LaSalle lets over 15,000 square foot to RGA Underwriting in Brentford

LONDON March 2, 2015 – LaSalle Investment Management has let 15,672 square foot of office space at 27 Great West Road, Brentford, to risk solutions company RGA Underwriting Limited at a rent of £27.75 per square foot.

RGA Underwriting has taken the entire third floor of the building following its comprehensive refurbishment to Grade A standard, along with improvements to the building’s common parts. The letting follows news that software company RSI Retail solutions had signed a new lease to occupy the building’s 6,050 square foot sixth floor at the start of last year.

RGA Underwriting has been based in West London since they were established in 2001, and have grown consistently over this time. The company provides bespoke risk solutions in the insurance sector to its intermediary partners throughout the UK, offering flexibility for their clients.

27 Great West Road is a seven-storey landmark office building fronting the M4 and A4 Great West Road. RGA Underwriting joins other high-profile corporate occupiers on the stretch of road known as the ‘Golden Mile’, including Sega, Worley Parsons GlaxoSmithKline, EMC, BskyB, Samsung and JC Decaux.

Gary Player, LaSalle Investment Management said: “There has been strong demand for high-quality office space in West London over the last year from corporate occupiers with strong covenants. Great West Road is strategically positioned and benefits from extensive transport routes into Central London and the UK’s regional cities. By refurbishing 27 Great West Road, we have positioned the building favourably to take advantage of the lack of supply in the market particularly for larger floorplates.”
