Nasdaq has signed a pre-let agreement at 22 Bishopsgate, a prestigious office development in the heart of London, with AXA IM- Real Assets.
Nasdaq will relocate its London office to 22 Bishopsgate where it will occupy the entire 25,000 sq ft 18th floor of the PLP designed building.
The 10 year lease deal brings the 22 Bishopsgate to 45 per cent occupancy and over 580,000 sq ft has now been pre-leased.
“We continue to invest and grow our presence in the UK to better serve our clients across all of our business segments. London has become an important technology and services hub for Nasdaq, particularly with our work with corporates, sell-side, buy-side, exchanges, regulators, as well as our industry and academic partners. We believe 22 Bishopsgate’s emphasis on sustainability-driven construction and its highly progressive focus on people’s wellbeing is fully aligned with our own outlook and were deciding factors in our decision to move to 22 Bishopsgate. We look forward to moving into our exciting new home next year,” said Bjørn Sibbern, President of European Markets, Nasdaq.
“Agreeing this latest pre-lease with Nasdaq, a world leading business, further demonstrates 22 Bishopsgate’s appeal to a wide range of businesses and sectors. Our core offering of providing a technologically advanced and people focused building with a wide range of amenities, which both promote wellbeing and provide businesses with flexible lease options that can align to their individual strategies, continues to resonate extremely well with potential occupiers who see their workplace as an extension to their brand,” added Harry Badham, Head of UK Development at AXA IM – Real Assets.
