Shoreditch is an extremely popular area for a variety of businesses, sectors and industries. The area is very much ‘mixed-use’ with a variety of highly sought after retail, media-style offices, cutting edge restaurants, trendy bars and loft apartments.
The new Shoreditch High Street Station opened in 2011 which has improved the area, increasing accessibility and connecting the area to the north and south suburbs of London. The improved transport connection has served to provide a foot fall to the brand new Box Park retail centre and to the various retailers in the area. Redchurch Street in particular has received a lot of attention from luxury brands with some commentators hailing it ‘mini Bond Street’. Considered to be in vogue, the area has also been the chosen location for many new restaurants concepts and new bars. Despite the area’s status Shoreditch has retained a lot of its make-shift approach and artistic charm making the area a popular location for a wide range and large number of media and creative companies.
