Cancer Research UK has been handed the keys to its new Stratford office.
The charity is moving to the International Quarter London (IQL) in the autumn, occupying a 278,000 sq ft building known as 2 Redman Place.
It will be joined in the block by cultural relations and education organisation the British Council.
IQL, on the edge of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, is a joint venture between Lendlease and LCR which features flats, offices and shops.
Lendlease project director Andrew Tobin said: "Cancer Research UK's arrival, closely followed by the British Council next year, will be a tremendous addition to our community at IQL.
