Cancer Research UK and British Council to relocate to International Quarter.

31st July 2017

Lendlease and LCR, joint venture partners of International Quarter London, today announced Cancer Research UK and British Council have signed pre-let agreements to relocate their headquarters to the development next to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The two leading British institutions join Transport for London (TfL) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as the latest high-profile organisations to choose the £2.4 billion development in Stratford as their new base. 

Cancer Research UK and British Council will jointly occupy the third commercial building to be built at International Quarter London totalling 280,000 sq. ft., bringing the total number of people soon to be working at the development to over 8,000.

Stratford has become an increasingly attractive business destination as it offers the opportunity to collaborate with some of London’s brightest talent who will be based at the new University College of London and UAL’s London College of Fashion campuses. The area also offers direct access to some of the world’s most forward-thinking cultural institutions including the new V&A East and Sadler’s Wells Theatre venues that will form part of the Cultural and Education District.

Cancer Research UK said the move will support its ambition of 3 in 4 people surviving cancer by 2034. The British Council is excited about the unrivalled connectivity enabling a warm welcome for international and UK visitors. With 21st century facilities and vibrant design The British Council believe the move will help to inspiringly showcase the opportunities it creates worldwide.
