New Spaces of Work: The Case of the Creative Industries in East London

This being said the start-up community in London, and Europe as well, still has a way to go before it can realistically compete with our American cousins. Nevertheless what we’re seeing in tech clusters like Old Street is the development and maturation of new types of urban agglomeration economies, and it is being led by the creation of hubs and co-working spaces.
