Located on Worship Street, Shoreditch, at the northern edge of the Square Mile and just north of Liverpool Street Station, Principal Place is a 15-storey mixed-use block designed by Foster and Partners with two roof terraces on levels 10 and 16 that offer nearly an acre of elevated outdoor space. The development is part of the Principal Place masterplan, which includes Principal Tower (a 50-storey residential tower designed by the same architects and due for completion in 2019) and a new public piazza. Archaeological digs at the site, ahead of construction, found the remains of one of the first gasworks in London. Completed in 2016, Amazon UK moved their headquarters to Principal Place in 2018. The building has capacity for 5,000 employees.
