Major letting secured for offices in City of London
An office property in the City of London – Watermark Place, based on Angel Lane in the EC4 district – will soon be occupied entirely by Japanese banking firm Nomura on a 20-year lease agreement. The property is currently being developed by Oxford Properties Group.
According to Property Week, Sadeq Sayeed, CEO of Nomura Europe and the Middle East, said:
“We are delighted to be the new residents of Watermark Place. Our return to the Square Mile will be the final step in Nomura’s transformation in London.”
Sayeed added: “The timing couldn’t be better as the rate of our expansion means we need a bigger space to accommodate our growing teams and we need to be close to our clients to keep up with the current pace of the business.”
As is common with a traditional lease agreement, Nomura will begin furnishing and fitting out the offices themselves. This is in contrast to a serviced office, where offices are typically furnished and fully fitted out by the office provider, as opposed to the business renting the space.
