The UK’s creative economy is one of its great national strengths, historically deeply rooted and accounting for around one-tenth of the whole economy. The creative workforce provides jobs for 2.5 million people and in recent years has grown 4 times faster than any other sector, with Soho at its epicentre.
More recently, corporate and nancial occupiers traditionally drawn to St James’s and Mayfair are increasingly viewing Soho as a preferred alternative for their office base.
The vast improvement in amenities and appealing working environment attract a younger more dynamic work force which has fuelled demand for further office space. Recent occupiers to move into the area include Telefonica, Och Ziff, Generation Investment Management and CarVal with other nearby occupiers including Sony, Warner Music, 20th Century Fox, M&C Saatchi and Twitter.
Soho has become one of London’s most exclusive and sought after residential addresses where contemporary living meets character and excitement. A fully immersive neighbourhood of boutique retail, markets, leisure, restaurants, colleges, theatres and galleries combine to offer residents the world’s amenities at their doorstep.
Outstanding existing communications and future Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) services offer residents a short walk into Mayfair, a 5 minute train to the City, a 28 minute ride to Heathrow or a 2 and a half hour train to Paris.
