Shoreditch/Clerkenwell has undergone a number of economic and property market changes over recent years. The area surrounding Old Street roundabout (colloquially known as Silicon Roundabout) has been the subject of a much publicised Government initiative to attract inward investment and increase growth within the digital, creative and high technology sectors of the UK, European and wider global economy.
Traditionally seen as a cheap alternative to the City, with relatively low quality stock, the area, has seen rapid rental growth as developers have brought to market various new quality buildings.
Many of the historic industrial buildings are also being converted to residential use to fulfil the growing demand of City professionals for their pieds à terre close to the City of London.
Shoreditch/Clerkenwell has its roots in the printing industry and remains popular with media occupiers. More recently, the TMT and serviced office operators have been attracted to the area due to its trendy image and comparatively cheap rental profile.
Shoreditch/Clerkenwell is now becoming a location for stage two tech firms who are acquiring the size and characteristics of mainstream companies. This is a healthy progression for the market.
