2022 will see Smith & Williamson, the financial and professional services firm, move in to impressive refurbished City office space at 40 Gresham St near the firm's current Moorgate home.

The new premises are said to incorporate opportunities for greater flexibility and more effective collaborative spaces. Announcing the move, David Cobb Co-Chief Executives at Smith & Williamson, said: “This is great news and is a significant milestone for our business that aligns fully with our long-term growth ambitions.

“The decision to relocate in London is one we have considered extremely carefully but after a rigorous assessment and having given careful consideration to the needs of both our people and our clients, our Board is confident it is the right one for the firm.”

Kevin Stopps, the other Co-Chief Executives, said: “Our new home on Gresham Street will provide a first-class experience for our clients and our people alike and ensures we will all benefit from a modern, sustainable working environment in the heart of the City of London for many years to come.”

 

Advisers

Smith & Williamson has appointed a professional team to advise on the project, which includes Perkins + Will (architects), Hoare Lea (engineers), Core 5 (quantity surveyors), Eversheds Sutherland (legal) and Cushman & Wakefield (project management).

Kevin Darvishi, Leasing Director at the developer for 40 Gresham St at Stanhope, said: “Gresham St Paul’s is a sustainable development which will provide a light and air-filled, state-of-the art working environment. The fantastic facilities within the building - including the Wi-Fi enabled café, reception and business lounge on the ground floor - will provide an enhanced occupier experience and further bolster the City of London’s reputation as a global centre.”
