Hammersmith & Fulham Council is working to help local entrepreneurs and start-up businesses by offering new flexible workspace at Landmark House.
If you are a local resident running your start-up from home or the local coffee shop and seeking your first office, this may help your business grow and succeed, without breaking the bank.
The strategy reflects our shared ambition to make H&F the best place in Europe to do business with close collaboration between academics, businesses, entrepreneurs, and residents.
In partnership with H&F Council, the owners of Landmark House in Hammersmith have agreed to provide the affordable office space for the next six months.
Up to 20 desks are available in the fully-furnished office, with a rent of £265 per month for each desk. This includes all service charges, utilities, wi-fi and use of a communal meeting room.
Landmark House is a two-minute walk from Hammersmith tube station. It boasts views over Hammersmith Bridge and of the Thames, as well as air conditioning, 24-hour security on site, car parking spaces and lifts.
If you want a desk for yourself or your start-up, email: email@example.com to discuss.

PUT YOUR BUSINESS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
The Gardening Friends of Wendell Park
On Saturday 5th August from 10.30 onwards a group of volunteers will be working in Wendell Park to remove the invasive snowberry bushes in order to create space for planting new bushes. Many hands will make light work and if you can spare half an hour or more, do come to Wendell Park and help. If possible bring gloves, secateurs, a trowel, spade or fork and it is recommended you wear sensible shoes and long sleeved shirts and trousers. Wendell Park is a much loved community asset and this work will help to make it even more attractive.
