News U.K. and London arms of Dow Jones, HarperCollins to be under same roof
News UK, which comprises the U.K. press titles including The Sun and The Times, and the U.K. divisions of Dow Jones and HarperCollins will be housed together, and begin relocating to the new site, The Place on the south bank of the Thames River, next summer.
“Our new London location in the vibrant borough of Southwark will allow us to realize one core objective as the new News — to work more closely and creatively, and leverage our collective resources,” said Robert Thomson, chief exec of News Corp.
The Place sits alongside The Shard at the heart of the London Bridge Quarter, a major redevelopment next to London Bridge station, one of the best-connected travel hubs in the U.K.
News UK is currently based in Thomas More Square in Tower Hamlets. HarperCollins is in Hammersmith and will use The Place as its London headquarters. Dow Jones has offices in Holborn and the City.
