Profile: Taylor McWilliams on luring traditional and creative occupiers to Aldgate 

Taylor McWilliams is a dressed down, part-time house DJ, with grand plans to install a full-sized Tube carriage in the reception area of his new east London office development. In short, the 34-year-old Texan is not exactly the picture of tradition. If anything, at first glance he appears to epitomise the opposite.

But looks can be deceiving and woe betide any quick-to-judge investors or, indeed, rival developers, who might write him off as yet another bright young thing dabbling in the London property market to cater for east London’s growing army of start-up kids.
