A mere stoneâ€™s throw from Londonâ€™s Olympic site for 2012, the much sought-after standalone location on Kingsland Road allows operations to be spread across 18,000 square feet of the state-of-the-art facility.
Planners at the SAE Institute are still finalising the details, but early indications suggest the Kingsland Road site will house 11 audio studios, a film mixing theatre (featuring the industry-standard Neve DFC PS/1), 4 video editing studios, â€˜green screenâ€™ capabilities and generally improved facilities throughout.
A new tube station, based near to Kingsland road and part of the East London Line, is slated to open in 2010, allowing for even easier access.
SAE Institute founder Tom Misner told us, â€œWith this latest development weâ€™re moving SAE London to Hoxton, the heart of creativity in one of the worldâ€™s most vibrant and important cities. Once again weâ€™re underlining SAE Instituteâ€™s commitment to learning, to technology and to the industries our students train to be a part of. But most of all itâ€™s about the commitment to our students. SAE Institute has consistently raised the bar when setting benchmarks for learning, but with this new facility weâ€™re taking things to a whole new level.â€�
