Canadian company votes for City of London with two mega real estate deals pending

Canadian private equity giant Brookfield is set to buy City of London property Plantation Place for £ 635million – biggest office deal since Covid-19 changed the way people work and emptied the offices.

The deal is expected to end this week, the Sunday Times first reported, with Brookfield also in separate talks to buy Milton Gate, an office building on the outskirts of the city, for £ 215million.

However, working from home could be extended beyond June 21, according to reports, with the spread of the Indian variant posing a potential threat to the government’s roadmap.
