JLL to Lease Flagship UK Office at 1 Broadgate 
08 April 2021
 

JLL has today confirmed that it has signed an agreement for lease for 134,000 sq ft at Broadgate, EC2, British Land’s 32-acre campus adjacent to Liverpool Street Station.  

1 Broadgate will become JLL’s flagship UK office, taking three floors on a 15-year lease and will take occupation in 2026. 

The building comprises 546,000 sq ft of some of the highest quality, most sustainable mixed-use space in London, including 498,000 sq ft of best-in-class workspace, 47,000 sq ft of roof terraces and 48,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space. Enabling works are already underway with demolition due to start in May 2021.

 

"Pushing the Boundaries for Corporate Real Estate"

 

JLL and British Land will work in partnership to deliver a sustainable workspace that aims to “push the boundaries for corporate real estate” in central London and the wider industry. 1 Broadgate is being designed to meet the requirements of UKGBC Net Zero Carbon Buildings framework and is targeting highest level of BREEAM and WELL certification.

JLL will also retain a base in the West End from 2026 to allow colleagues to flex around clients’ needs. 

Stephanie Hyde, UK and Ireland CEO at JLL, said: “Throughout this unprecedented time we have worked closely with clients and our own people to develop and evolve workplace strategies. 1 Broadgate will be central to our plan as we recognise the importance that offices play in collaboration, innovation and fostering culture and wellbeing.

“Working in partnership with British Land, we have a real opportunity to achieve one of the most sustainable and technologically advanced workplaces in the UK. The campus excels in the connectivity and amenities, providing our people and clients with a vibrant, dynamic and collaborative space. 1 Broadgate will enable us to significantly push the boundaries to enhance productivity, improve wellbeing and support a wider community through British Land’s approach to managing the Broadgate campus and its Community Framework.”

Simon Carter, CEO, British Land, added: “We are thrilled that JLL has chosen this fantastic building for its flagship UK office. The move is a real vote of confidence in London, a further endorsement of our campus strategy, and of Broadgate’s status as a world-class, mixed-use destination. This news follows the successful delivery of 1FA, 135 Bishopsgate and, most recently, 100 Liverpool Street, and marks the start of the next phase of our Broadgate masterplan.”
