reading: Google’s Tech City ‘launchpad’

London’s Tech City project received a boost from Google last night as the search giant announced that it had signed a 10-year lease on a seven-story office block.The new deal, which Google said was the first step in its commitment to support the Tech City start-up community, does not affect the location of Google’s main London HQ in Victoria, but is a coup for the Government-backed project to build the so-called “Silicon Roundabout” area of east London into a rival to Silicon Valley. Google declined to comment on how much the deal was worth but said it was significant.
