Twitter decides it doesn’t like the look of the neighbours.
In a somewhat surprising U-turn, social media giants Twitter have decided they won’t be relocating to the same Regent’s Place office building as Facebook.
Having signed off on the space almost four months ago, it appears that the arrival of Facebook has been enough to put the micro-blogging site off moving into the same NW1 property. The 18,000 sq. ft. space is expected to be sublet in the near future.
There have been a number of significant moves in recent months among internet giants in the capital, with Google’s plans for a vast King’s Cross ‘groundscrapper’ currently under review.
With excellent transport links and a huge regeneration project underway, there is an increasing interest in North London as an emerging sub-cluster of Tech City. The next 24 months will see the largely derelict space behind the international travel hub transformed into a vibrant selection of residential, work and social spaces.
Twitter will now be looking for a replacement space between the West End and King’s Cross, having outgrown its existing space close to Great Portland Street. Shoreditch Office Space look forward to seeing where the newly-floated company will position itself.
