Helical Bar on the cusp of growth

Property group Helical Bar said yesterday its rental income rose seven per cent to £24.5m in the year to the end of March, while its net gains on investment properties came in at £4.4m. The firm also said its 200 Aldersgate Street project is now 90 per cent let, and its Brickfields venture will be sold to Aviva in August. “After a challenging five years, I believe we are on the cusp of returning to delivering outperformance,” said chairman Nigel McNair Scott.
