Commenting on the agreement, Richard Archer, head of leasing at the Canary Wharf Group, said: “BNY Mellon has been a highly valued tenant of Canary Wharf for over 13 years and we are delighted and it has agreed to extend its occupation at Canary Wharf. This is another vote of confidence in both Canary Wharf and London.”
