UK-based investment bank Numis has leased prime office space at Gresham St Paul’s in the City of London to move its current office from the London Stock Exchange Building in Paternoster Square.
The firm will occupy the top three floors of new City of London office building and will expand its office space to 50,000 sq. ft.
Developed by Stanhope and the Swiss Investment Foundation, AFIAA, Gresham St Paul’s, at 40 Gresham Street in the City of London, includes approximately 170,000 sq. ft. of prime office space over nine floors, with large terraces on the top three floors, at the heart of the financial centre and close to St Paul’s Cathedral and other prominent cultural landmarks.
“We are looking forward to welcoming Numis to Gresham St Pauls. With Smith and Williamson having already agreed to move their HQ to the site, this latest transaction further signifies the strength of the London real estate and leasing market as well as London’s position as a leading financial centre in Europe,” Bardo Magel, AFIAA Head of Asset Management International, said.

“The agreement means that Gresham St Pauls is now almost fully let, with only the sixth floor of the building now available to let and we are very happy that we are beginning to see our vision for the development coming to fruition,“ Kevin Darvishi, Leasing Director at Stanhope, said.
“The building offers world class facilities, including the Wi-Fi enabled café, reception and business lounge on the ground floor. All of which will provide an enhanced occupier experience and further bolster the City of London’s reputation as a global centre,” he added.
