New Instruction – 33 Gracechurch Street, EC3
Newton Perkins has been instructed alongside Allsop as joint letting agents at 33 Gracechurch Street, EC3.
33 Gracechurch Street is a prominent located Grade ‘A’ office building totalling just over 100,000 sq ft, occupying an imposing site on the western side of Gracechurch Street, at its junction with Lombard Street.
The Grade II listed north and north-eastern element of the façade was originally built in 1868 and was combined with a new modern façade to the south in the late 1970s to form a single building with contiguous floorplates and a new entrance to Gracechurch Street. A further redevelopment in 2007 further extended the building to provide an additional floor.
The double-height reception was entirely remodelled to a contemporary design by Morey Smith Architects in 2012 and now provides a striking entry point to the building.
We will shortly be launching the 4th and 1st floors totalling 14,348 sq ft and 15,351 sq ft respectively.
Deal done at Walkie Talkie!
We are delighted to announce the letting of the 5th floor south offices (7,987 sq ft) at 20 Fenchurch Street EC3 (aka the Walkie Talkie!) to Ocorian Limited, a global corporate solutions firm specialising in fund, corporate, capital market and private client services.

6th Floor 15,284 sq ft
5th North 5,855 sq ft
*The 6th floor can be split from 4,000 sq ft upwards.
