New tenants sought for London 2012 Press and Broadcast Centres for after the games...
After the London 2012 Olympic Games have finished, the athletes have gone home and the camera crews have taken down their kit, the Olympic Park will need new occupants.
The Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) is the body in charge of finding new uses for the buildings that remain once the event is over and companies to make them their home.
The OPLC this month put out a formal call for businesses wanting to move in to the Press and Broadcast Centres, which comprise one million square feet of space between them. Technology, digital, new media and creative businesses are among those the organisation would like to see take up residence in the park.
An impression of how the two buildings could look after the games is shown above.

The Press Centre, shown here, will be home to 20,000 journalists for the duration of the games. Post-Olympics, its 317,000 square feet will be made available as office space for around 2,000 workers.
The OPLC is looking for businesses to take on "significant chunks" of the Press and Broadcast Centres, according to an OPLC spokeswoman, on either a short or long-term lease.
The OPLC has already been in discussions with developers and fashion technology companies about the future of the buildings, she added.

As for what type of businesses are expected to move in to the Olympic Park, the OPLC is keeping its options open.
"We have to be open-minded," the OPLC spokeswoman said. "We don't want to end up with two empty buildings."
However, those hoping to call the Olympic Park home will need to conform to certain criteria.
"[Tenants] could be anyone, but we have a vision. If someone wanted to make it into a storage yard, that wouldn't fit our vision," she said.
