• £3.38 billion invested in central London commercial real estate in Q2 2014
• Q2 2014 West End deal volume reaches £929 million
• City & Docklands transactions amounted to £2.45 billion in Q2 2014
• Chinese investors accounted for more than 20% of City & Docklands transactions in H1 2014

Cushman & Wakefield, the world’s largest privately-owned real estate services firm, has revealed £3.38 billion worth of central London commercial property transactions took place in Q2 2014; this takes total H1 London investment to £7.6 billion.
The Q2 2014 figure is down on the £4.28 billion seen in the previous quarter, which was the highest level of Q1 central London investment ever recorded – but this number was significantly inflated by the £1.7 billion St Martins acquisition of More London.
Overseas capital once again dominated the bulk of transactions, with 75% of volume coming from international sources in Q2 2014.
Notably, more than a fifth of commercial property investment in the City & Docklands for the first half of this year was completed by Chinese investors.
