British Land appoints SRM and William Hare for next Broadgate project

Posted on by in News

Developer British Land, has appointed Sir Robert McAlpine (SRM) as main contractor and William Hare as steel contractor for 2 Finsbury Avenue (2FA), the next phase of the Broadgate redevelopment in the City of London.

The appointment follows work undertaken by SRM in delivering 100 Liverpool Street and 1 Broadgate, extending the longstanding partnership with British Land.

Reaching a height of 170m, and due to be completed in 2027, 2FA will be an iconic addition to the capital’s skyline. The steel-framed building will boast a 21-storey West office tower and 36-storey East office tower, characterised by triangular patterns combining a solid and glazed sawtooth-shaped façade that supports double height spaces.

The towers will be linked by both a 12-storey podium and a single-story winter garden at level 13.

According to British Land, 2FA will raise the bar in its sustainability strategy. It will be all-electric, and a smart-enabled development ensuring leading carbon and energy efficiency in operation, as well as BREEAM ‘Outstanding’, WELL Platinum, WIRED Platinum, Nabers 5-star and EPC ‘A’ accreditations.

Simon Carter, CEO at British Land, said: “2FA is an incredibly exciting scheme that will transform the London skyline with a unique dual tower design. It will be delivered into a supply-constrained market in 2027, and this landmark pre-let is further proof of the strong demand for the modern, sustainable office space at our well-connected, amenity-rich London campuses. We look forward to welcoming Citadel and Citadel Securities to their new London home at 2FA.”
