The City's iconic Cheesegrater has two new tenants, leaving just five floors available at the Leadenhall Building.

British Land and Oxford Properties, the developers behind the Cheesegrater (aka Leadenhall Building), today announced that global energy company Petredec and Fidelis Insurance were moving in.

Oil and gas company Petredec, which will use the office space for its European headquarters, has signed a 10-year lease to occupy 9,970 sq ft on 35th floor of the building.

Insurer Fidelis has also signed a 10-year lease to occupy 34th level, totalling 10,345 sq ft.

"Our strategy to lease the upper floors post-completion has been proved to be the right one, with nearly 200,000 sq ft let since last Summer, and the building achieving record rents for The City of London," Tim Roberts, head of offices at British Land, said.

"These lettings underline the Leadenhall Building's position as a London landmark in the heart of one of the world's pre-eminent financial centres."

Insurers Aon and Amlin have recently completed their phased moves into the building, joining six other companies that are already in the skyscraper, British Land said.
