Why choose commercial property in Clerkenwell?
The development of a new ‘Tech City’ region has had a substantial impact on the area between Old Street and the Olympic Park in Stratford. Since the official endorsement, a wide range of international firms have invested in the region including Google, Facebook, Cisco and Intel and many others.
A number of different academic institutions have partnered with a variety of projects within the tech cluster, including City University London, London Metropolitan University, Imperial College London and Loughborough University. The huge potential in the area is obvious: indeed, for digital businesses Clerkenwell and the nearby Shoreditch are probably the two most desirable regions in the capital.
With close proximity to King’s Cross St Pancras as well as Angel and Farringdon stations, Clerkenwell offers easy access to both the rest of London and swift rail links to the rest of the UK.
Finally, the area itself is a lovely one in which to work, with a variety of different restaurants, bars and locations – several of them Michelin starred – located nearby. There’s also a vibrant night life. For employees, in other words, Clerkenwell has serious appeal.
