Its stable of titles will be entirely relocated to its neighbouring Thomas More Square base, in east London.



In a statement, the company said "current market conditions" led to a decision "not to proceed with re-modelling the Wapping site".



It said: "News International today announces it is putting its Wapping site up for sale.



"The decision to sell the 15-acre site follows a review of News International's London property portfolio.



"The majority of News International's Wapping-based editorial and commercial staff have now relocated into Thomas More Square, with the remainder to be relocated by the end of 2011.



"As a result, and in light of current market conditions, News International has decided not to proceed with re-modelling the Wapping site."
