Built in 1993, Republic is a 600,000 square feet office development with retail and leisure amenities on a prominent 6.4-acre island site in the London Docklands. It is being refurbished and reimagined by Trilogy Property and La Salle Investment Management to appeal to the burgeoning innovation, co-working, cultural and tech sectors. With a distinctive building wrap from Studio Hingston and designs from award-winning architect Studio RHE, Republic aims to provide competitive rents to young talent priced out of central London locations such as the West End and Shoreditch.
Republic’s location, directly accessed by East India DLR station in E14, anticipates the eastward migration of the creative and digital sectors and cultural institutions and enjoys a Zone 2 location and transport links which connects in minutes to the established business districts of Canary Wharf, the City and West End, as well as the cultural neighbourhoods of Stratford and Shoreditch.
In 2016 restaurateurs Missy Flynn and Gabriel Price launched Quilombero on the site to much acclaim. In 2017 The Trampery opened the doors of Trampery Republic with a year-long gathering of digital creatives with anchor fin-tech tenant Accenture.
