Insurance giant could need commercial cleaners
Category: Office Commercial Cleaning
Leaders at British Land and Oxford Properties have confirmed the insurer has signed a pre-let agreement to take on 191,000 sq ft of the Leadenhall Building.
This represents around one-third of the 610,000 sq ft complex, which is set to be completed in three years' time.
Aon could require commercial cleaners for the bottom ten floors of the 47-story building at first, but British Land chiefs have said the firm also has the option of taking up another 85,000 sq ft of space between floors 14 and 18.
More than half of the buildings being erected as part of British Land's £1.1 billion London office development have now been pre-let to businesses.
"The decision to move to the Leadenhall Building confirms our commitment here and offers us an ideal platform to continue to grow our business," commented Aon's chief executive officer Robert Brown.
Last week, cleaning companies that operate in London heard the British Council for Offices describe upmarket Mayfair as the ultimate location for international corporations looking to set up a British base.
