Transport for London appoints The Completely Group to enhance its commercial property portfolio

TfL owns over 1,000 retail properties at Tube, rail and bus stations and 1,200 arches under its railway lines. When properties become vacant, The Completely Group will highlight the property using their online channels ensuring properties are not left empty for long.
 
The partnership will enable TfL to improve its commercial activity by showcasing leasing opportunities through the UKs largest commercial property listings network and ensuring the properties are occupied. The property marketing group’s sites www.CompletelyRetail.co.uk, www.completelytradeandindustrial.co.uk and www.completelyoffice.co.uk  collectively attract in excess of 150,000 visits a month and boast over 25,000 registered users presenting a good opportunity for retailers to find out more about trading in some of London’s key locations with high footfall at Tube stations. TfL's transport network carries an average of over 27 million journeys every day.
 
Graeme Craig, Director of Commercial Development at TfL, said: “We are committed to delivering value for money for fare and taxpayers and improving the services on offer at our stations. This partnership with The Completely Group will enable us to make the most out of our commercial properties. Millions of people use our stations everyday so there is a real benefit to potential occupiers of our sites to benefit from the high footfall.”
 
Dom Millar, Managing Director of The Completely Group, says: “We are delighted to be working with Transport for London. Our online listings platforms and network provide the perfect channels to market the TfL's diverse commercial property portfolio.”
