ASK signs lease for new HQ

ASK Partners is moving to a new head office after signing a five-year lease for 3,000 sq ft in Howard de Walden’s Marylebone head office building at 35 Harley Street.

Formerly based on Queen Anne Street, ASK will occupy the first floor of the newly refurbished office accommodation.

Howard de Walden returned in August 2021 to its historic headquarters following extensive refurbishment to occupy the entire building excluding one floor, which will now be used by the real estate funding specialist.

Daniel Austin, co-founder and CEO at ASK Partners, said: “This is an exciting move for ASK, reflecting our growth and vision for the company. 

“It is a privilege to occupy this historic space alongside Howard de Walden, which has been refurbished with great care to preserve its heritage, yet incorporate modern design and environmental standards. 

“We are looking forward to the next five years here at 35 Harley Street, which is the perfect location for us to continue to grow our lending business and property investment platform.”

Paul Bakker, property and asset management director at Howard de Walden, added: “We are delighted to welcome ASK as tenants and neighbours at our newly modernised headquarters. 

“The redevelopment created greater efficiency and enlarged office floorplates enabling the first floor to be offered to the office leasing market. 

“As with all refurbished buildings across the estate, we have improved the sustainability standards combined with sympathy to the heritage elements.”
