Aurum at 30 Lombard Street is an office building in the City of London EC3.

Grade A office building is set across 11 floors and benefits from column-free floor space and excellent natural light as a result of its corner location. The substantial roof terrace overlooks the 17th-century Wren church opposite and other iconic city buildings.

The building provides 58,000 sq ft of exceptional quality office space and has been designed to offer an attractive prospect to either a single occupier, looking for a core City and globally recognised address, or to a number of occupiers. It will provide regular floor plates over lower ground and nine upper floors and a large roof terrace.


2018 March - McKay exchanges contracts to let the entirety of its 58,000 sq ft speculative office development, Aurum, at 30 Lombard Street in the City of London. The high-quality office building was pre-let on a 15-year term (without breaks) to FTSE 100 wealth manager, St. James's Place plc. The contracted net rental income of £3.40m pa, equivalent to £65.00 per square foot, was agreed in line with ERV and includes five-yearly upward only rent reviews. The agreement was contingent on practical completion of the building in the summer, with St. James's Place then taking occupation in January 2019. Knight Frank and Savills acted on behalf of McKay while Doherty Baines acted for St. James's Place.

1999 - McKay Securities PLC acquired the long leasehold interest of the site in 1999 with a 36,000 sq ft 1960’s office building generating a rental income of £1.12m pa and a planning consent in place for 53,500 sq ft.
