Angel Court Becomes First Tower To Complete In 2017
Mitsui Fudosan UK and Stanhope achieved practical completion on their new 300k SF Angel Court building in the heart of London’s financial district. The 24-storey office building is the first skyscraper to deliver in 2017.
Angel Court will provide approximately 20% of the Grade A space that will be delivered in the City this year.
Fletcher Priest Architects’ glass building towers over its neighbour, the 1820s Bank of England building, creating an intriguing mix of old and new. The design includes 27k SF floor plates across the building’s six lower ‘Garden’ floors, which comprise 140k SF of new Grade A accommodation and which benefit from large terraces and outdoor spaces. Across the building’s 18 upper ‘Sky’ floors, which provide 160k SF of further accommodation and offer floor plates of 8,750 SF, the design delivers panoramic views across the Bank conservation areas and uninterrupted 360-degree views of the London skyline.
Angel Court also boasts a high-quality and unique retail and dining offer, with new occupiers set to rejuvenate the surrounding streetscape.
The latest operator to sign for space at the scheme is a tandoori-style barbecue restaurant, temper, which has taken 5k SF on a 20-year lease. In October 2016, Mitsui Fudosan and Stanhope also confirmed deals with three new food and beverage occupiers. Modern Peruvian restaurant Coya signed for 4,500 SF of bar and restaurant space in the southernmost section of the scheme’s ground floor, whilst The Natural Kitchen completed a deal for 6k SF in the Copthall Avenue unit, across the building’s ground and lower floors. Specialty coffee, food and wine company Notes also signed for 1,500 SF to the south of the building’s reception. All three will open to the public in the spring.
Bisnow selected Angel Court to host our Future of Real Estate event on March 30; executives from British Land, Grosvenor and other London mainstays will talk about technology, design and sustainability. Register here.
