Deliveroo has also recently set up its European headquarters in the former LIFFE building on Cannon Street.
Riverside Capital is now raising £27.5 million equity from it’s qualifying private investors to complete the acquisition, with the minimum investment available being £25,000.
Dominic Wright, Group Chief Executive, said: “The City of London is being transformed by a new dynamic. No longer the domain of all things banking, you now find tech giants, shared working spaces, five-star hotels and a retail offering to rival London’s West End. With the growing fintech sector bolstering occupier demand and new developments providing global appeal, we believe that the prime location, in addition to the high quality of the building and outstanding connectivity, will provide levers for strong performance.”

The property has performed exceptionally well for our client since their acquisition in 2014, and benefitted from the continuing and exciting transformation of Cannon Street.”
