Independent UK law firm Burges Salmon has advised Tristan Capital Partners, a real estate investment management boutique and a recognised leader in the European market, on a £47 million loan to support the refinancing of a 127,000 sq. ft. BREEAM excellent-rated office asset, part of the Westfield shopping centre, located in Stratford, East London. Finance was arranged by Leumi UK who provided a £30 million loan to Core Plus Fund CCP IV – advised by Tristan Capital Partners – with a further £17 million of mezzanine debt provided by Delancey Real Estate via its dedicated credit fund.

The Burges Salmon team advising Tristan Capital Partners was led by partner Katie Allen and senior associate Christopher Herford, from the firm’s Banking and Finance team. Katie comments: “It has been a pleasure to work with Tristan Capital Partners on this significant refinancing which highlights the attractiveness in the market for high-quality, sustainable, London office space. Our Banking and Finance capabilities, coupled with our track record advising clients in the Built Environment sector, meant we were well placed to guide Tristan Capital Partners through this transaction.”

Sam Harmon, director at Tristan Capital Partners, says: “We needed to choose a lender with a long-term outlook and expert knowledge of the sector – a brief that Leumi UK and Delancey matched. Their teams’ expertise, combined with their collaborative approach, has been instrumental in this partnership. We remain confident in the performance of high-class office assets in Stratford, an area which remains popular among businesses given its excellent connections and competitive rents. We also want to thank the Burges Salmon team for their excellent and thorough advice.”
