1 July 2015

Land Securities has let almost 25,000 sq ft at 62 Buckingham Gate, SW1, to the fast-growing financial technology company WorldRemit.

The transaction, which will see WorldRemit move its UK headquarters into the building’s second floor, takes 62 Buckingham Gate to 78% let.

62 Buckingham Gate is already home to a number of leading international businesses including Rolls Royce, World Fuel Services, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and OMV, and at ground-floor level the building hosts independent cinema chain Curzon, and new food outlets Benugo and Leon.

Kaela Fenn-Smith, Head of Commercial at Land Securities, said: “We’re really pleased to welcome WorldRemit to 62 Buckingham Gate. With its ever-growing list of amenities, and flexible and resilient office space, Victoria is a great place for a dynamic and innovative company like WorldRemit to do business.”

WorldRemit founder and CEO Ismail Ahmed said: “There is an amazing buzz around Victoria right now, especially among tech companies. 62 Buckingham Gate was the obvious choice for WorldRemit’s new home – it is the jewel in the crown of this increasingly vibrant area.”
