Choosing your office location is a difficult task. You have to factor in the best transport links, the local amenities as well as the general atmosphere of the area. Nothing quite effects the dynamics of an area more than the companies who are already situated there. Your potential neighbours will give the location a certain ambience: prestigious, corporate, creative etc. and you need to make sure the area suits you and your business’ image. Read about who your neighbours could be at Orega’s newest location in Canary Wharf:
