The London Cancer Hub is one of four leading London-based knowledge clusters to be highlighted in a prestigious report from a leading property sector organisation.

The London Cancer Hub features alongside other large science and technology initiatives in ‘London’s Knowledge Exchange Clusters’, a detailed report commissioned by the London Property Alliance.

The project – a collaboration between the London Borough of Sutton and The Institute of Cancer Research, London – aims to create the world’s leading life-science campus focused on cancer research, treatment, education and enterprise.

Along with King’s Cross and Euston – site of the Francis Crick Institute – Whitechapel and White City, the home of Imperial West, The London Cancer Hub is one of four major academic-business clusters in the capital that represent opportunities for developers.

The report emphasises our strong and coherent vision for the future of The London Cancer Hub, and its convenient south London location within easy access of both Heathrow and Gatwick airports as well as the M25 motorway.

The report’s publication coincided with the visit of a delegation of 20 real estate investors from China, who were invited to the ICR’s Sutton site alongside the Department for International Trade, which promotes UK investment opportunities to overseas investors.

The meeting was an opportunity for the delegation to hear about the progress already made with The London Cancer Hub, with the group enjoying a walking tour of the site and taking in ongoing building work and newly acquired land.
