Iconic London Offices: Building Business Hubs – The Gherkin
LondonOffices.com, a leading resource for renting serviced office space in London shines a light on one of the city’s most famous buildings: 30 St Mary Axe, otherwise known as The Gherkin.
As one of the financial capitals of the world, there are a wide variety of premier serviced offices in London, catering to large and small businesses from every industry. Amongst the most famous office buildings in the modern London skyline is 30 St Mary Axe, more commonly known as The Gherkin.
This iconic skyscraper at the heart of the London financial district is, in truth, much more than just an office building, including an exclusive restaurant with spectacular panoramic views of this most famous city. It is also home to Jeff Randall Live, the flagship Sky News business program, which broadcasts from a studio in the building.
Previously known as the Swiss Re Building, The Gherkin was completed in 2003 and its doors opened at the end of May 2004. It has 41 floors and a tower that measures in at 180m. It replaced the Baltic Exchange building, and has become one of the most widely recognised triumphs of modern architecture.
When 30 St Mary Axe was purchased by investment firm Evans Randall and IVG Immobilien AG, in a joint bid of £630 million, it became the most expensive office property in Great Britain.
Commercial office buildings such as The Gherkin are integral to the office market in London as they create a focal point for business activity, even if the individual businessisn’t actually located in the building itself.
In the case of The Gherkin however, serviced office space can be rented within its curved exterior as two dedicated business centres operate from the building. But for those businesses looking for something less hi-profile and lower on rental scale, enjoying a view of The Gherkin rather than from it, dozens of business centresare located around the iconic structure.
Many businesses enter serviced office space in London in order to benefit from close proximity with the major players in their industry. Prestigious commercial districts within the city always boast fantastic transport links.
Businesses which take residence in 30 St Mary Axe (or individuals willing to pay for membership at a cost of £1,000 per year) can take advantage of more than the office facilities within the building; they are also granted access to the exclusive bar and restaurant within its top two floors. 38 luxurious private dining rooms are available to hire Monday to Friday but demand is always extremely high.
