Duchy lets third floor of Wellington House

The Duchy of Lancaster has successfully let the third floor of its prime central London office development, Wellington House.

The letting is to a strategic communications and reputation management company and sees them taking 5,553 sq ft of space on a ten-year lease at a headline rent of £55 per sq ft.

Located on the corner of Lancaster Place and the Strand, Wellington House has undergone an extensive £9m refurbishment offering some 38,000 sq ft of Grade A office space. The refurbishment was completed in December 2012.

This letting means that five floors are now occupied with only the first and second floors, totalling some 11,000 sq ft, available.

Chief executive officer of the Duchy of Lancaster, Nathan Thompson, said: “The completion of yet another letting shortly after completion is testament to the quality of refurbishment and location of the building. We look forward to welcoming further tenants in the near future.”

Spanning seven floors, Wellington House includes a new roof terrace which enjoys stunning views of the River Thames and London skyline. Refurbished to the highest specification, the building also includes a remodelled and extended reception area and flexible office space with floors ranging from 3,880 – 5,568 sq ft.

Bounded by the Strand and Victoria Embankment but not including the Savoy Hotel, the buildings on this estate are mainly let as shops and offices.
