A NEW pre-letting deal has been announced that will see Amlin take 110,000 sq ft of office space in the Leadenhall Building.
The deal represents about 20% of the space in the new build at 122 Leadenhall Street which has acquired the nickname of the “Cheesegrater”.
Amlin, specialists in insurance and reinsurance, will take levels 18-24 and level 45 of the 47-storey building which is due to complete mid-2014 and is a joint venture between British Land and Oxford Properties.
Chris Grigg, Chief Executive of British Land said, “This significant second letting confirms The Leadenhall Building as a world-class building. We are very pleased to be in business with a company of the standing of Amlin, a market leader in the insurance sector.”
Paul Brundage, Executive Vice President, Senior Managing Director Europe of Oxford Properties said, “Our partnership with British Land at The Leadenhall Building has been a great success and this latest significant leasing deal with another prominent occupier evidences this. We look forward to welcoming Amlin to the building and fostering a long standing relationship with them.”
Charles Philipps, Chief Executive of Amlin plc said, “We are very pleased to be moving to The Leadenhall Building. It will be an uplifting new office for us in a building of high architectural quality and an unbeatable location directly opposite Lloyd’s Insurance market.”
The annoucement means that over half of the Cheesegrater has now been pre-let, with other tenants to include Aon.
