British Land has let the top floor of 100 Liverpool Street to Hudson River Trading, an innovative, fast-growing trading business, taking the office space at the building to be fully let. Hudson River Trading has signed an agreement to lease 20,300 sq ft on level ten of 100 Liverpool Street, on a ten-year term. The deal follows a series of recent lettings at Broadgate, including 254,000 sq ft to Allen & Overy and 129,000 sq ft to JLL at 1 Broadgate, effectively fully pre-letting the building four years ahead of completion.
100 Liverpool Street offers some of the highest quality, most sustainable mixed-use space in London. The building comprises 440,000 sq ft of state-of-the-art office space, including Storey, British Land’s flexible workspace brand, and 90,000 sq ft of new shops and restaurants set over three floors in addition to 20,000 sq ft of outdoor terraces on five levels.
100 Liverpool Street is British Land’s first net zero carbon development and one of the first in London to be net zero carbon at completion in November 2020. It is also one of the first major developments in the UK with a secure, converged network and smart-enabled infrastructure that collects real-time data to ultimately improve operational efficiency and user experience. The building recently received a BREEAM Outstanding rating and WELL Gold certification.
Hudson River Trading will use 100 Liverpool Street as its new London headquarters and will benefit from sole use of the level ten landscaped roof terrace. The company will join other leading international companies within the building including corporate finance advisory firm Peel Hunt, Japan’s Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation Europe, Bank of Montreal and law firm Milbank.
100 Liverpool Street is located at Broadgate, one of British Land’s London campuses, which benefit from excellent locations, proximity to key transport links, high-quality green spaces and amenities as well as appealing to a diverse mix of office occupiers.
British Land and GIC are investing £1.5 billion over 10 years to transform Broadgate into a world-class destination for London. The campus hosts many of the world’s leading financial, legal, technology and media companies, alongside some of London’s best restaurants, bars and retail including 90,000 sq ft of premium brands at 100 Liverpool Street. It is also home to four public squares, including a new 1.5 acre park in Exchange Square which will quadruple the amount of green space at Broadgate.
