OBI Property represented the landlord of The Chancery, Aberdeen Asset Management and has also recently designed and project managed a refurbishment of the common areas of the building including the lifts, lift lobbies and toilets. 

Richard Lace, associate director, OBI Property said: “The letting to Sanderson Weatherall builds further momentum on the Atradius letting last year.  Our build team will soon be refurbishing the 7th floor which will provide 5,773 sq ft of space and given the quality of space, excellent location and competitive rent, we already have a number of other parties interested in relocating to the building.”
