It depends if you like warmth from strangers. I like parisians better because they don't fake relationships but if you need to be helped for a reason they'll take some time for you

Yes I love the progress, this is my favourite skyscraper in London, I prefer it to the shard. I love the industrial look of it and the cladding !

Shard is a gigantic tall glass pyramid.

It didn't impress me much when I saw it at close by it did impress from a far! Kind of odd!!!

I love this building so much. Its going to be a landmark in its own right - as will 20 Fenchurch Street. My friend from California is coming to visit me in February 2014, and I will be taking him to London every other day, I will LOVE the fact that London will have all these new skyscrapers up and finished by then.

I also think the cladding is amazing!

Amlin Signs On The Leadenhall Building

http://www.britishland.com/media/new...1-05-2013.aspx

British Land and Oxford Properties are pleased to announce that their 50:50 joint venture has exchanged a binding Agreement for Lease with Amlin plc for a pre-letting of 111,000 sq ft at The Leadenhall Building, London, EC3. The letting represents approximately 20% of the office space in the 610,000 sq ft tower which is under construction and on programme for delivery in mid-2014.

Amlin will occupy levels 18-24 and level 45 of the 47-storey building on 20 year lease terms with tenant break options providing an average lease term of 14 years to first break. The average rent will be £62.75 per sq ft. Amlin also has options to take up further space totalling up to 36,760 sq ft. Up until September 2013 Amlin also has the option to choose not to take up a lease on level 18, which would reduce the base take to 95,000 sq ft.

The Leadenhall Building is now over 51% pre-let. Occupying a prominent position opposite Lloyd’s of London, it is already established on the London skyline and recognised as a new icon for the city.

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.”
