at me and SO143 posting exactly the same pics within less than 2 hours of each other.

Must have made an equal impression of us both?

Landsecs in ‘Walkie Talkie’ letting talks

Land Securities is closing in on signing up the first tenant for their flagship City of London skyscraper, the so-called Walkie Talkie building.

The UK’s largest real estate investment trust by market value is in discussions with Kiln Group, the insurer, about its taking up a 60,000 sq ft pre-let agreement in the 37-storey tower, people close to the deal said. The company has only two years to run on the lease in the building in Leadenhall Street where it occupies about 47,000 sq ft.

News of the negotiations comes just a month after Costar reported that Landsecs had opened negotiations with Markel, another insurer, about the possibility of its taking up space in the 690,000 sq ft Walkie Talkie. Although nothing has been agreed yet, the approaches from the two companies underlines the fast-growing presence of insurance groups in the City office market – traditionally the heartland of the UK’s banking industry – as they make the most of the supply of new buildings in Europe’s pre-eminent financial district.

British Land, Landsecs main rival, also recently announced it had struck a deal with Aon, the US insurance group, to take up 191,000 sq ft of space in its forthcoming Leadenhall Building development, nicknamed the “Cheesegrater”. The two towers form part of a cluster of four skyscrapers under construction in the City. The buildings are expected to capture some of the demand arising from lease expires and breaks, which are expected to hit 3m sq ft a year in the City until 2017.

It seems like the core takes up almost as much room as the useable floor space... I cant imagine the bottom floors will be that great to work in either, they seem pretty dark

london skyline is still under development and in a few years many more taller skyscrapers will be built around the shard, in the city, canary wharf, vauxhall, croydon, west london and more. london has a big ambition and it's aiming for massive skylines and many new towers will be scattered in various places across the entire city and this is how big city works
