Benham and Reeves Lettings this year – the first opened at Canada Square, Canary Wharf in June, bringing the total number of offices across the capital to ten.

“The London lettings market is flourishing and we’re seeing continuing high demand for properties in London’s best residential areas,” reports Anita Mehra (pictured), Managing Director of Benham and Reeves Lettings in London. “The opening of our tenth London office is a real landmark for us and, with the surge in demand for rental properties at Imperial Wharf and other nearby developments such as Chelsea Harbour, this is the ideal location.”

“Imperial Wharf is tremendously popular with corporate tenants. The apartments really are luxurious, with great views and high spec interiors that offer the ultimate 21st Century lifestyle. Tenants love the stunning riverside location and the trendy shops and restaurants in the nearby Kings Road and Fulham. Of course, that’s why we’re also finding a high level of interest from professionals waiting to move into other nearby developments such as Battersea Reach, Regent on the River, The Gallery and Falcon Wharf where we also let properties on behalf of our clients.”

“We’re receiving a phenomenal level of enquiries for rental apartments at Imperial Wharf.” adds Glen Neligan, manager of the new lettings office. “It’s not hard to see why – the facilities are fantastic and the location, right next to the river in its own landscaped parkland, really is breathtaking. And with prices starting at £450 per week for a two bed apartment, units are keenly priced and well within typical corporate budgets. We’re already the first port of call for prospective tenants who come to us as we have the largest choice of properties of any local agent.

"And of course, for landlords, that means they can be sure we’ll let their property quickly to a fully referenced tenant. Until now, we’ve been handling enquiries from our Kensington office, but with a dedicated lettings office on site we’re even better placed to offer both tenants and landlords a really comprehensive and convenient lettings service.”
