JLL has signed a lease agreement for 134,000 sq ft at Broadgate, British Land’s 32-acre campus adjacent to Liverpool Street Station in central London.
JLL has agreed to take three floors at 1 Broadgate, representing a pre-let of nearly 30% of the office space, on a 15-year lease and will take occupation in 2026.
The building comprises 546,000 sq ft of some of the highest quality, most sustainable mixed-use space in London, including 498,000 sq ft of best-in-class workspace, 47,000 sq ft of roof terraces and 48,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space. Enabling works are already underway with demolition due to start in May 2021.
JLL and British Land, who have both publicly committed to achieving their own net zero carbon targets, will work in partnership to deliver a cutting-edge sustainable workspace that will push the boundaries for corporate real estate in central London and the wider industry.
1 Broadgate is being designed to meet the requirements of UKGBC Net Zero Carbon Buildings framework and is targeting highest level of BREEAM and WELL certification.
“Working in partnership with British Land, we have a real opportunity to achieve one of the most sustainable and technologically advanced workplaces in the UK. The campus excels in the connectivity and amenities, providing our people and clients with a vibrant, dynamic and collaborative space. 1 Broadgate will enable us to significantly push the boundaries to enhance productivity, improve wellbeing and support a wider community through British Land’s approach to managing the Broadgate campus and its Community Framework,” said Stephanie Hyde, UK and Ireland CEO at JLL.
“We are thrilled that JLL has chosen this fantastic building for its flagship UK office. The move is a real vote of confidence in London, a further endorsement of our campus strategy, and of Broadgate’s status as a world class, mixed use destination. This news follows the successful delivery of 1FA, 135 Bishopsgate and, most recently, 100 Liverpool Street, and marks the start of the next phase of our Broadgate masterplan,” added Simon Carter, CEO, British Land.
