Architect Kohn Pedersen Fox

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.[1] 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.[2] In May 2015, KanAm instructed CBRE and JLL to prepare the building for sale, with an asking price of £215m.[3]


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.[4] 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.[5] Five retail tenants make up the remainder of the building's tenants.

Prior to this, the building was occupied by London Underground Ltd.[6]
