A building containing City offices
and retail space has been acquired by a UK property company for £14.6 million.
Henderson Global Investors offloaded the asset at 80 Leadenhall Street on behalf of its Central London Office Fund. It offers 23,000 sq ft of space and is let to a number of tenants, including CMS Cameron McKenna, Hartford Financial and the National House Building Council.
CMS Cameron McKenna took a new ten-year lease last summer. Earlier this year, it pulled out of a deal with Hammerson to relocate to London offices
at Principal Place, EC2. The premises, which will offer 623,000 sq ft once constructed, was given planning permission the same week the law firm informed Hammerson of its decision.
At the time, senior partner at the law organisation Dick Tyler commented: "The firm's lease of Mitre House in Aldersgate Street expires in 2015 and we will explore our relocation requirements in London nearer the expiry date."
