Grab an office to let in the City now, while you can

Even if the credit crunch has affected London’s economy, the City still retains its position as the leading international global financial centre as well as one of the worldwide hotspots for office space to let.

However, the City of London is set for its worst annual take-up this year, since the crash of 2000. Business centre operators and developers are now to offer free rental periods, which is not uncommon in the office industry. But in this case, this is an indicative sign of the state of the City of London office market.

This is why Search Office Space, the Original Global Office Broker, highly recommend businesses looking for a prestigious office location in London to hurry and grab some space in the City of London while they can. Search Office Space list all serviced and managed office space as well as meeting rooms and virtual office solutions available in the City.

Should a business need office space near an underground station, the business centre listed by Search Office Space on Gresham Street, EC2, would be the best office location to have at discounted rate. The building is a couple of minutes away from Bank tube station, with its access to the Northern Line, DLR and Waterloo. Moorgate and Mansion House on the circle line are within a few minutes walk, as are Liverpool Street and Cannon Street mainline stations.

Offices within this fantastic period building, offer modern business facilities and state of the art IT, all inclusive, for a great value for money. The centre offers a discounted price on the license fee for all businesses signing up for 12 months.

Should a business need an office half way between the west end and the city, then the Lemon Studios on Clerkenwell Road in EC1 would be ideal. The Business Centre is about a two minute walk to Farringdon tube (District & Circle line), and less than a four minute walk to Chancery Lane (Central Line).

This centre is a serviced office community for digital and new media professionals. It has specifically differentiated itself from the other serviced office environments out there by keeping fixed costs. There are no additional charges on top of the rent apart from the actual telephone calls (i.e. the business centre operator doesn’t charge for meeting room usage, additional internet charges etc.).

Another great location in the City of London is Blackfriars, in between the financial and legal districts. The centre recommended by Search Office Space, is located on New Bridge Street. It is specialised in Hot Desking and offers great discounted prices should a business need a desk for a day, a week, a month or more. Blackfriars underground (District and Circle lines), St Pauls (Central line) and Blackfriars City Thameslink mainline stations are few minutes walk from the centre.

Many other offers are available and can be seen on Should prospects need more details about a centre, receive a free quote or would like to book a tour for a centre in the City, west end or anywhere in London and UK, please call 0800 740 8080 or email [email protected] .
