28 August 2013 — CBRE has been appointed to manage London’s iconic Gherkin building by owners IVG and Evans Randall.

The building, formally known as 30 St Mary Axe, is a 48,000 square metre, 40-storey skyscraper in London’s main financial district, and is home to tenants Swiss Re, and other financial and professional services firms including US law firm Kirkland and Ellis, and tech company ION Trading.

CBRE will take responsibility for the day-to-day management and maintenance of the building, oversee all service procurement and liaise with the building’s 20 occupiers.

“This is unquestionably one of the world’s most recognisable buildings, and one that has become synonymous with the City of London,” said CBRE chairman of property and asset management UK David King.

“It is imperative that the Gherkin continues to deliver occupiers with the quality of space, service and experience befitting such an iconic building through the next phase of its life cycle. We are extremely proud that IVG and Evans Randall has entrusted the management of the building to CBRE, and look forward to working with them.”
