In pictures: Amazon's massive new office in Shoreditch


Amazon is turning its back on its UK headquarters in Slough and moving to a new 15-storey office around the corner from Silicon Roundabout in Shoreditch

The US retail giant is set to take up two thirds of the £500 million Principal Place development which spans 600,000 square feet across a plot situated between Liverpool Street and Shoreditch High Street stations.

Plans suggest that it will have a swimming pool, tennis court and basketball court on the roof terrace.

Construction is due to begin later this month and Amazon will move in the year after the development’s completion in 2016.
