Gloucester Forum project puts city on the map

The £107 million Gloucester Forum project is making waves nationally as The Times reflects that the city is capitalising on a 'London exodus'.

The article in today's Times reports that the city is positioning itself to attract young professionals leaving London, promoting its proximity to GCHQ.

The 600,000 sq ft digital campus it says caters for 'a new age of hybrid working' with its two seven-storey buildings linked by a 'sky bridge'.

The report adds that 'those behind the Forum are confident that it will benefit from a shift to the regions as workers reconsider their ties to the capital'.

Esther Croft of Reef Group is quoted as saying: "For national or global firms there's an opportunity to tap into a regional talent pool and create a centre of excellence that offers something that more established locations can't match."
