ISG has been chosen to deliver a £70m deal to refurbish the former Canary Wharf offices of the Financial Conduct Authority, Building understands.

The firm pipped other high-profile contractors to the deal including Sir Robert McAlpine and Bam.

The City watchdog moved into its new London offices at Lendlease’s International Quarter London development at Stratford in July after more than 20 years at 25 North Colonnade (pictured).

The 15-storey building, which was bought by US private equity giant Blackstone four years ago, will now undergo a revamp designed by US practice Gensler. 

Work will involve recladding the lower levels and remodelling the building’s north and south reception areas.

Blackstone is also planning to develop a multi-use Market Hall idea across the lower halls for events and pop-up attractions.

The office is located next door to Foster + Partners’ Canary Wharf Crossrail station.

Letting agent Knight Frank is listing the property as being ready by late 2020.
