Hogan Lovells advised The Crown Estate on its agreement with the New Zealand Government to refurbish New Zealand House.
The Grade-II listed building is situated in a prime location at the southern end of Haymarket. Designed by Robert Matthew, Johnson Marshall & Partners, New Zealand House is an iconic building and gained listed status in 1995.
The Crown Estate is a collection of lands and holdings in the territories of England, Wales and Northern Ireland within the United Kingdom belonging to the British monarch as a corporation sole, making it the “Sovereign’s public estate”, which is neither government property nor part of the monarch’s private estate.
The Hogan Lovells team, led by partner Dion Panambalana (Picture), devised and managed the process that lead to an exchange unusually early in the design stage which meant solutions needed to be found for complex issues like heritage protection and construction procurement.
