“An excellent understanding of the market”

Soho based Palantir had seen a rapid rise in headcount, and needed to expand their Central London location.

While not considered a tech hub, Soho was a great fit for Palantir’s brand. So after looking at other destinations, we focused out attention on finding a large enough space in a market with few generously-sized options.

The resulting off market pre-let of 60,000 sq ft in 20 Soho Square suited the business perfectly: in the heart of Soho, and at an iconic address that reflected their rise in status.

We have worked with C&W for the last few years and have always been pleased with the team’s performance in London.

They understand our business and provide tailored advice that meets our requirements. Toby & Will provides an excellent understanding of the market and has implemented our real estate strategy in a competent and efficient manner and have driven all projects to a successful completion.
