Go upto Wembley or Elephant and castle this is already big buisness. More premium flat rentals with gyms etc. Decent margin for the provider. 

However.. Not quite the same game renting to DSS in Coventry say. Not sure where the corporate comes in there... Having said that with this goverment prob award the contract to sergo on 2,000pcm for a flat, any flat, anywhere.
