London office building Heron Tower gets new tenant and new name


One of the City of London’s most recognisable office buildings has been given a new name.

San Francisco-based has agreed to lease six floors of London office space at Heron Tower, which holds the honour of being the tallest building in the district. As a result of the deal, the property’s name will change to Salesforce Tower.

Salesforce has signed a 15-year lease for 50,000 sq ft of office space and is now the single largest tenant in the building.

Heron Tower was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and completed in 2011. However, following its completion, it initially struggled to attract tenants. But with the Salesforce deal, 90 per cent of the property’s space is occupied, or a lease has already been agreed on it.

The developer of the property, Heron International, commented on the decision to rebrand Heron Tower.

It stated: “We set out to create an iconic building that would set new standards for innovation and quality in commercial office space attracting the finest international organisations. We are delighted that this concept has been fully embraced by and to have reached an agreement with them to rename the building Salesforce Tower London to reflect their status as the building’s largest occupier.”
