Partners Group and YardNine complete 55,000 sq ft letting to Royal London at EightyFen
Partners Group and YardNine are pleased to welcome Royal London, the largest mutual insurer in the United Kingdom, to EightyFen. Having exchanged contracts in August 2021, the lease for 55,000 sq ft of the 14-storey Grade A office development has now completed.
Due to take occupancy in [x], Royal London will occupy floors ten to fourteen of EightyFen, the development named after its location at 80 Fenchurch Street in the City of London, benefitting from a highly sustainable and agile working environment as well as panoramic views across London and access to the development’s large roof terraces. Royal London joins Arcadis, which took occupancy of 40,000 sq ft across floors five and six of the building earlier this year.
EightyFen was completed in October 2020 and provides more than 240,000 sq ft of Grade A office accommodation, with sustainability and smart technology embedded throughout. The building is designed to the highest environmental standards and has achieved BREEAM excellent and WiredScore platinum ratings alongside a host of sustainable design and operations elements.
Occupiers benefit from easy access to Aldgate and Fenchurch Street stations, as well as close proximity to open public spaces including Aldgate Square and Braham St Park. The river is less than 10 minutes away and a host of cultural, leisure and educational amenities are close by.
Maxwell Shand, Director of YardNine, said: “Welcoming Royal London to EightyFen is an exciting start to 2022 and we look forward to seeing London’s continued recovery this year as it resumes its position as a thriving centre of activity and the best city in the world in which to work.”
