Historically Chelsea has always been home to the rich and famous. Although still a magnet for wealthy individuals, it is still remembered for its arty, bohemian vibe, epitomised in the ‘swinging 60s’. With a TV show dedicated to its inhabitants’ lives and dramas, Chelsea is world famous for its shopping, its annual flower show and its football club.
Running parallel to the Thames, Chelsea’s King’s Road and Fulham Road, along with Sloane Square, offer world class restaurants, hotels, antiques shops, art galleries and boutiques. With credentials like this, it is no wonder that many can only dream of living in such a place.
In terms of its commercial appeal, the area’s penchant for attracting artists and pop stars has meant that Chelsea is most popular among those businesses with a creative edge. Advertising agencies, art studios and music industry headquarters are among the type of company you are likely to find based here.
Densely populated, re-development is the key when it comes to commercial property in Chelsea and future development projects such as the re-generation of Kensal Gasworks, are highly anticipated. With prices set to rise, those looking to invest in commercial property to let in Chelsea should act sooner rather than later. For those looking to rent a retail unit or office in Chelsea, it is no surprise that space here comes at a premium. It is wise to speak to a specialist who can help you find warehouses, offices or retail units to let in Chelsea.
