Capco’s strategy is to drive long-term value creation through planning, land assembly, land enablement and selective development activities on its investments at Earls Court.
Capco’s investments at Earls Court principally comprise:
- 63 per cent interest in ECPL: the investment vehicle with TfL. Capco’s interests in ECPL were valued at £460.7 million at 31 December 2018. ECPL land has detailed planning consent for 3.4 million square feet (GEA).
- 50 per cent interest in the Lillie Square joint venture, with Capco’s 50 per cent interest valued at £159.1 million at 31 December 2018.
In addition, in 2013, Capco exercised its option under the Conditional Land Sale Agreement (“CLSA”), a binding agreement in relation to the West Kensington and Gibbs Green Estates (“The Estates”). To date, Capco has paid £90 million of the £105 million cash consideration payable to LBHF including four of the five annual instalments of £15 million.
