Old Street is at the centre of London’s innovation economy.
Its influence is unrivalled. So much of what makes east London the most exciting place to be right now is either based in Old Street or began within a stone’s throw of here.
Now it is the most eclectic creative hub in the capital.
Old Street Yard, a development by our clients - Derwent London, brilliantly positioned right next to the Old Street roundabout, is a new urban campus for London, which will offer flexible workspace, enabling start-ups and small businesses to establish themselves in London’s technology hub, giving them the space to develop and grow. Building a like-minded community of ambitious young businesses and established players.
The centrepiece of the new tree-lined public courtyard within Old Street Yard will be a bronze sculpture of a young man checking his tablet. This ground-breaking work by the artist Thomas J Price represents the modernity and inclusivity of the local culture. The courtyard will act as a hub for socialising and sharing ideas, which will be fully Wi-Fi enabled.
The foodie scene around Old Street reflects the area’s unique energy – always evolving, always exciting, bursting with talent and new ideas.
Old Street Yard will add to this by offering an intriguing variety of independent restaurants clustered around the campus.
There will also be an independent coffee operator in the White Collar Factory reception for the tenants and public alike to enjoy.
