Avison Young in London - West End
Avison Young has been operating in London’s West End and City since 2014 and due to continuing expansion, moved its West End team into a new office in Ganton Street in November 2016. Ganton Street, situated off Carnaby Street in London’s Soho, is well-known because of the giant lightbulbs suspended over the street, which are especially eye-catching at night. Carnaby Street is one of the most iconic streets in London. The street was the epicentre of 1960s London during a time of huge social, cultural and political change and had a second wave of notoriety during the 1970s and 80s with the dawn of punk, rock and goth. This area is still very popular with tourists and Londoners today, and a buzzing and lively location in which to work.

London, the capital city of the United Kingdom, is a leading global city. It has the fifth-largest city economy in the world, after Tokyo, New York City, Los Angeles and Seoul, generating more than 20% of the UK’s GDP, and rising to approximately 30% if the greater metropolitan area is included.
As a global city, London is the headquarters of more than half of the UK’s largest listed companies (the “FTSE 100”), and approximately 100 of Europe’s 500 largest companies are headquartered in Central London, while 75% of Fortune 500 companies have offices in the city.
While serving as a leading financial centre, London has welcomed more than 480 overseas banks that have offices in the city, along with many other major professional services, media, tourism, technology and retail firms.
A key international transport hub, London has the world’s largest city airport system. As part of hosting the 2012 Olympics, significant investment was made in London’s transport infrastructure. This investment continues with major rail transport projects including Crossrail which is due to open in 2018.
