The Financial Conduct Authority have just been handed the keys to new headquarters in Stratford.
Almost 4,000 staff will be moving from a building in Canary Wharf to 15 storeys near the Olympic Park.
They’ve been in the current location since the 1990s.
Georgina Philippou, chief operating officer at the FCA, said: “This is an exciting time for the FCA as we move into our new purpose-built headquarters. Our modern offices will bring all London staff under one roof for the first time and offer a mix of excellent facilities, value for money, sustainability and the right infrastructure to meet our future needs. We look forward to settling in and playing a part in our new local community.”
The International Quarter London building, which is a joint venture between Lendlease and LCR, covers a 22 acre site and is part of Stratford’s regeneration programme. FCA staff are expected to move in over the summer.
