Redwood worked with client Mitsui Fudosan UK Ltd (‘Mitsui Fudosan’) and development partner Stanhope Plc (‘Stanhope’) to announce the ‘topping-out’ of Angel Court, the partnership’s 300,000 sq ft office scheme in the heart of the City.
The announcement was issued by Redwood following a celebratory ceremony held onsite with the development and construction team. The event signals the last key construction landmark ahead of practical completion in December 2016.
Located in the heart of London’s financial district and next to the Bank of England, Angel Court is a short walk from a number of underground stations, including Liverpool Street which will be served by Crossrail from 2018. Once complete, the 24 storey tower will provide rare 360 degree uninterrupted views of the London skyline and will bring a much-needed range of floorplates to the City market, with large floorplates of up to 27,000 sq ft.
The scheme is set to rejuvenate and connect the surrounding streetscape by significantly expanding the existing public realm area. This will include the introduction of new retail outlets, restaurants, eateries and al fresco dining to the piazza for the first time.
Having prepared a detailed media strategy for the asset and closely advised Mitsui Fudosan since the commencement of construction, Redwood ensured that this important construction milestone was used to secure highly positive coverage in the trade press – both boosting Mitsui Fudosan’s wider company profile and supporting the overall lettings strategy at Angel Court itself.
