Specialist institutional investor COREM IM continues to expand its UK portfolio with the acquisition of a core City of London office building on Great St Helens EC3 from Aberdeen Standard for c.£16m.

Current and future developments within this eastern cluster will create the highest density of employment in the Square Mile attracting major international and national occupiers to the area, and help the City of London to maintain its position as a major global financial centre. 

“With our experienced team, market penetration and ability to deploy capital quickly we aim to continue to expand our UK commercial investment portfolio over the coming months.”
