International US law firm Skadden is to take on a 65,000 square foot office in one of London’s newest skyscrapers. The firm is to relocate its 250-strong London team from its current Canary Wharf office to 22 Bishopsgate late next year. The firm has agreed to a 15-year lease which will allow it to occupy the 38-40th floors of the building.
22 Bishopsgate, which was completed in December 2020, contains a restaurant and bar, public viewing gallery, food market, gym, and the city’s first “sky wall” climbing window at 125 metres above ground.
Since the UK government began to lift coronavirus restrictions, AXA IM Alts, the investment management company which developed the London skyscraper, has said it has seen a significant increase in occupier enquiries.
