BSI Tower to be purchased in a joint venture between Canmoor and Harbert.

The Carlyle Group are selling the BSI Tower office building in Thames, London.

The London office tower covers 140,000 square feet and has been acquired by private equity investors Harbert and property developer and asset management company Canmoor for around £29 million.

The deal is a slight departure for Canmoor as they usually focus on industrial and asset development. However, it has acquired office space in the past when it formed joint ventures with Korine Property Partners to buy 100,000 square feet in Aldwych House located in a business park in Denham.

The London office tower, BSI is currently being leased out to management and business improvement systems company BSI Management Systems. The Carlyle Group are  currently leasing the space for around £22 square feet on a contract that expires in five year’s time.

This is not the first joint venture between Harbert and Canmoor as they have acquired 2.1 million square feet of space over four multi-let industrial estates from SEGRO 18 months ago.
