Central London Office Market Update Q4 2018
Central London Office Market Update Q4 2018Central London's solid fundamentals have continued to act as a major draw for occupiers and investors throughout 2018, despite uncertainty.
Despite continued uncertainty surrounding the UK’s exit from the European Union, Central London's solid fundamentals have continued to act as a major draw for occupiers and investors. The capital's rich and diverse offering of luxury retail, theatre, fashion and art underpin its world leading cultural status. The Technology sector continues to grow and thrive with London retaining the top spot in Europe for technology investment funding in 2018, raising £1.8bn. Furthermore, Central London’s status as Europe’s leading start-up hub was reaffirmed by 6.5% annual growth in the number of start-ups registering in London last year. The long anticipated arrival of Crossrail later this year will secure the capital's long term status as a world class City, despite short term instability.
