Our location: Canalside life

You’ll find us at Here East within Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at Stratford. We’re lucky enough to have sporting facilities, green spaces, cycle paths and amazing eateries on our doorstep. 

We can also call businesses, academic institutions and creatives like Loughborough University, BT Sport, Studio Wayne McGregor, Ford and University College London our Here East neighbours. 

Getting here’s a breeze, thanks to a shuttle bus connecting us to Stratford bus, train and underground stations. We’re also a five-minute walk from Hackney Wick train station.

Our design story

Plexal has been designed a mini-city, complete with a central square for people to meet, Plexal Park for parties or events and a high street, which connects our private offices.  

The layout encourages serendipitous connections to take place while catering to both extroverts and introverts who want to contemplate in quiet.  

And from secure, high-speed internet to LoRa broadband connectivity for companies working on connected devices, we have the right IT infrastructure in place to support companies working on the bleeding edge of technology.
