Rental Costs & Considerations
Despite having a large amount of public sector businesses, Westminster is considered a good location for start ups, partly thanks to a four-year plan (2015 - 2019) initiated by the local city council with the objective of boosting entrepreneurial activity in the area. The Westminster Enterprise Programme targets would-be entrepreneurs interested in setting up a micro-business or a small company in the borough, particularly in the creative and digital sectors. Help is also available with the provision of low-cost workspaces and coworking stations.
In a similar fashion, Lambeth has an above-average number of micro-businesses (in fact, the highest percentage of all 32 London boroughs). Startup rates in Lambeth have been higher than the London average for 8 consecutive years, although it is worth noting that 5-year survival rates are below the city's average.
Although on the whole South Central London is highly developed, some Opportunity Areas have been identified by the local authorities. Victoria (where the local workforce is expected to increase by a further 8,000 jobs by 2026) is one such area, and work is already underway to make this area more appealing to business owners and investors. Moreover, the presence of world-class universities in the surrounding area means that business owners looking to establish themselves in South Central London have direct access to a vast talent pool.
With regards to price considerations, the average cost of office space in Southbank and Waterloo is in the mid-to-high £60s, and is at its highest in Mayfair, Fitzrovia, and near St James' Park, where it is not unusual for rents to exceed £100 / square foot.
