As part of the 'London is open' campaign, Lord Mayor Andrew Parmley's opinion piece refers to the 2 million strong international population working in London. 32% of workers in the City’s square mile alone are from overseas, including high profile figures from the stock exchange and Lloyds - that most British of banks.
So, If you move to London to work in the City, how do you choose a property that will reap you the benefits of living in this unique capital? History and culture, bars and restaurants, playgrounds and parks...these are just some of the amenities you’ll want in easy reach of your central London property, along with convenient transport links to and from your place of work or study. And would it be too much to ask for a quintessentially British property to call home while you’re here? Definitely not, says Dexters.
For those seeking a minimal home/work commute, residential neighbourhoods a short distance from the City are popular. Concierge-serviced penthouse apartments to rent in Tower Hill, and family houses for sale in Islington are just some of the property types available. Alternatively, the City’s square mile boasts no less than 12 underground stations, making a daily commute from other parts of the city - including those beautiful townhouses populating exclusive Kensington and Chelsea - equally desirable among London’s international financiers.
However long your stay, we'll find the central London property for you. Contact Dexters 8am - 8pm, 7 days a week.
"London is open”. This much-publicised campaign, launched by mayor of London Sadiq Khan and garlanded with column inches and broadcast coverage, is doing a great job of communicating the fact that the world’s greatest city wants nothing to do with the protectionism that seems to be appearing elsewhere in the world. We stand as a monument to the benefits of internationalism and openness. This openness, demonstrated across our nation, is a strength dating back centuries. We have always welcomed those who want to come here, work hard and contribute to society and the economy. Of London’s 5m workers, 2m come from overseas. And of that 2m, over half are from the EU. The Square Mile is no exception. Thirty-two per cent of City employees are from overseas.
