London's Shard developer seeking office tenants in 2011

The developers of mixed-use London skyscraper the Shard will start their search in January to find an anchor tenant to replace Transport for London (TfL) in the yet-to-be finished building's prime-grade office space.

"We are purposefully taking our time, watching what the market is doing. We have a very advantageous position," James Sellar, chief executive of Sellar Property Group (SPG), told Reuters on Thursday. The Shard, which is adjacent to London Bridge Station on the fringe of the City financial district, will be Europe's tallest building when completed in 2012.

It will total 898,000 square feet of floor space, including 595,000 sq ft of plush offices priced at a headline rent of up to 70 pounds ($110) a sq ft, SPG Chairman Irvine Sellar said. Irvine Sellar expected the building to be fully pre-let before it opened mid 2012.

"Letting will be in the mid- to late-50s (pounds a square foot) at lower levels rising to 70 (pounds) per square foot at the higher levels," he said. Some companies had expressed interest in leasing offices in the Shard, including US banks, the chairman said. Property consultant King Sturge said third-quarter average prime rent in the City of London was 52.50 pounds a sq foot, up 6 percent year-on-year.

The building is being developed by The London Bridge Quarter (LBQ) joint venture, in which SPG is a partner with Qatar. LBQ bought-out TfL's pre-let agreement for 192,000 square feet earlier this year. Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts has pre-let 192,000 sq ft of the Shard.

A wonderful tower in a wonderful city.

This really is the best cladding ever. Take a look in that video two posts above mine. The quality of the reflection is awesome.
