Description of Fen Court

Fen Court is a new 420,000 sq ft 15-storey office development in London EC3.

The scheme will provide ca 420,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over 13 floors, ca 27,000 sq ft retail space at the lower levels, a public passageway at street level and a publicly accessible roof garden.

Greycoat Core, a joint venture company set up by Thornton's Greycoat and Strickland's Core, was chosen ahead of a stellar field of developers. The site at 116-120 Fenchurch Street and 10-14 Fenchurch Avenue was granted consent in September 2008 for around 400,000 sq ft of office-based space in a 15-storey tower.

Generali controls the site through a mix of freeholds and leaseholds in a vehicle called Saxon Land, which it formed with Australian fund manager Babcock & Brown a decade ago. When Babcock & Brown collapsed in March 2009, Generali bought its stake out and sought a development manager.

Greycoat is acting as Development Manager on behalf of Generali, completing the site assembly, achieving a full planning consent, resolving third party matters, and negotiating a new Headlease and Development Agreement with the Clothworkers’ Company.

The building was pre-let to M&G for its new City of London HQ.

Completion to shell and core is scheduled for Q4 2017.

Generali Real Estate S.p.A. has just announced the practical completion of Fen Court, the 40,000 sq mt, 16 storey office and retail development that includes 10 Fenchurch Avenue, One Fen Court and 120 Fenchurch Street.

Generali Real Estate was supported by development managers CORE & Greycoat to create a building that, combining office and retail space, a roof-top restaurant and new areas of public realm, is well placed to become a new civic and commercial focal point for the City of London.
Designed in three distinct sections, the iconic building has a two-storey base and a new public passageway lined with retail frontages; a main body with nine storeys of offices, and an additional fully glazed “crown” element providing four floors of offices and a restaurant which has been let to D&D London.

The attractiveness of Fen Court’s state of the art office accommodation was proven well before delivery, with a pre-let of 30,000 sq mt to M&G Investments and another 3,000 sq mt to Argo Global.

On the roof of the building, ‘The Garden at 120’ will become the City’s largest roof top space open to the public when it is inaugurated later this year. Visitors will be able to enjoy a perimeter walk that gives vistas of London’s skyline.

Located on a main thoroughfare in the Eastern tower cluster of the City of London, Fen Court sits in an area of narrow pedestrian streets which have characterised the street plan for centuries. One of these has been creatively transformed into a generous public passageway, leading passers-by through the middle of the site where a stunning piece of public art has been installed. Inspired by the presence of the roof garden above, the artwork for the digital camera obscura-like soffit screen has been created by award-winning artists Vong Phaophanit and Claire Oboussier.

Fen Court pursued the highest standards of environmental sustainability for a major office development, achieving a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’ for shell and core construction.

Tina Paillet, Senior Executive at Generali Real Estate, commented: “It is a pleasure for Generali Real Estate to announce the completion of Fen Court, an innovative development where new technologies blend with tradition and nature to create a unique office and retail environment that will benefit both occupiers and visitors. With its faceted facades displaying a range of colours, the building is recognisable at a glance and is destined to become a City of London landmark.

The public realm amenities - with a new passageway through the building hosting a digital art space as well as a rejuvenated Fencourt, and at rooftop level, a large 360° panoramic viewing garden - make this development a truly modern office building with a strong sense of place.”
