The Shell Centre on the South Bank of the Thames is set for a £300 million redevelopment.

The building will be redeveloped by the Canary Wharf Group and Qatari Diar and follows an agreement made with Shell International Limited.

Shell International Limited will relocate 1,700 staff to Canary Wharf and The Strand whilst the building work are in process.

"This is a great step forward and represents considerable reinvestment in the South Bank," Graham van't Hoff, Chairman, Shell UK said.

"Shell Centre is our long-term home in London and we're keen to start working with Canary Wharf Group, Qatari Diar and local stakeholders to develop and deliver a project that will benefit both London and the local community."
