In a major boost for the City of London, international law firm Clifford Chance has committed to pre-let 321,100 square foot in a new building at 2 Aldermanbury Square EC2.

Welcoming the announcement, Policy Chairman at the City of London Corporation, Chris Hayward, said:

“This is fantastic news and a vote of confidence in the City of London. As part of our ambitious Destination City programme, we are committed to reimagining the Square Mile as a world-leading destination for workers, visitors, and residents.

Chairman of the City Corporation’s Planning and Transportation Committee, Shravan Joshi, said:

“We are delighted to welcome back Clifford Chance to the Square Mile. This is a reflection that our office market remains robust with strong demand from occupiers, investors and developers. The City has a unique concentration of high quality, sustainable office space together with unparalleled public transport connectivity and concentration of talent that underpins our offer.”
