Shoreditch Office Space today announced the launch of a new website dedicated to providing access to the office rental market in the Shoreditch area of London.The new site allows visitors to gain quick access to information about serviced offices and conventional workspace available in Shoreditch, and to quickly obtain rental prices, get detailed information and to arrange viewings.
“We are very proud of this new site, and believe it fills a gap in the market for companies that wish to obtain space in this extremely important area of London,” said spokesperson Clare Jones. “Shoreditch and London’s ‘Silicon Roundabout’ is now the third most popular area in the world for technology start-ups after San Francisco and New York, and our new site is focused exclusively on space in this area.”
At the end of November 2010, there were 85 start-up companies in Shoreditch and nearby Old Street. Fast-forward to 2012 and according to Wired Magazine’s figures there were over 5,000. These creative digital startups in technology, and technology services industries soon gained media prominence. When Prime Minister David Cameron outlined government support for creating a new “Silicon Valley”, the timing couldn’t have been better for the Shoreditch tech industry.
“Many major technology companies have invested in Shoreditch, and the area is heavily supported by both local and national government schemes for academic partnerships.” continued Clare Jones. “The aim of our site is to give fast access to the best office space available, and to help people obtain the space they need to hit the ground running in one of the most exciting areas in the world.”
Shoreditch enjoys close proximity to the City of London and to London’s Tech City, one of the world’s most vibrant technology hubs. Olympic Park in East London is one of the city’s most important transportation hubs and has direct links to St. Pancras International and to London City airport. University College London has a campus nearby, where groundbreaking start-up incubators have been part and parcel of East London’s unstoppable rise as one of Europe’s leading innovation hubs.
