LONDON-One of the biggest pre-lettings of the year has enabled Taylor Woodrow to push the start button on its 180,000-sf K2 office scheme at St Katherine’s Dock on the City’s eastern fringe. Mercer, a subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan, has agreed a 25-year lease on 147,713 sf on levels 1 to 6 of the building with an option to occupy a further 23,164 sf on level 7.

Demolition of an existing building on the site, Europe House, will commence later this month, followed by a 20-month construction programme from January 2003. Completion is expected in late 2004. The Richard Rogers-designed building is a seven-storey glass and steel “U” shape with a full height atrium.

Martin Jepson, TW’s Regional Director for Central London said: “Today’s announcement represents a major boost for the City property market and confirms that, despite slower conditions, there is still a demand for world-class buildings.”
