CPA was delighted to see so many members at the One Creechurch evening drinks reception on Wednesday 3 May.
One Creechurch Place, the newest development from Helical, is one of the latest additions for the vibrant insurance and financial market in central London. This office development offers 272,500 sq ft of high quality office space across 17 floors with impressive views across the City.
CPA members and guests were welcomed by Mark Ridley, CPA President and Commercial Director of Stanhope who provided an update on the organisation’s activities over the past few months and its upcoming events calendar. He highlighted the importance of these events to the industry, providing fantastic opportunities for networking and building new business contacts.
Mark then handed over to Gerald Kaye, Chief Executive of Helical, who was the evening’s keynote speaker. He provided an insight into the impressive design and construction of the One Creechurch, describing the development process from its design conception through to completion. He talked us through the ups and downs of this process, as well as the many design options they considered, before settling on the building you can see today.
Members were encouraged to look around the building and a brave few – taking no notice of the British weather – went out to enjoy the stunning views from the 15th storey balcony.
