Office Space in The City of London

Whether you’re searching for a traditional office space to call your own or are keen on enjoying the benefits that come with being based in a coworking space – speed, flexibility, networking opportunities – CBRE can help you find the perfect home for your business in the City of London. Scroll down to find out more about your choices in the area.

The Area

The historic and spiritual heart of London, the City today is a vibrant and sprawling destination that is as famous for its iconic skyline as it is for its enduring association with finance, insurance and banking – as well as its famous EC1 postcode, of course.

At the centre lies the Square Mile where you’ll find more modern offices in and around Bank, Moorgate and Liverpool Street. But that’s not all. The City today covers a much wider area, including Farringdon and Clerkenwell in the north and Tower Hill to the east. Here you’ll find spaces in older buildings that have been transformed into creative hubs.

Types of Office Space Available in the City

In the City of London there’s an office space for every need and specification. That’s because it’s home to an extremely diverse range of stock, including spaces in brand new towers and refurbished buildings, as well as period premises that have been brought into the present day.

The centre tends to be dominated by newer and more iconic buildings, such as the Gherkin, the Walkie Talkie and the Cheesegrater skyscrapers, as well as lesser-known Grade A offices that offer both scale – i.e. some of the largest floor plates in the city – and flexibility. Further out you’ll find office spaces in properties that are better suited to smaller businesses and startups, such as former warehouses and industrial buildings that have since been converted into modern workspaces.

And within all of these, the entire spectrum is covered, from coworking spaces at the most flexible end, serviced offices somewhere in the middle and long-term leases at the other end.
