60/70 St Mary Axe, London

This was a single let investment to Barclays Bank Plc, purchased in 2001. The freehold interest included 40% of an Island site in the heart of the City of London. We planned and secured consent for the so-called “Can of Ham” office development of 300,000 sq ft NIA (Net Internal Area). This investment and development opportunity was sold in 2010, achieving 40% above the initial purchase price.
