March is proving to be a particularly busy month for Newton Perkins. The letting of the 6th floor at 6 Gracechurch Street for USS has been followed by success in placing 16,000 sq ft at 155 Fenchurch Street "under offer" for new clients Trinova Real Estate (opposite Canary Wharf/Land Securities' 680,000 sq ft 20 Fenchurch Street Tower aka the "Walkie Talkie").

Acting for Australian communications company, Telstra, Newton Perkins has let their surplus accommodation in 50/52 Paul Street, EC2.

TMT occupiers were the CIty's fastest growing demand sector in 2011 accounting for 17% of the total 5.3 million sq ft of City office take-up.
