Aon signs ‘Cheesegrater’ pre-let

Posted on by Rob Powell

AON, the risk management company, has pre-let almost 200,000 sq ft of office space in the City’s new Leadenhall Building.

Already nicknamed the “cheesegrater”, the new skyscraper at 122 Leadenhall Street, London, will reach 47 storeys when built – with ten of them taken by AON.

The Richard Rogers-designed Leadenhall Building is a joint venture between British Land and Oxford Properties and will stand opposite the famous Lloyd’s of London building.

Chris Grigg, Chief Executive of British Land said, “This significant letting to a leading global business is good news for the City and demonstrates the success of our commitment to creating well located world class buildings that provide long term value to occupiers. I am very pleased to welcome Aon to The Leadenhall Building and continuing our well established relationship with them.

Robert Brown, CEO Aon Limited said, “We are delighted to have chosen The Leadenhall Building as our new London headquarters. The Aon Centre at The Leadenhall Building places us at the heart of the City’s insurance sector and the building’s impressive location and offices reflect our standing as the leading global professional services firm focused on risk and human capital management.

Construction of the 224m-high office building in the City of London is currently under way.
