DTZ Investors Co-living brand Folk receives recognition for its brand and Harrow location, The Palm House   


Folk (, DTZ Investors co-living brand is on a mission to set a new standard for renting, with The Palm House, Harrow, voted as the best co-living community in the UK and the best place to live in North London at Homeviews Resident Choice Awards 2024.

Folk is on a mission to set a new, higher standard for renting by making it about building communities and being somewhere people are proud to call home. Folk properties connect people from all walks of life in diverse communities that are designed with renters needs in mind.

The Palm House, which opened in February 2022 has been designed to meet Folk’s key pillars of community, convenience and connection, providing amazing communal spaces that encourage social interaction, with residents referring to the property as “A beautiful place to live”, “perfect balance of privacy and social life” and saying “I would recommend to anyone and everyone”.

Taking note from extensive renter research and changing behaviour due to the pandemic, Folk set out to provide a new standard for renting that not only tackled a growing feeling of isolation and loneliness amongst solo renters in the capital but also the traditional pain-points tenants face within the London rental market including large deposits, poor work from home environments and little or no outdoor space.[1]

Built across eight floors, the property itself, with studio apartments starting from £1,445, offers a bills included rental agreement with the addition of access to shared spaces such as a gym, roof terraces, on-site restaurant, 24/7 on-site team and more. The site is also conveniently located a 12 minute train journey from Euston and just a three minute walk from Harrow and Wealdstone station.

COLIV Fund Manager, Chris Saunders, says, “DTZ Investors (COLIV Fund I) created Folk Co-living to offer our residents comfortable and inspiring living spaces that they can call home. We are proud that Homeviews, a trusted name in the renter community, recognises our fund's objective to deliver high standards and exceptional residential living experiences across all our properties. The Palm House's recent recognition as the best co-living community in the UK and the best place to live in North London is a testament to the Folk team's tireless efforts in creating a seamless and enriching living experience. We are excited about the future of Folk and the opportunities to continue providing high standard of living across our portfolio. This recognition marks just the beginning of our journey.”
