Commercial Property & Office Space, EC4, London
Situated in the south-west of the City, office space in EC4 benefits
from access to excellent transport links, public gardens, and a prestigious
The area is littered with historic landmarks, the most iconic of which
is St Paul’s Cathedral, which sits on top of Ludgate Hill, at the highest point
in the City. Built in the 17th century, Sir Christopher Wren’s building is
actually a relative newcomer to the site, which has been home to a cathedral
dedicated to St Paul for more than one thousand four hundred years.
EC4 is also the location of Fleet Street, which until recently was
considered to be the home of the British Press. In 2005 Reuters became the last
news agency to move out of Fleet Street, and now the EC4 office space is
largely occupied by investment banking, legal, and accountancy firms.
The East Central area of the City has good transport links to both the
Underground and the national railways. Blackfriars, Mansion House, Cannon
Street and Monument are all situated on the Circle and District lines, while St
Paul’s is on the Central line. Blackfriars station runs trains northwards to St
Albans, Bedford and Luton, and southwards to Brighton, Sutton and Sevenoaks.
Moorgate station is just a short walk away with services running to Hertford.
Businesses occupying office space in EC4 benefit from being
within close proximity to two public gardens. Carter Lane Gardens, and Festival
Gardens were both opened in the 1950s, making use of bomb-damaged land, and
provide a welcoming outdoor space for a lunchtime picnic.
