The De Beauvoir Block, in the heart of Hackney’s creative district, is a vibrant employment hub in De Beauvoir Town for businesses and individuals working in creative and design sectors.
‘The Block’ is owned and managed by the Benyon Estate and, ahead of the building’s completion, KOR Communications supported the Benyon Estate with an opening event; a sparkling evening reception, with the official opening conducted by Meg Hiller MP.
KOR also deliveres communications activity to:
- Raise awareness of De Beauvoir Block’s offering as a creative, collaborative place to work.
- Support and engage tenants in establishing a news community.
- Demonstrate that the De Beauvoir Block is a forward-thinking, responsible business, supporting and working alongside the local community
Our work includes providing news for local press and sector publications, and producing a series of tenant profiles to showcase The Block’s high-calibre of businesses.
We have worked with partners on successful award entries, provided support on digital and social media activity, as well as a press office function.
Since opening, the development has been (almost always) at capacity, with its tenants growing and expanding, some into other Benyon Estate properties. The Block has a highly positive reputation within the creative industries and both its hot-desking space and workspaces are highly sought-after.
