Why We Love Aldgate: Three Compelling Reasons to Choose Aldgate Office Spaces

Prime Location


Aldgate boasts a strategic location that’s nothing short of a commuter’s paradise. The tube station connects seamlessly with various essential London destinations. With just one tube connection, you can access virtually any part of the city, not to mention it’s a stone’s throw away from the Elizabeth line at Whitechapel.

Upon leaving the station there are three directions to go, each leading to special parts of London. Heading straight ahead takes you through the Minories, with Tower Bridge and St. Katherine’s Dock awaiting your discovery.

Opting for a left turn guides you towards Commercial Street, one of the most desired and coolest streets in all of East London. Whether you need to do some shopping, grab a quick bite or have a long lunch, there are so many great options. Detroit Pizza and The Noodle Stop in Spitalfields Market are a must-try! 

We recently placed a client, Orb X, in a beautiful industrial space on Commercial Street. The offices in this area are currently offering flexible lease terms and pre-fitted spaces. If you’re on the search for a new HQ, 60-62 Commercial Street is certainly worth a visit.

Choosing to turn right after leaving the station leads you straight into the heart of the City of London. If like us, you are a business with clients scattered across London and you prefer walking to meetings, Aldgate presents an ideal location for your next workspace.


Team Nights Out


Aldgate and its neighbouring areas have become a real melting pot of food, bars and exciting activity nights out.

At Soul Spaces, we like to treat our team to quarterly outings and have recently found ourselves gravitating towards Aldgate. Our latest adventure took us to OMESCAPE in Aldgate, an experience that left us thoroughly impressed, although it’s not for the faint of heart!

From there, we strolled to the Big Chill Bar, but there were so many options it was hard to pick! Next on our list is definitely the Boom Battle Bar.


Competitive Pricing


Despite its proximity to trendy neighbourhoods, positioned on the fringes of the city and not yet fully embraced as part of Shoreditch, Aldgate enjoys competitive office space prices. 

The Whitechapel building, a property owned by Derwent, is equipped with all the modern amenities that growing businesses need. There’s even some available space, ready to be occupied on favorable terms.

Our recent deal at The Hickman building, an outstanding property, reaffirms the cost-effectiveness of Aldgate. If it were a tad closer to Shoreditch, the rent would be increased significantly. Read the full story on how we saved our client TPXimpact 20% on their monthly rent here

I wouldn’t overlook Aldgate, Aldgate East or Whitechapel when considering your next workplace. With the rising importance of hybrid working, easily commutable workspaces and the demand for social workplaces in vibrant areas, Aldgate could finally see the anticipated boom that’s been expected for nearly a decade.
