Islamic finance awards 2013: King's Reach Tower financing

Best real estate deal
Lead managers:
ABC International Bank, Jadwa, Mohammed Al Subeai & Sons Investment Co The financing for the redevelopment of King’s Reach Tower in Southwark, London, was the most notable cross-border Islamic real estate transaction in 2012. Financing involved a senior £100 million ($160.6 million) facility and a £145 million mezzanine tranche.

This is a refurbishment on an unfamiliar scale: it includes adding six storeys to the tower, which has been empty since 2007.
