RPMI Railpen has today announced its acquisition of the freehold interest in Thames Wharf Studios, Hammersmith from London & Regional. The deal represents the first opportunity to purchase the entire complex and its associated freehold in nearly 40 years.

Commenting on the announcement, Anna Rule, Head of Property at RPMI Railpen, said:

“The Thames Wharf complex offers an attractive and compelling investment proposition. In addition, the site has received consent for further development adding to its long-term value and helping us to meet our mission to pay members’ pensions securely, affordably and sustainably.”

Thames Wharf is home to the world-renowned River Cafe restaurant which has recently renewed its commitment to the property via a long-term lease. Set on a one-acre site with rare frontage to the River Thames, the majority of the property comprises office accommodation which was previously occupied as the headquarters of Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners and has since been multi-let to a variety of office tenants.

Nightingale Partners represented the purchaser and Allsop LLP represented the vendor.
