Landsec appoints McLaren for major Victoria office refurb job
Developer Landsec has appointed McLaren Construction to refurbish Thirty High, a 27,800m2 tower in Victoria, London, into a Grade A office block.
The scheme will provide a communal rooftop clubroom restaurant and terrace on the 29th and 30th floors with panoramic views across London, a multi-functional event space, bookable meeting and short-term project rooms alongside best-in-class shower facilities and bike storage.
By retaining the existing building structure, Landsec said it will achieve a 60% reduction in embodied carbon compared to the current Greater London Authority benchmark. The building will be fully electric and powered by air source heat pumps, with all energy derived from fully renewable sources.
Oliver Knight, Head of Workplace at Landsec said: “At a time when other developers are pulling back from committing to new projects, we’re bringing forward much needed space to a supply constrained Grade A market. Our existing portfolio in the West End continues to outperform, with recent deals setting new benchmark rents for the area. This, combined with the strength of the wider London market, gives us the confidence to fully commit to exceptional projects like Thirty High, one of the only office towers in the West End.”
