BIRD & Bird has agreed to let the whole of Great Portland Estate’s 12-14 New Fetter Lane offices, the developer said yesterday, scoring its largest pre-let to date. The law firm will pay an initial rent of £8.3m a year to lease the 12-storey building near Holborn. Great Portland and its partner, City of London Corporation, said the site is due to be completed in 2015.
