British Land has announced today that it has let the first floor of Marble Arch House, W1, to Cirrus Logic, a provider of analogue and digital signal processing equipment.
LONDON, 2015-11-6 — /EPR Retail News/ — Earlier this year British Land completed deals with private investor BXR Partners LLP and global gaming technology company GTECH to occupy the building’s fourth and second floors respectively. They joined Fulcrum Asset Management, the first occupier to sign at the redeveloped building in May 2014, alongside industrial group Access Industries and NERA Economic Consulting.
British Land entered into an agreement with The Portman Estate to purchase and redevelop Marble Arch House in 2011. The scheme, designed by Bennetts Associates Architects, comprises 61,200 sq ft of office space and 15,000 sq ft of retail space. It is adjacent to ten luxury residential apartments built behind the retained period Victorian facade of 62-64 Seymour Street.
James Danby, Head of Office Leasing at British Land, said: “Marble Arch House provides high quality office space and is located in the heart of the West End. It has successfully attracted a diverse mix of companies, and we are very pleased to have secured another high calibre occupier in Cirrus Logic.”
CBRE and Cushman & Wakefield advised British Land. Bond Woodhouse advised Cirrus Logic.
