The London & Head Office of The Buying Solution (TBS) is moving to the prestigious Michelin building as of 9th August, 2017. After seven years in Yeoman’s Row, SW3, the team will be setting up their new home in one of London’s most iconic buildings, centrally positioned in the heart of Chelsea.
The Art Deco building at 81 Fulham Road was the first permanent UK headquarters for the Michelin Tyre Company Ltd. When it opened in 1911, it offered everything the motors and motorists of the time required from fitting bays to touring maps. Today, the much-photographed London landmark, which is home to Bibendum and the Conran Shop, is perfectly positioned in one of our clients’ most coveted buying areas of the capital.
Since being established in 2004, TBS has always based itself in and around Chelsea but this move to Michelin House marks a new stage for the business. Unlike estate agents, we do not require a high street presence or shop window, but realise the importance – both for our clients and our status as one of the foremost buying agencies in the industry – to have a landmark, memorable address. Here at the Michelin Building, we’ll be able to meet with clients in a space that’s synonymous with our brand.
The new offices stand at the crossroads of Fulham Road and Sloane Avenue almost equidistant between South Kensington station and Sloane Square. The location is on the doorstep of key search areas for TBS clients including the prime central areas of Knightsbridge, Kensington and Belgravia whilst at the same time, allowing us access to other core buying areas. This is so important at a time where our clients are pushing us further afield, as seen in recent purchases in Hampstead, Little Venice, Barnes and St Johns Wood to name just a few.
We’re excited to begin the next chapter of TBS in such a fantastic position. In London, best-in-class properties will withstand whatever challenges the political or economic climate might throw up. This move forward is our way of ensuring we continue to operate at the forefront of our business and deliver the best service to our clients at all times.
From 9th August, our new address will be as follows:
81 Fulham Road
London SW3 6RD
