Aon looking for London office space

Risk management company Aon is believed to be considering office space in Central London.

Eurohypo, a German real estate bank have recently bought up a site in the capital and Aon are supposedly one of the interested parties.

The site will be located at 6 Bevis Marks in EC3 and will generate new office space in the city.

Other sites that Aon are reportedly interested in include 122 Leadenhall street or ‘The Cheesegrater Building’ and the 20 Fenchurch Street ‘Walkie Talkie’ tower.

The ‘Walkie Talkie’ tower is a controversial development that is to create 660,000 square feet of office space, but conservation companies such as English Heritage are concerned that the skyscraper will damage the iconic skyline.

The development is to be carried out by the Canary Wharf Group who are expected to announce the project as a joint venture with property company Land Securities.

In other office space news, law firm Stephenson Harwood have awarded ISG a contract to fit out their offices at 1 Finsbury circus in Central London.

The project is due to be completed by April 2011 and ISG are to fit out 130,000 square feet of office space. ISG previously refurbished the building in 2008, due to this the building retained its Grade II listed facade.

Renovations made to the eight storey building include a central atrium and glass lifts. Thanks to the work carried out by ISG the property now holds a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating.

ISG operate throughout the UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia delivering construction, fit out and management services.
Previous clients include the likes of AOL, Selfridges, Sony and Microsoft.
