Derwent London plc owns 84 buildings in a commercial real estate portfolio predominantly in central London valued at £5.4 billion (including joint ventures) as at 30 June 2019, making it the largest London-focused real estate investment trust (REIT). The Company's experienced team has a long track record of creating value throughout the property cycle by regenerating its buildings via development or refurbishment, effective asset management and capital recycling. The Company typically acquires central London properties off-market with low capital values and modest rents in improving locations, most of which are either in the West End or the Tech Belt. The Company capitalises on the unique qualities of each of its properties - taking a fresh approach to the regeneration of every building with a focus on anticipating tenant requirements and an emphasis on design. Reflecting and supporting the Company's long-term success, the business has a strong balance sheet with modest leverage, a robust income stream and flexible financing. Landmark schemes in the Company's 5.7 million sq ft portfolio include Brunel Building W2, White Collar Factory EC1, Angel Building EC1, 1-2 Stephen Street W1, Horseferry House SW1 and Tea Building E1. In 2019 to date, the Group has won the CoStar West End Deal of the Year for Brunel Building. In 2018, the Group won EG Offices Company of the Year, whilst White Collar Factory scooped RIBA National and London awards, RICS National and London awards, two BCO awards for Commercial Workplace and Innovation, an EG Creative Places award and an NLA Wellbeing award. 25 Savile Row also won RIBA National and London awards and SKA Gold for the fit-out. In 2013 the Company launched a voluntary Community Fund and has to date supported 89 community projects in Fitzrovia and the Tech Belt. The Company is a public limited company, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange and incorporated and domiciled in the UK. The address of its registered office is 25 Savile Row, London, W1S 2ER.
