Canada Pension Plan Investment Board on £1bn development

Herbert Smith Freehills has advised Canada Pension Plan Investment Board on its £1bn Paradise Circus development in Birmingham with Hermes Investment Management.


The project is one of the largest redevelopments in the UK and will see the transformation of the strategically placed site in the centre of Birmingham. Herbert Smith Freehills advised on the corporate real estate, real estate, construction and tax aspects of the transaction including the joint venture arrangements, and associated development/asset management arrangements. The £150m first phase of the Paradise Circus development comprises 350,000 sq ft of speculative office development named One & Two Chamberlain square. This will form part of the redevelopment as a whole which, when complete, will comprise 1.8m sq ft of offices, shops, cafes, restaurants and a hotel in up to 10 buildings. This follows CPPIB's investment in the 50:50 joint venture with Hermes Real Estate for the redevelopment of Wellington Place, Leeds on which Herbert Smith Freehills also advised. This redevelopment envisages one of the biggest new city centre business quarters in Europe.  The team on both projects was led by real estate partners Nick Turner and Don Rowlands (Head of real estate, UK & EMEA) and senior associates Paul Chases and Will Turnbull. Involved fees earner: Nick Turner - Herbert Smith Freehills; Don Rowlands - Herbert Smith Freehills; Paul Chases - Herbert Smith Freehills; Will Turnbull - Herbert Smith Freehills;
