The Group marked its re-entry into the London real estate market when MTD Capital submitted a bid for the One Crown Place site, London EC2 in April 2013.

The purchase was completed in June.

Located in one of London’s fast growing market areas, the Group’s vision for this strategic and landmark property was for a mixed use scheme, even though the site came with full planning consent for a grade A office scheme.
