Only five full levels available at The Shard following latest Letting

Posted on 25 August, 2015 by Neil Bird

Real Estate Management (REM) has today confirmed that it has let Level 26 of The Shard in its entirety, leaving only five full levels available at the 72-storey London Bridge Quarter landmark.


Leonteq Securities (Europe), a leading engineering and infrastructure partner for investment solutions, will relocate from its current West End offices to The Shard after signing a 10-year lease for the 15,912 sq ft space.

The Zurich based company is the eighth new occupier confirmed at Western Europe’s tallest building this year, which now houses 23 companies across 13 business sectors, including media, finance, healthcare, education, energy, professional services and technology.

In a joint statement, Irvine Sellar, The Shard’s developer, co-owner and vice-chairman of REM, and Leasing Director James Goldsmith said: “We pioneered the concept of the vertical city at The Shard and it is a huge endorsement of our vision that it continues to attract European industry leaders like LeonTeq.

“Interest in the remaining space continues to be strong with potential occupiers not only attracted to The Shard’s growing community, but London Bridge’s strong transport infrastructure and exceptional social amenities that will only continue to evolve as businesses and their employees continue to move into the area.”

London Bridge Quarter is a rapidly growing cultural and business district, developed by Sellar in partnership with the State of Qatar and managed by REM. Along with The Shard, which provides 1.3 million sq ft of mixed-use space, it includes The 600,000 sq ft News Building which is home to a number media and publishing brands.

JLL and Knight Frank are the leasing agents for The Shard.
