Tech Giants Investing in London Offices Despite Brexit Uncertainty
Taking opportunity where others are reacting with melodramatic panic, tech giants Facebook and Google continue to see London as a pivotal location in Europe’s map for the future.
While continental European cities such as Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin reach out to attract start-ups and SMEs in preparation for the UK’s official departure in March, Facebook have opened a new 600,000 square foot office in King’s Cross. With space for 6,000 workers to nearly triple its current workforce of 2,300, the new building is a statement signalling a strong investment strategy from one of the largest global technology companies.
Steve Hatch, Facebook’s managing director for Northern Europe stated recently: “The UK is one of the best places in the world to be a technology company and we’re investing here for the long term.”
Now a few minutes’ walk from Google’s impressive new London complex, Facebook is one of many firms gearing up for a bright London future.
