This development between Hays Galeria and the GLA building seems to be nearing completion. Does anyone know when it's due to be completed or who is going to move in?

Is the building you're mentioning the one on the riverside next to the Courthouse? - Ernst and Young will be occupying that in summer this year - it will be interesting to see what it does to local demand for sandwich bars and the like while most of Tooley St remains boarded up.

The most recently completed bit closer to Tooley Street has been only half let. See the latest corporate puff by the Developers below.

London 6 November 2002

The third building at More London was topped out today, marking the continued progress of the 13-acre, 2.9million sq ft riverfront development by Tower Bridge.

The milestone comes just three months after the Mayor and GLA moved into City Hall and five months after the topping out of Ernst & Young's new headquarters at More London.

Anchor tenant for the new building (currently known as building 6) in Autumn 2003 is Hewitt Bacon & Woodrow, the UK and Ireland business of Hewitt Associates, the global outsourcing and consulting firm. They will establish their new UK base at More London shortly after global business advisors Ernst & Young have also moved into the development.

Featuring a 120m long sunscreen constructed of anodised aluminium dowels covering its entire south elevation, the unusual triangular glazed building designed by Foster and Partners is destined to become a further striking feature of More London.

Approximately 96,000 sq ft remain to be let in the building which is being offered in floors of 24,000 sq ft.

On behalf of More London Development, Fergus Low, Managing Director, says:

"The progress of this building is a credit to the work of everyone involved from design through to construction by HBG. We look forward to welcoming Hewitt Bacon & Woodrow."
For Hewitt Bacon & Woodrow, John Oliver, Finance Director, says:

"More London is an exciting development and we are delighted to have the opportunity to be in on its start."
"Hewitt Bacon & Woodrow has undergone considerable change over the last year so the move to More London will be a reflection of our new beginning and of our plans for the future."
Structural and services engineers on the building are Arup, working with cost consultants EC Harris and Mott Green Wall.

Thanks Lang Rabbie

It seems as if this will be finished in the Summer, and as you say half of Tooley Street is boarded up, so I hope re-opening and opening of shops, pubs and restaurants won't be far behind. I hope it does all get let, so we get a supermarket in SE1 as part of it. A health club with a big swimming pool would also be good, along with a cool chillout bar and a small cinema ..... etc etc
