Al Jazeera eyes new London home

by Chris Newbould on Jun 7, 2012




Qatar-based broadcaster Al Jazeera is in advanced talks to move into London's Shard skyscraper, the tallest tower in western Europe, a source close to the deal told Reuters.

The 95-storey Renzo Piano-designed glass tower, with views across London's financial district and the landmark St Paul's Cathedral, has so far failed to sign an office tenant as companies shelve moves due to the turmoil in the euro zone.

The Shard is being developed by London-based entrepreneur Irvine Sellar and funded by the state of Qatar.

"This is obviously related to the Qatar link. The views across London would be an amazing backdrop to its TV shows," the source said on condition of anonymity.
