Business in East London

East London is a vibrant business and economic hub in the UK's capital, enjoying rapid growth across a variety of industries and improved infrastructure, along with an increase in highly skilled workers.

The Docklands areas of East London have long been important centres for economic growth and development. From the seventeenth century, the area has seen manufacturing and trade as goods from across the British Empire were received, produced and sold. Tea, tobacco, sugar, spices, coffee and other goods all passed through East London's docks. Starting in the second half of the twentieth century, industry declined as the area's docks could no longer accommodate modern container ships. The result has been an economic transformation in East London.

Canary Wharf is one of London's major business districts and one of the capital's two main financial centres. It is a global hub for banking, media and legal sectors and has approximately 16 million square feet of office and retail space. Barclays, Citygroup, Credit Suisse, EY, Fitch Ratings, HSBC, Infosys, J.P. Morgan, KPMG, MetLife, Moody's, Morgan Stanley, S&P Global, State Street and Thomson Reuters are just some of the major firms based in Canary Wharf. More than 112,000 jobs are based at Canary Wharf, which also had five shopping centres with over 300 shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Technology is another economic driver in East London, particularly in Shoreditch. The Old Street Roundabout is the epicentre of Tech City and the capital's high technology cluster. Also known as the Silicon Roundabout, the area is home to various start-up and multinational companies in hi-tech and digital sectors. Amazon, Cisco, Facebook, Google and Intel are some of the major companies with operations in the area. City University of London, Imperial College London, London Metropolitan University, Queen Mary University of London, and University College London also have projects within the Tech City cluster.

Office Options in East London

Some of the tallest buildings in Europe are found along Canary Wharf's iconic skyline. The tallest is One Canada Square, a 771-foot skyscraper completed in 1991 and the second tallest building in the United Kingdom. Major office towers in Canary Wharf include 8 Canada Square, a skyscraper built in 2002 and the world headquarters for HSBC. One Churchill Place is the headquarters for Barclays, while J.P. Morgan has its European headquarters at 25 Bank Street.

Stratford's office options continue to grow at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park following the 2012 Olympic Games. Here East is an emerging hub for creative, digital, technology and media businesses centres around the former Olympic Press and Broadcast Centre. The site is equipped with some of the best data and connectivity infrastructure in Europe. With 227,200 square feet of flexible Grade A office accommodation, the Press Centre has spaces of between 13,300 and 139,805 square feet. The Broadcast Centre has 661,000 square feet of office space with spaces of between 4,731 and 159,658 square feet.

Former warehouses and factories have been transformed into offices throughout East London, helping to preserve the area's industrial heritage while providing modern spaces for businesses. Examples include the Tea Building, which was originally the site of the Lipton Tea factory. It now has 268,600 square feet of high-quality offices as well as a hotel and private members club. Shoreditch also has several co-working office spaces catering to technology companies, including Campus London. Developed by Google, Campus London houses a co-working space operated by TechHub with desks and office spaces. An on-site lab and programmes provide additional supports for entrepreneurs developing new products and services.

About East London

East London refers to a large area east of Central London and north of the River Thames, including the East End of London on the eastern fringe of the ancient walls of the City of London. The area includes six of London's modern boroughs, including Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets, and Waltham Forest. A large part of the London Borough of Hackney is also within East London including Shoreditch. East London is home to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which covers 650 acres and was built as the main venue cluster for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. The area is linked to Central London by the London Underground's Jubilee line and the Docklands Light Railway (DLR).

The historic heart of modern-London is the East End, which developed during the Middle Ages outside of the ancient city walls. Much of the development focused on old Roman roads, particularly from Bishopsgate and Aldgate. Industry fuelled further development eastward from the start of the eighteenth century. Much of the area's early industry depended on the River Thames, and several docks were built in Tower Hamlets and neighbouring areas. As industry declined, East London experienced significant regeneration from the late twentieth century. Redevelopment transformed London Docklands and created a new financial centre at Canary Wharf. The 2012 Olympic Games also spurred new development in Stratford.
