The last available office space in the third International Finance Centre building currently under development has been taken by a commercial bank with operations in Jersey.
Butterfield has signed an agreement to lease 6,800 sqft (10%) of 'IFC 6', as the development is known.
The 68,000 sqft, Grade A office building will also include an extension to Trenton Square.
Lee Henry, CEO of the Jersey Development Company, commented: “We are delighted Butterfield will be joining the IFC upon completion and look forward to extending a warm welcome as they cement their presence in Jersey.
"This is the first time that a 100% office pre-let has been secured for an IFC office building prior to physical completion which demonstrates the continuing strong demand for modern, efficient and sustainable office accommodation in Jersey.”
Richard Saunders, Butterfield’s Managing Director of the Channel Islands and UK, commented: “We are pleased to have secured new premises which we look forward to moving into early next year.
"As our journey to provide banking services to local residents progresses, building on our experience of serving the corporate community here in Jersey, the new location on the ground floor offers modern and easy-access office space - a plus for both our clients and colleagues.”
