Helical plc is a leading UK listed property company.
We advised on the acquisition of a major site at St Barts Square, EC1, close to St Paul’s, which received consent in May 2013 for 420,000 sq ft of offices, residential and retail, delivered in late 2018.
We are letting agents for the office element of the scheme comprising three buildings – One Bartholomew Close (212,850 sq ft), 90 Bartholomew Close (23,670 sq ft) and 55 Bartholomew Close (10,976 sq ft). One Bartholomew Close and 90 Bartholomew Close are fully let.
We subsequently disposed of the freehold interest in 90 Bartholomew Close in April 2020 to La Francaise for £48.50 million.
We advised on the assembly of a site at Creechurch Place, EC3, to provide a new 280,000 sq ft office building. This involved the restructuring of a number of interests. We advised on the funding of the scheme which was carried out through a joint venture with Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP) of Canada. We were letting agents for the scheme which was fully let in 2019.
