Hermes Real Estate Investment Management Limited (HREIML) has agreed a new letting to Close Brothers at Wimbledon Bridge House, SW19.
Close Brothers will take just under 60,000 sq ft of space on a 15 year lease.
The tenancy will commence in January 2015 following extensive refurbishment work being carried out by HREIML in the final quarter of next year. The work will see the internal space reconfigured and updated to Grade A standard as well as a new entrance and reception area.
Other tenants at the offices located opposite Wimbledon rail and underground stations include Orbis Investment Advisory and Unibet (London) Ltd. The building also includes four retail units at ground and first floor level currently let to WH Smith, Waterstone’s, Next and Cargo HomeShop.
Christina Holland, asset manager at Hermes Real Estate Investment Management Limited, says: “Since taking ownership of Wimbledon Bridge House in 2010, we have actively sought to reconfigure the space to meet the needs of large, corporate occupiers looking for well-connected, prime office locations. We plan to carry out a rolling refurbishment of the building, starting with the entrance and space let to Close Brothers.”
