Posted on 3 October, 2015 by Chris Grigorovsky

Land Securities has announced that global executive search and talent advisory firm, Egon Zehnder, has found a location for its UK head office, taking 24,000 sq ft at Nova, Victoria, making it the second office letting 10 months ahead of completion.


Egon Zehnder will take floors 14 and 15 at Nova South on a 15 year lease, which is to begin at the start of 2017. The deal comes after Land Securities’ previous first office letting in the building to global private equity investor Advent International, which signed up for 25,000 sq ft in July.

Both Nova South and Nova North, which is due to be completed in July 2016, will deliver 480,000 sq ft of Grade A office space on a landmark site which sits opposite Victoria station.

The first phase of the mixed-use scheme will comprise two acres of new public realm, eighteen food and beverage units as well as 170 high quality apartments. It’s targeted to become London’s newest food quarter, with restaurateurs Jason Atherton and Will Ricker on board to open concepts at Nova, along with brands including Sourced Market and Bone Daddies.

Head of Commercial at Land Securities, Kaela Fenn-Smith, commented: “We’re incredibly pleased that Egon Zehnder has chosen to relocate at Nova.”

“Our transformation of Victoria is progressing with real momentum, and Ego Zehnder joins a growing list of businesses taking advantage of the first-class office space and up-to-the-minute amenities which we’re delivering throughout SW1.”

Miranda Pode, the London Office Leader, added: “We are excited about our upcoming move to Nova, Victoria. This is a critical decision for our firm and we believe this choice of location will be a great base for our continued growth as the market leader in senior level executive search and talent development.”

Egon Zehnder has over 400 consultants in 69 offices, spanning 41 countries and is a global leader in executive search and talent advisory services.

Land Securities was advised by Knight Frank and Cushman & Wakefield and Egon Zehnder was advised also by Knight Frank.
