Cancer Research & British Council take pre-lets at IQL

Cancer Research UK and the British Council have completed pre-let agreements to relocate their headquarters to Lendlease and LCR’s International Quarter in Stratford.

They join Transport for London (TfL) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as the latest high-profile organisations to move to the £2.4bn development next to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Cancer Research and the British Council will jointly occupy the third commercial building to be built at IQL totalling 280,000 sq ft to bring the total number of people projected to be working at the development to over 8,000. Dan Labbad, chief executive officer for international operations at Lendlease said the signings show how “Stratford continues to flourish following the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games”. “We are thrilled that globally-renowned organisations like Cancer Research UK and The British Council are choosing to make International Quarter London their new home,” added David Joy, chief executive of LCR.
