Broadgate is a 32-acre neighbourhood that bridges the City of London financial hub and the creative, tech-focused communities of Shoreditch and Old Street. It’s the largest pedestrianised neighbourhood in central London. Together with our partners, GIC, we’re investing £1.5 billion to transform the area over 10-years. The campus hosts many of the world's leading financial, legal, technology and media companies, alongside some of London’s best food, drink, retail and entertainment. Four public squares provide an area of outside space which is unique in the City, providing the 30,000 people who work here and the 19 million who visit annually, with attractive places to relax and be entertained. This includes Exchange Square, a new 1.5-acre green space in the heart of the city. The result is a diverse, vibrant community and a world-class, mixed-use destination for London.

Our relationship with British Land is a genuine partnership. When we first started delivering Broadgate Connect, they were one of four employers who embedded one of our project managers in their team. Today, they’re the only one remaining."
Broadgate plays host to everyone from creative and tech companies to retail and leisure brands, and some of London’s best food, drink and culture.
