Serviced Offices in Shoreditch
- Despite its growing reputation for web tech, Shoreditch has maintained its status as one of London’s most fashionable areas. Making it the perfect spot for creative start-ups to rent serviced offices.
- Originally a mainly working class area, Shoreditch has rapidly become a centre for London’s web tech and digital sectors over the past decade. A large number of former warehouses have now been converted into edgy serviced office spaces with exposed brickwork, high ceilings with a modern industrial feel.
- Major international companies such as Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Intel and Cisco now have headquarters located in and around Old Street’s ‘Silicon Roundabout’. Rents have increased significantly alongside Shoreditch’s rapid growth, although serviced offices here are still more competitive than in west or central London.
- Among the first digital start-ups to make Shoreditch their home were Last.fm, Songkick and 7digital, leading the way for larger companies in later years. This area has now realised its initial promise as a tech hub, thanks to local and national investment, and is now commonly known as East London Tech City.
- In terms of nightlife, Shoreditch has a buzzing social scene, with scores of hip restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and nightclubs, perfect for entertaining clients. It also has an array of contemporary art galleries and is a popular area with some of the London’s most fashionable residents.
