Cheesegrater Gets Another Tenant

British Land and Oxford Properties have formalised their latest success for the Leadenhall Building with a binding agreement between the developers and Amlin PLC who wish to take up a substantial pre-let in the building.

The formalising of the Amlin PLC deal will see about 20% of the Leadenhall Building, better known as the Cheesegrater thanks to its triangular profile, being occupied by the firm.

The new tenant has signed up for floors 18-24 and 45 of the building with presumably the upper level with its small floorplate to be utilised for executive use. In total they will be taking 10,312 square metres of the skyscraper and have an option to take another 3415 square metres should they desire. At the same time Amlin also has the option up until September 2013 to not occupy level 18 which would reduce the firm's requirements by 1,486 square metres.

Amlin will be paying an average rent of £62.75 per square foot, which although relatively expensive for the City of London, is far less than the highest level of rents commanded there right now.

With this deal now done it means that the Cheesegrater, soon to be the tallest building in the City of London, is over 50% pre-let before it has even topped out. This event will occur next month on the 18th of June.

Great news for the Cheesegrater

Has there been any news regarding tenants in the Shard? I haven't heard much about it?

I know that it is not fully done, but that does not stop the developers from searching potential tenants. Look at the Cheesegrater, it is also not fully done, but they are still signing tenant contracts.

Terms have been agreed for a 95,000 sq ft pre-let deal between the developers and Amlin, an insurance group. The move further cements the immediate vicinity as an insurance hub, being the headquarters of:

- Lloyd's of London
- Willis Group (The Willis Building)
- Aon (The Leadenhall Building)
- Amlin (The Leadenhall Building)
- Liberty Syndicate and Liberty Mutual (20 Fenchurch Street)
- W.R. Berkley (Lime Street Square)
- Aviva (St. Helen's)
