Design District is a permanent home for the creative industries — 16 buildings by eight pioneering architects, one minute from North Greenwich Underground station. Rent a desk, a floor or an entire building for just £5 per sqft rent for the first 12 months and find a new way of working. With affordable spaces, comprehensive facilities and flexible leases, everything is designed to help creative Londoners thrive. Opening this Summer.
