The Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) is fully involved with the emerging proposals for Tech City, and is represented on the steering group with 10 Downing Street, UKTI, BIS and GLA. OPLC is exploring how accelerator space - flexible accommodation for fast-growing companies - can be provided on the Olympic Park, and is continuing to market the legacy opportunities for the Press and Broadcast Centre site to a range of companies and universities with an interest in technology, innovation and creativity.
