CITY ROAD LIVING
Captivating, creative and constantly changing, EC1 is renowned for its organic, evolutionary nature.
This is where the serenity of Regent’s Canal meets the buzz of a burgeoning technology industry. Where the industrial aesthetic of the nineteenth century is being transformed into twenty-first century living. All the while retaining a natural beauty that offers a welcome retreat for those who know where to find quiet spots such as City Road Basin.
This is the starting point for discovery as it has been for centuries. Since City Road and the canal were built, EC1 has been a hub from which to enjoy Clerkenwell’s leafy back lanes, Angel’s shopping streets and Shoreditch’s avant-garde culture.
250 City Road is in Zone 1 and so are the desirable shopping and dining destinations, private members' clubs and arts venues of the West End.
Tech City (also known as Silicon Roundabout)
encompasses the area between Old Street and
Shoreditch. It is the third largest technology startup cluster in the world after San Francisco and New York City, and the number one in Europe.
Its close proximity to the Square Mile as well as established tech firms like Google, Amazon and YouTube makes this an attractive location.
The prevalence of talent, sources of knowledge,
like the Alan Turing Institute and a growing
number of co-working spaces all add to the
area’s growing reputation.
