In December 2013, Orion and Quadrant Estates announced the letting of the whole building to publishing firm, Hachette UK.
Graham Tyler, Director Quadrant Estates, said: “We are extremely proud of the quality of the building designed by Fletcher Priest Architects. This has been proven by the early letting to Hachette UK who will take possession of the building in May. We look forward to welcoming them to Carmelite Riverside.”

Orion Capital Managers and Quadrant Estates have announced the appointment of Morgan Sindall as building contractor on Carmelite Riverside, the 135,000 sq ft prime riverside office development at 50 Victoria Embankment. Work will start on the redevelopment immediately.
Tristram Gethin, Quadrant Estates said:
“This is a significant step forward and we can now get cracking on what is one of London’s most exciting and enviable office locations adjacent to the brand new Blackfriars station. The additional floor delivers more premium office space for occupiers and the 7,500 sq ft roof terrace provides one of the very best views in London. This is what sets Carmelite Riverside apart.”
Morgan Sindall will be responsible for the £25m construction of the redevelopment to Grade A standard, which offers river frontage and typical floor plates of 21,000 sq ft over eight floors. Carmelite Riverside will be completed and ready for occupation in April 2014. The redevelopment will include new cladding to optimise the building’s position and views.
Orion Capital Managers bought Carmelite House last July from Aberdeen Asset Management and entered into a joint venture agreement with Quadrant Estates, as development manager, to develop the building which is the former Daily Mail HQ.
Carmelite Riverside will attract occupiers looking for a Grade A building in a prime riverside location, particularly those from the West End, City and Midtown, where new Grade A stock is in limited supply.
Leasing agents for Carmelite Riverside are CBRE and Knight Frank. The architect is Fletcher Priest.
