KPMG purchases swish new offices in Canary Wharf

Big Four firm buys leasehold for £260m, and will consolidate staff from a number of London offices into a single location by 2009

KPMG has purchased a
999-year leashold on highly sought-after offices in Canary Wharf for £260m.

Canary Wharf Group plc
said today it will complete construction of the new building, 15 Canada Square,
by April 2009, ready for fitting out by KPMG.

The building at 15 Canada
Square
was designed by the international architectural firm KPF and will be
a 15-storey structure clad in high-efficiency, solar-control glass and
architectural metal. It will feature a full-height atrium space and the design
aims to create a ‘collaborative, networking, transparent and open working
environment’ for the staff.  

KPMG will consolidate staff from a number of London offices into the Canary
Wharf location while retaining its existing office at Salisbury Square, just off
Fleet Street in central London.

John Griffith-Jones, UK chairman and senior partner at KPMG LLP, said: ‘This
is an important step on the road to creating an office environment in London for
our people and our clients that is an expression of our core values, and
embraces the changing ways we will work together in the years ahead.’
