Who works in Nine Elms?


Published on

Meet Marcus.

As a Trainee Site Manager at St. James, Marcus Arrogah’s days are different every day. Working on Nine Elms Lane, he can see the south bank changing right before his eyes. New buildings going up, old industrial areas shedding their exoskeletons.

Hailing from Annemasse, France, Marcus now calls Roehampton home. He’s excited about how the progress at Nine Elms is starting to bring value to the locals here. It’s what Marcus enjoys about Nine Elms: the constantly changing scenery and vibrant arts & culture scene. He sees this place as “becoming the next prestigious place to live, attracting the attention of important people like actors, musicians and artists”.

Marcus spends his time at work on all sorts of tasks – some that take days, others mere minutes. It keeps him on his toes and constantly learning. But after work, Marcus might head to local pubs like The Duchess, The Masons, the Nine Elms Tavern at Riverlight, or pop into the local Sainsbury’s or Tesco’s for a quick bite to eat.

So the next time you see this stylish fella in Nine Elms, say hello.
