Ludgate London is located on Ludgate Hill close to St. Paul’s Cathedral and the new Crossrail interchange at Farringdon Station. The Property comprises ground floor retail space and five upper floors of office accommodation, benefitting from dual entrances from Ludgate Hill and New Bridge Street.

Although providing large efficient office floor plates benefitting from excellent levels of natural light, the Property was in desperate need of repair and modernisation. However the opportunity arose to agree the early surrender of Goldman Sach’s occupational lease, secure vacant possession, and undertake a major refurbishment and repositioning.


Greycoat oversaw the purchase of the asset, carrying out property, corporate, financial and legal due diligence. Working with the incumbent Professional Team led by John Robertson Architects, Greycoat refined the existing consented scheme to deliver newly refurbished office floors with new all-electric building services, stunning new rooftop terraces, two new entrances, and new end-of-trip facilities.


During construction Greycoat implemented a thorough pre-leasing campaign and secured new leases on 95% of the Property to Intermediate Capital Group and Crowe UK prior to achieving Practical Completion.

This facilitated the pre-sale of the asset in April 2020 to Union, triggered upon completion of the project, which was achieved during the challenging conditions of the first COVID lockdown.
