Heron appoints Savills for City tower mandate

HERON has appointed Savills as the leasing agent for the Heron Tower in the City as the company kicks off a new marketing campaign in May to lease the remaining floors of the skyscraper.

Savills has won the prized mandate after Heron decided last month to shake-up its leasing teams as part of a new drive to secure tenants for the building, which is 50 per cent let.

Cushman & Wakefield – one of the two incumbent agents alongside CBRE – was asked to re-pitch. Cushman will retain the management of the building.

City landlords have been hit by a lack in demand for office space, as firms put off committing to new space amid economic uncertainty.

The Heron, completed last year, is still looking to lease floors 2-8 and the top floors from 23-37.
