Exclusive: Clifford Chance office space for sale
12 October 2012
is seeking to let out a huge chunk of its London headquarters building, and to share the use of its swimming pool and staff restaurant with the lucky tenant.
The firm's agent CBRE has launched a website
to try to flog off some of the acres of office space at the Docklands skyscaper. CC has always let out a chunk of its space: Mastercard has a floor, and LOCOG has a few although that's winding down now the Olympics are over. But it now seems to be letting half of the building: 16 floors
are up for grabs.
According to the website, the new tenant will get to share the firm's prized restaurant, gym, squash courts, treatment rooms and swimming pool
. The sight of CC partners slipping walrus-like through the water as they ponder the day's problems may in future be enjoyed by a wider audience.

A spokeswoman for the firm said that the building was currently almost completely full but some space would be coming up over the next couple of years. She added that "it has always been our policy to market excess space
". She said that while new tenants might be allowed to use the facilities that would be subject to discussion.
