Eye-Form’s a new Location

Lewis Craig are delighted to announce the relocation of their retained client Eyeform Ltd, from their existing premises at 3 New Cavendish Street across the road to 28 New Cavendish Street.

With specific instructions to retain their Marylebone address, Lewis Craig utilised local market knowledge in relocating Eyeform Ltd to a smaller more manageable premises. This was an off-market situation in which we negotiated the acquisition of the lease from the existing tenant at 28 New Cavendish Street and simultaneously concluded terms for a new lease with the landlord.

Lewis Craig marketed and successfully arranged for a disposal of the lease on Eyefrom’s existing premises at 3 New Cavendish Street to Little Green Paint Company, an exciting brand taking their first Central London store following the success of their concession in Selfridges.

Eyeform is a unique business and has been located in Marylebone for over 20 years now. Specialising in creating glass eyes for people of all ages, Eyeform’s owner Kanti Fatania had the following to say. “I have been trying to relocate my business for many years now and it was only recently that I started working with Lewis Craig who made my vision become a reality.

They understood the importance of maintaining the location whilst reducing my occupancy costs, an exercise which they were able to carry out swiftly and well beyond my expectations. I would be delighted to recommend Lewis Craig”.

We wish Kanti and the staff of Eyeform the best of luck for the future in their new premises.
