The stunning Georgian architecture is the ideal backdrop to an area which within the last decade has established itself as a distinct commercial and cultural centre attracting eminent artist residents, independent and high street fashion retailers as well as a host of trendy bars and restaurants. To the east of Commercial Street is Brick Lane and the Truman Brewery Complex, Spitalfields’ focal point for creative and media industries, evidenced by the emergence of funky warehouse-style offices and hip coffee shops. To the west is Spitalfields Market which is the centre of an eclectic selection of restaurants, bars, shops and office space. Nearby Bishopsgate has also undergone significant regeneration over the last decade with the addition of the Broadgate Centre and Heron Tower which have attracted some of the leading firms in the Banking, Financial, Legal, Insurance and Real Estate sectors to an area already benefitting from great accessibility from Liverpool Street Station and soon to benefit from the addition of Crossrail.
