Wells Fargo & Co., the world’s largest bank by market value, is close to a deal to lease an office building being constructed near the Bank of England in the City of London financial district, a person with knowledge of the matter said, asking not to be identified because the talks are private.

The 33 Central building will have a rooftop garden with views of the River Thames when it’s completed by Slovak developer HB Reavis Group. The property, due to be finished in the first quarter of next year, will have 225,000 square feet (20,900 square meters) of space, according to the property’s website. HB Reavis declined to comment.
