The Cheesgrater just bagged two more big-cheese tenants – oil and gas company Petredec and insurer Fidelis.
Back in April, shipping broker Affinity took up 6,584 sq ft of office space on the 44th floor of the Cheesegrater for £90 per sq ft. At the time, this was a record for office rent for the City.
Petredec has signed a 10-year lease to take up 9,970 sq ft on the skyscraper’s 35th floor.
Fidelis has also signed a 10-year lease and will occupy 10,345 sq ft on the 34th floor.
Tim Roberts, head of offices at British Land, said: “Our strategy to lease the upper floors post-completion has been proved to be the right one, with nearly 200,000 sq ft let since last summer, and the building achieving record rents for The City of London.
“These lettings underline The Leadenhall Building’s position as a London landmark in the heart of one of the world’s pre-eminent financial centres.”
Chris Carter Keall, head of asset management at Oxford Properties, said: “The range of floorplates at The Leadenhall Building has given us a clear leasing advantage, and been a major factor in attracting occupiers from a variety of industry sectors, alongside financial services.
“We have completed 11 lettings since Practical Completion in 2014, which serves to highlight that the decision to commence construction in 2011, has allowed us to deliver an exceptional building into a buoyant occupational market.”
