LaSalle Fully-Lets two buildings on London’s Historic Throgmorton Avenue

February 11, 2015 – LaSalle Investment Management, a leading global real estate investment manager, has announced that it has fully-let its two building’s on London’s historic Throgmorton Avenue, EC2, as demand remains high for quality office space in the City.

Recruitment company BMS Sales Specialists signed a new ten-year lease for the final 2,056 square feet on the first floor of 4-6 Throgmorton Avenue, at a rent of £53.50 per square foot.                                

This follows the letting to The Federation of Oils, Seeds and Fats Associations (“FOSFA”) in August, which saw it agree a ten-year lease for 2,073 square feet on the building’s third floor at a rent of £43 per square foot.

Next door at 2-2a Throgmorton Avenue, intellectual property law firm Lane IP took 2,670 square feet on the building’s first floor on a five-year lease for a rent of £45 per square foot.

Throgmorton Avenue is positioned between Throgmorton Street and London Wall on a private gated thoroughfare belonging to the Drapers’ livery company and Carpenters’ livery company. It is five minute walk from both Bank Underground and Liverpool Street rail and underground stations.

4-6 Throgmorton Avenue is 10,930 square feet listed period office building that has been extensively refurbished to provide high quality accommodations across its six storeys. 2-2a Throgmorton Avenue provides 16,508 square feet of Grade A office space following its refurbishment arranged over basement, ground and five upper floors.

Gary Player, Head of London Business Space at LaSalle Investment Management, said: “Both Throgmorton Avenue buildings capture the benefits of a central City location. Bank and Liverpool Street stations are all found within a six minute walk of the property, and the pedestrianised avenue has evident appeal to many City of London workers.”

LaSalle was advised by JLL and Newton Perkins on the office lettings. BMS Sales Specialists were advised by Dohertybaines; FOFSA was advised by BBG; and Lane IP was not represented.
