Principal Place is a new office development in Worship Street, Shoreditch, London. It is a 15-storey office block designed by Foster and Partners.

In July 2014, it was reported that the internet retailer Amazon.com was close to signing a lease to move its UK headquarters there. The project had been on hold since January 2012, when the anchor tenant, the law firm CMS Cameron McKenna pulled out. Soon after, the developer Hammerson sold its interest in the scheme to Brookfield.[1]

Alongside it, there is a 50-storey residential tower called Principal Tower.[2]
