London office space has a great deal to offer investors.
Office space in London has been praised for its diversity as the city looks to build on its Olympic fillip in 2012 to attract more business within the M25.
The London Chamber of Commerce and Industry is promoting the benefits of office space in London as the city looks forward to the Queen’s Jubilee and the Olympic Games in 2012.
With new office building projects taking shape around the Olympic park and sites in the City and the West End nearing completion, there is expectation that London can retain its place as a top global financial centre.
Ian Smith of the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry believes that prime commercial property office space can be found across London and thus enhancing its reputation.
Mr Smith said: “You have the powerhouse – I guess it’s Westminster – because there’s so much business activity, but then you have financial centres like the City of London and Canary Wharf.
“Then you have more artistic, up-and-coming areas like Silicon Roundabout and Tech City, and east London. You also have up-and-coming areas that are receiving a huge amount of public investment, then you of course have slightly cheaper options in terms of office space in south London – Croydon, Enfield – places like that – where there’s business activity and it’s perhaps slightly cheaper to set up an office space,” he added.
London was ranked top by Savills in a report relating to overseas investment last year and it is something that not-for-profit business organisation London Chamber of Commerce and Industry is keen to build on in 2012.
