Let Us Do The Hard Work
Silicon Roundabout – the technology hub encompassing Shoreditch and Hoxton and with Old Street roundabout at its centre – is fast becoming Europe’s answer to Silicon Valley. New business and entrepreneurial start-ups sit alongside tech and retail giants in newly developed buildings such as Principal Place and The Bower. CBRE has well established relationships with the most prominent landlords in the area, as well as an excellent understanding of upcoming availability from both landlord and tenant disposals, creating the ability to unlock off-market opportunities.
Old Street has enjoyed significant investment since it gained fashionable popularity in the 1990s and is now an incredibly popular office location, not just for the tech or creative sectors but increasingly a far wider range of occupiers adding to the wealth of talent in the area. Old Street, as well as the wider EC1 area - including Great Eastern Street - is bursting with lively bars, restaurants and nightclubs. There are plenty of other facilities in the area such as gyms, spas and sports clubs for employees and locals alike to take advantage of. The locality is full of culture with the London Symphony Orchestra based at nearby St Luke’s and London arts mecca, the Barbican Centre, just over ten minutes’ walk from Old Street Station.
Hundreds of businesses – including creative, professional and financial services firms - have sprung up in Old Street, or have chosen to relocate to the area to benefit from the excellent connectivity, talent and networking opportunities. Microsoft and Google have both located hubs here and Amazon have recently moved their European HQ to the area. It’s no wonder that Old Street now has the highest density of tech firms in the UK and therefore remains highly competitive as a ‘City fringe’ location.
