Hothouse railway arches


We advised Freeform on managing the railway arches they planned to take over as part of their Hothouse development in Hackney.   The work involved assessing costs to run and income plus identification of the kinds of tenant who would be interested in locating there.  We also advised them on the lease negotiations with Network Rail (Spacia).
