The building, located directly opposite Lloyd's, is still under construction and is scheduled to be finished by mid-2014. The 736ft building will be one of the tallest buildings in London.

"We are delighted that Amlin has chosen The Leadenhall Building for its new offices" said British Land's Head of Offices Tim Roberts.

"This will be our second major pre-letting at the building and it shows the considerable appeal of our offer - highly specified and well located buildings of strong architectural quality coupled with a commitment to occupier service."
