Tech giants bolstering London property market

Some of the world’s largest tech and creative businesses are setting up in the capital, enhancing London’s reputation as a global tech leader, and pushing up demand for office space.

Both Google and Facebook have set up headquarters in King’s Cross, and many of the smaller tech firms and startups are following suit by setting up in London, significantly boosting office take-up levels, a report by CBRE shows.

The Silicon Roundabout area, between Old Street and Shoreditch, gained popularity with internet companies originally due to its historically low rents. But there too, rents have soared. This, however, is not deterring tech businesses from making the move into the area.

As London continues to be one of the world’s leading technology hubs, and investment into the capital remains robust, so the influx of tech and creative giants to the capital will continue to strengthen London’s reputation as a global leader in digital technology.
