South London estate agent KALMARs have announced that they have acquired a new office at 366 Old Kent Road in London SE1 which will operate alongside KALMARs existing head office at 2 Shad Thames; part of a strategic expansion plan to create a network of five London offices within the next five-seven years.
The new KALMARs office on Old Kent Road will provide 1,100 sqft of space and is set within an attractive Victorian parade, at the heart of this exciting regeneration area. The new office will be primarily for KALMARs residential sales and new homes operations and will be headed by Marc Faure, Head of New Homes, and Sebastian Kalmar, Residential Sales Director.
The office at 2 Shad Thames will continue to operate as KALMARs head office, led by Managing Director Richard Kalmar, and serve as the main base for the company’s thriving commercial division. Locations being reviewed for the other three offices are key south London destinations.
KALMARs decided to open a new office in the heart of the Old Kent Road regeneration area because as KALMARs recently published Old Kent Road Report shows the locality is undergoing a £10.7bn transformation.
Tired low-rise retail warehouses and factories are being replaced by new apartment buildings and mixed-use developments, providing 20,000 new homes and workspace for 10,000 new jobs, creating a new town centre for London.
KALMARs Managing Director Richard Kalmar says: “KALMARs is the leading estate agent in Southwark with no other firm instructed on as many commercial and residential properties recently we were marketing over half the offices for sale in SE1. Our boards are all over the local area giving KALMARs unrivalled brand presence in the marketplace. With our sister offices on Shad Thames and Old Kent Road we are looking forward to continuing the work we have done to help improve the Old Kent Road area and will continue to take an integrated approach for the benefit of both of new and existing occupiers.”
