McDermott Will & Emery confirmed as Heron Tower's first tenant as Landmark Plc and Sushi Samba also take space

Following the news that Heron International has received planning permission for its mixed use scheme, Heron Plaza, the London based developer has finally confirmed that international law firm McDermott Will & Emery (MWE) will be the first tenant in the City's tallest building, the 46-storey Heron Tower at 110 Bishopsgate, EC2. The 230m tall development, penned by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) is built around the innovative three-floor village concept with the 36 office floors formed of 10 three-floor villages and one six-floor village that provide a total of 442,928 sq ft Grade A office space.

The US law firm has taken 24,945 sq ft on the 8th and 9th floors of the landmark development, part of village three and will pay £55.00 per sq ft for the Grade A space, the highest rents seen in the City since prior to the global credit crisis. MWE has already appointed KKS Strategy as their interior architect and is expected to move into the building by the end of the first quarter, once main contractor Skanska has finished construction. The Chicago based law firm previously occupied 35,382 sq ft across five floors at nearby 7 Bishopsgate, which is currently undergoing major refurbishment.

Boutique serviced office provider, Landmark Plc has also been confirmed as having taken village six within the new tower, totalling 36,926 sq ft across floors 17 to 19. The firm currently has four prestigious sites in the City, three of which are Grade II listed and the other being the recently redeveloped, 125 Old Broad Street, where Landmark leases the 6th and 7th floors.

The remaining office space in the Heron Tower is expected to be let village by village or floor by floor to various international firms with the rental values that Heron can achieve for the top floors set to provide a clear indication of the strength of the City office market as prime rents are expected to push past £62.50 psf. The open plan office space within the tower is seen as particularly flexible for potential occupiers given that all internal services including 10 high speed double deck lifts have been located at the south side of the building.

Confirming the international appeal of both the Heron Tower and the City of London that Gerald Ronson, Heron's Chief Executive is so keen to promote, the New York based group, Sushi Samba, which fuses together Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, music and design will also open a branch of its very much in vogue restaurant concept across the top three levels of the Heron Tower, comprising 13,423 sq ft as well as an impressive 3,143 sq ft of roof terrace space. Two dedicated high speed scenic lifts at street level will whisk those looking to dine 175m above the City of London to the 39th floor from the dedicated restaurant entrance that fronts directly onto Bishopsgate.

Heron International has also stated that renowned restaurant operator Drake Morgan, who already run four sites across London including both the Alchemist and the Folly in the square mile, has taken 5,770 sq ft of space on the ground floor. The privately owned firm will open a 250-cover restaurant complete with two bars towards the end of May, which will be known as 'The Drift'.

Heron Tower in City of London Is One-Fifth Leased, Owner Says

The Heron Tower, the tallest office building in the City of London financial district, is more than 20 percent leased after four tenants signed contracts, developer Heron International Ltd. said.

Landmark Plc, the London-based serviced office firm, took the largest amount space with 37,000 square feet (3,400 square meters), followed by Chicago-based law firm McDermott, Will & Emery with 25,000 square feet in the 461,000 square-foot skyscraper, Heron International said today in a statement. The other two leases were taken by restaurant and bar operators.

“We are very encouraged by the level of interest in the building and look forward to announcing further lettings in due course,” said Jonathan Goldstein, Heron International’s deputy chief executive.

The City of London is facing a shortage of prime office space after projects were postponed following the onset of the financial crisis. Land Securities Group Plc last month began work on the stalled tower known as the Walkie Talkie, which it is developing with Canary Wharf Group Plc. Also in January, British Land Co. restarted construction on the building known as the Cheesegrater in a joint venture with Oxford Properties Group Inc.

I agree with your comment re the foyer dutchsnookerfan, but I think they were referring to some publicity shots of office floor space released some time back.

We're not talking about renders, there were real shots from the office levels a few months back.

Those ceilings seem to be too low.
