DK, the illustrated reference publisher, has signed a lease agreement with Ballymore for 44,000 sq ft at One Embassy Gardens in Nine Elms.

DK, which has chosen to join colleagues from its sister company, Penguin Random House UK at One Embassy Gardens, whose move was announced in December 2017, will occupy three floors of prime office space with a combined size of 44,000 sq ft, relocating from 80 Strand office by 2020.

Developed by Ballymore, One Embassy Gardens has views over the River Thames, Linear Park and the new US Embassy building, with a neighbourhood combining business, and modern work space.

Ian Hudson, CEO of DK, said: “We are delighted to be moving to One Embassy Gardens with our Penguin Random House UK colleagues. This is a wonderful new space at the heart of one of London’s most exciting new developments.”

John Mulryan, Group Managing Director of Ballymore, added: “DK’s relocation to One Embassy Gardens is a great testament to Nine Elms’ remarkable transformation. Their move, in conjunction with Penguin Random House, will create a new media and publishing hub for London and we are looking forward to welcoming our new guests.”

Ballymore’s development portfolio in London includes Royal Wharf, London City Island, Embassy Gardens, Good Luck Hope and Wardian London.
