Smart, the fintech company, has signed a lease for OneThreeSix as its six-floor global HQ.

Native Land has let 136 George Street, which will be to be known as The Smart Building, in a 15-year lease.

OneThreeSix is one of the first all-electric powered office buildings in central London, which will be operationally carbon zero from day one of occupation, with electricity from renewable sources.

The six-storey building is WiredScore 'Gold' Certified, targeting BREEAM "Excellent" and WELL ready status.

Smart will relocate from its current offices in Paddington, ensuring its 340 strong London based workforce remains in the capital.
