Standing close to the Tower of London, alongside the historic Royal Mint building, within a few minutes of St Katherine Docks and Tower Bridge, Royal Mint Gardens occupies a significant position in the heart of historic London near to the City of London.

Knight Frank were appointed selling agents of 88 Royal Mint Street last year and were in need of some impressive marketing collateral to showcase this iconic development.

The use of drones in the sale of property marketing is becoming more and more popular. Using a drone is an incredible way to capture footage from a variety of angles and altitudes plus it is cost effective and efficient, however securing all of the necessary permissions, especially in an urban area, can be incredibly difficult.

During the first lockdown period of 2020 we collaborated with a number of stakeholders to achieve the largest ever flight envelope in Zone 1 (400acres) above Grosvenor and Cadogan Estate (read more). This required a number of permissions, including from landowners, NATS, CAA and the Metropolitan Police Commissioner. With our pilot in residence Chris Gorman having the necessary qualifications to fly in a densely populated area and the connections already in place meant that we were delighted to be able to collaborate with Knight Frank to produce this incredible marketing footage:



“Working with DronePrep on this project took away any uncertainty or pitfalls that organising an aerial shoot in such a built up area could potentially cause. The end result was dynamic and detailed footage delivered at a fraction of the cost, and within a shorter time frame, than a helicopter shoot – ultimately providing best value for our client.”
