Hayley Wills, ARLA Propertymark member, and Area Manager, for be:here Hayes said:

“The Gatefold Building is one of the first genuine developments in London that have been designed especially for renters, based on what they told us about the way they want to live their lives. So it is not surprising to see how popular be:here Hayes has been since its opening. Residents are happy to see good value for the money they spend on their home. Demand has been so strong that we have very few apartments left.”
