Slaughter and May is advising Derwent London - pre-letting of The White Chapel Building, E1

Slaughter and May is advising Derwent London on the pre-let of the top two floors at The White Chapel Building, London E1 to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. The premises will be occupied by the Government Digital Service (“GDS”) on a ten-year lease at an annual rent of £2.8 million. We also advised on the four previous pre-lets of the Building.

John Burns, Chief Executive Officer of Derwent London, commented:

“The arrival of GDS is another great addition to The White Chapel Building which now hosts an exciting mix of occupiers across the tech and professional services sector. The spread of activities and commitment endorses our strategy of creating a mid-market rental product in this significantly improved area on the eastern side of the City and the Tech Belt.”
