The property market is watching the return to work. A 37-storey skyscraper in the heart of the City is being put up for sale for 1.8 billion pounds ($3.3 billion), according to the London Telegraph. The price tag – a record for a London office building – will be a test of investor appetite for offices following the pandemic.
Returning bankers are also being welcomed by city administrators.
City centre “ecosystems rely upon footfall”, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said in an interview on Bloomberg Television on Tuesday. “I’m hoping over the course of the next few weeks and months people will start returning back to the city.”
The Guardian earlier reported that more Goldman bankers were returning to the office in London.
