30 South Colonnade is a commercial building in Canary Wharf, London. It occupies the FC-6 plot from the original Canary Wharf plans. Kohn Pedersen Fox were appointed as architect and the building was completed in 1991. It is 62 metres (203 ft) tall, with a total of 13 floors - a lower ground floor, ground floor, mezzanine level and 10 upper floors.
Canary Wharf Group sold the building for £200m to German fund manager KanAm Grund in December 2005. In May 2015, KanAm instructed CBRE and JLL to prepare the building for sale, with an asking price of £215m.
Reuters agreed to lease the majority of the building in 2005, their lease currently runs to May 2020. The building serves as Thomson Reuters Corporation's European headquarters. As part of Reuters' relocation, Perkins + Will carried out extensive refurbishment of the building, including installing a 100 metre long ticker around the building to display news and stock prices. Five retail tenants make up the remainder of the building's tenants.
