JP Morgan begins hunt for London HQ tenants

Here's an extract from an article published on www.marketwatch.com today:

JP Morgan has begun looking for new tenants to occupy its existing City of London headquarters as it prepares its relocation to the former Lehman Brothers building in Canary Wharf.

The U.S. investment bank has instructed two property consultants DTZ and Cushman & Wakefield to sublet over 700,000 sq ft of office space at its City of London offices in Alban Gate and Aldermanbury Square.

JP Morgan still owns the Riverside South land--and has instructed CWG to continue building to street level--but has extended the development contract from 2013 to 2016.

The full article can be found at http://www.marketwatch.com/story/jp-...nts-2011-06-10.

The riverside path alongside riverside south opened up today...the first time we have been able to walk along the river for 4 and a half years! There may also be some more vantage points for interesting photos...

I think we'll still be debating the "will they? won't they?" about this site in 2020!

It seems to have gone the way of every other London scraper, find a tenant first and it gets built!

What they have called '1 Bank Street' on the 3d map is 'Heron Quays West' right?
Beautiful building, 'Riverside South' and 'Heron Quays West' are my favourite out of the possiblities at CW.

I thought that it was 5 months to restart, but they were only building it to ground level. Unless I've missed something...

J.P. Morgan will continue to work with the Canary Wharf Group in order to develop the Riverside South site at Canary Wharf for future use.

“This is very good news for London and for Canary Wharf,” said George Iacobescu, Chief Executive of Canary Wharf Group PLC. “J.P. Morgan is one of the largest and most prestigious banks in the world. This decision secures London as the European headquarters for J.P. Morgan and is a huge boost for the U.K. as the economic recovery starts." - From the JP Morgan website.
