It’s a multi-let building and is comprised of 49,500 sq ft of office accommodation, from the basement to the seventh floor. It was the first time in 50 years that this coveted space has been available on the market and it was snapped up quickly by the de Walden Estate, which is currently diversifying its portfolio across the West End.
Another large West End deal saw Thor Equities’ acquisition of 1 Dover Street for £47.2m. The former hotel comprises approx.. 23,000 sq ft of prime retail and residential space, and is home to world-famous Mahiki nightclub.
In the City, 6 Bevis Marks was recently sold by Axa Investors and Blackrock to a private client for £220m. The development has been newly refurbished and is almost fully let. it represents a huge deal in the City market, especially considering the uncertainties in the investment market at the moment.
