Lettings app Movebubble has signed a deal with sustainable developer EcoWorld to market build-to-rent homes on a site where Pink Floyd records were once made.

Be:here Hayes is the first development from EcoWorld that will feature on Movebubble.

The complex is part of the Old Vinyl Factory redevelopment of the 18-acre former EMI record plant in Hayes, Middlesex, where groundbreaking albums by The Beatles and Pink Floyd were once pressed.

The site is located just 300 yards away from Hayes & Harlington railway station, also a stop on the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) scheduled to open in 2021.

EcoWorld is an award-winning Malaysian-based property developer focused on providing sustainable property around the world.

Be:here Hayes (pictured below) offers 119 one and two-bedroom apartments. The development is pet-friendly and features on-site concierge services and free super-fast 30Mbps broadband for residents.

Leisure facilities

The development also features restaurants and leisure facilities and has a 7,000 sq ft roof terrace for residents.

The Old Vinyl Factory also taps into its musical past with a live music venue.


Movebubble CEO Aidan Rushby welcomed the partnership with EcoWorld.

“Our exciting partnership with EcoWorld allows us further to increase the number of high-calibre spaces available on the Movebubble platform while collaborating with a partner that champions sustainable practices in the property industry,” he said.

“Renters are becoming more aware of companies with a green ethos, and developments such as be:here Hayes provide renters with such renting opportunity in the capital.”

Vinny Bhander, managing director of residential investment at EcoWorld, added: “Be:here Hayes is an exciting development that was built for the modern-day renter, and Movebubble provides the perfect platform to market it to London’s growing number of renters.”
