In brief: Swiss Re opens London headquarters

Reinsurance company Swiss Re opened its skyscraper London headquarters at 30 St Mary Axe this week. The 180m tower, designed by Lord Foster, has been lauded for its energy efficient technology and earned the tag "erotic gherkin" for its curved glass and steel shape. The company will occupy around half of the 20,400 sq m with approximately 800 employees. Other tenants for the building have yet to be signed.
