Relocate to one of the fastest growing economies in London

Why relocate to Croydon? This borough has received great injections of investment for growth and development, and the results are already apparent. Recently named the UK’s fastest growing economy with thousands of creative, tech and digital companies setting up base in the area; it’s also been recognised as one of the UK’s most demanded office space locations. Corinthian House is a landmark office building within the area and may be the perfect location to relocate your business – here’s why.

The Location

Corinthian House sits in the heart of Croydon town centre, across the road from both East and West Croydon stations; Britain's third busiest transport interchange is super convenient for occupants. At the head of the new pedestrian link will be the approved £1.4 billion Westfield and Hammerson retail development. The joint venture retail development, starting in 2019, will bring over 300 new stores making up the third Westfield complex in London. If your feeling like supporting more independent shopping brands, check out nearby Boxpark for your payday fix. On top of the recent developments’ exciting addition to the destination, it’s already a direct link to Gatwick Airport, London Bridge or Victoria station (about 15 minutes to/from either). There are underground links, and the Tramlink light railway which extends across South London to Wimbledon. Also, the East Croydon bus station has been recently upgraded, giving the public easier connections for both the trams and train, either eastbound or westbound.

Food and drink spaces

Bgr&Beer, a short 10-minute walk away, was rated as Croydon’s best restaurant by Time Out readers in 2016, offering a wide selection of – you guessed it – burgers and craft beer. If you’re craving something a bit more exotic, a similar walk in the other direction can take you to Thanh’s Bistro, serving great Vietnamese cuisine at affordable prices. Vegans and veggies can tuck into the vast meat-free options at Byte Café, which sits in Croydon’s tech hub, or simply grab a coffee for your lunch break. If you’re looking for somewhere to drink on a Friday, South Beats Cocktail Bar provides Croydon high street with both live music and a variety of cocktails, while The Orchard gastropub offers a friendly atmosphere, outdoor views and real ale.

Breaktime go to's

The atmosphere around Croydon is lively and diverse with plenty to explore. Fancy a quick tennis or bowling match at the Shirley Park? You can also find some peace in several green spaces around the locality, including the vibrancy of Queen’s Gardens. We’d recommend taking a jog around Park Hill Park, or a hike around Croham Hurst woods for an escape from the routine.

Croydon culture

Looking for some Friday or weekend experiences near work? Croydon has plenty to offer. The turf gallery is an artist-run contemporary art space, offering a variety of free exhibitions and events. The modern art gallery in Coulsdon showcases up-and-coming artists, where you can view or buy the art, or just lounge about in the New York-style art café. The Spread Eagle pub, built in 1893, offers both a delicious bite to eat as well as live theatre, comedy and film nights in its playhouse, ideal for any Friday night. Head over to the Oval Tavern for your fix of live music, with an emphasis on diversity as they offer rock, jazz, ska and folk nights.

Overall, Croydon is more than a great office space location, it’s a growing residential hotspot and often overlooked in terms of its entertainment and side activities. In fact, some of your employees may even already be living here.
