Slaughter and May is advising global real estate services firm JLL in connection with its new UK flagship office at 1 Broadgate. JLL has signed an agreement for lease with British Land for 134,000 sq. ft. on a 15-year term and will move into the flagship location following completion of 1 Broadgate in 2025. The new office will cover three floors and have its own dedicated entrance. The move demonstrates JLL’s conviction that modern, high quality and sustainable office space has an important role to play in promoting innovation, collaboration, training and culture.
JLL’s decision to be based at 1 Broadgate reflects its clear ambition to be a net zero carbon business. The building will be the most energy efficient the landlord has ever delivered, targeting a base build operational efficiency of c.55 kWheq per m2, already ahead of the its 2030 energy intensity targets for new developments. The building will target a BREEAM Outstanding rating, as well as the WELL Platinum rating for wellbeing to achieve industry leading standards for air quality, water and light, and will be designed to support employee engagement and productivity. It will also be SMART enabled to analyse and optimise operational performance.
