Media reports on iCITY shortlisting

The announcement of the shortlisting of Infinity’s subsidiary, iCITY, has attracted attention from media across London, Britain and the world. The decision was reported in the Financial Times, Guardian, Times and Daily Telegraph, by the international business news service Reuters and in numerous specialist outlets.

The Guardian drew attention to the potential for the Press and Broadcast Centres to become part of London’s growing technology cluster, writing that “Prime Minister David Cameron has said he wants the tenants to be part of his vision of a “tech city” stretching from Shoreditch and Old Street to the Stratford Park.”

Property expert Paul Norman also picked up on this in his blog, saying that iCITY “certainly has the lead in terms of how it fits in with the government’s touted hopes for the area to help with the creation of a hi-tech bleeding edge work hub stretching all the way down to the Old Street roundabout”.

The London Evening Standard noted that iCITY would partner with higher education to build an innovation and research centre which could “showcase British technology”.

Insidethegames.biz quoted OPLC Director of Real Estate, Duncan Innes, saying iCITY was one of “three very strong bidders”, focused on “the creation of thousands of jobs and training opportunities”.

TechWeek Europe focused on iCITY and described how the huge space would be filled with “a cloud computing centre, research labs, post production, graphic designers and digital education”.

Infinity established iCITY to create a world-class hub of innovation and enterprise in order to help deliver the Prime Minister’s vision of East London as one of the world’s great technology centres. The announcement and full details of the project can be found here: http://icitylondon.com
