Runescape developer opens Soho office

Jagex, the Cambridge games developer behind hit games including RuneScape and Block N Load, has opened its first London office in Soho.

Jagex joins a rich list of companies that have invested in the capital since Britain voted to leave the European Union including the likes of Facebook, Google and Apple.

The move will see the firm take up the 10,600 sq ft fifth floor of Great Portland Estates’ recently completed development at 30 Broadwick Street, W1.

This is the second coup in a week for GPE which has also secured the signature of BCG Digital Ventures, a corporate innovation, incubation and investment arm of The Boston Consulting Group, which has taken up the 14,600 sq ft second floor.

Commenting on the lettings, Neil Thompson, executive director of GPE, said: "We are delighted to build on our recent leasing success with two further high quality endorsements of this excellent Soho development.

“Despite only completing the building this month, we have already secured over 55% of the scheme’s gross development value – a figure we expect to improve on in the near future.”
