LONDON: Irvine Sellar is not a seller and the Shard is not up for sale

Calling card The Shard building Alex Lentati

 

Gerald Ronson has a deal in the offing to sell the City’s Heron Tower to the Chinese but will Irvine Sellar, the man behind the Shard, ever sell up?

“Never, ” Sellar tells Spy. “I don’t need to sell — why should I? The Shard is my calling card, ” he says.

He also reckons the building — after a slow start in the lettings market — will be full up by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, comedian Elf Lyons quipped: “If Corbyn had organised the list of top 1000 the bottom 500 would have been women.”
