Three new companies have taken up office space at The Shard, meaning western Europe’s tallest building is now more than 90% occupied.

Tukcorp, Duff & Phelps and a FTSE 100 company have signed leases for 1,900sq m on level 13.

The first company, a subsidiary of Australian gambling and entertaining group Tabcorp Holdings, has taken 652sq m.

Valuation and corporate finance advisor Duff & Phelps, which already occupies 2,663sq m on level 14, has added 422sq m on level 13, making The Shard its biggest European base.

In a separate deal, a FTSE 100 company has signed up for 822sq m. The name of the organisation has yet to be disclosed.

Rents on all three deals are over £75 per sq ft.

Less than 10% of office space remains available in the building.
