In March 2017, we provided a £450M development loan to the Canary Wharf Group to fund its office development at 1 & 5 Bank Street. This was believed to be the largest development financing to complete following the triggering of Article 50. We funded 75% of the loan with Qatar Investment Authority (‘QIA’) providing the remaining 25%.
1 & 5 Bank Street is a 715,000 sq ft commercial scheme offering high-quality office space with three levels of trading floors, a retail unit at ground level and public access to a new promenade along the South Dock. Upon completion in early 2019, the development, designed by world-renowned architects Kohn Pedersen Fox, will be one of just a handful of buildings to achieve an ‘outstanding’ BREEAM environmental and sustainability rating. The 27-storey building is already 40% pre-let to Société Générale.
