We are active in Europe and the Middle East across all of our businesses. We entered the European commercial real estate market in 2003 with an initial investment in London’s Canary Wharf Estate and completed, with a partner, the acquisition of 100 percent of the property in early 2015. In the same year, we acquired Potsdamer Platz, a premier portfolio of retail, commercial, residential, leisure and hotel properties in central Berlin that is occupied by 160 local and international companies. Our real estate business is also active in the Middle East, with construction having begun in 2016 on a 1.5-million-square-foot office tower in Dubai we are developing with a partner.
Our infrastructure portfolio in Europe consists of 7,000 multi-purpose communications towers and active rooftop sites, as well as 5,000 km of fiber backbone in France. Our European renewable power portfolio comprises 23 operating wind facilities, 2 pumped storage facilities and a 1300-megawatt development pipeline across Ireland, the U.K. and Portugal. Our Private Equity operations include road fuel distribution and marketing in the U.K. and Ireland and construction services in the U.K. and Middle East.
