Work to start on Farringdon office scheme
International workspace provider HB Reavis has reaffirmed its commitment to London with the acquisition of the 12,800m² Crossrail Over-Site Development (OSD) at Farringdon West, located in the heart of Clerkenwell in Central London.
Designed by award-winning British architecture practice John Robertson Architects, the project comprises office, retail and amenity space.
The development has been designed to focus on delivering the highest quality of office accommodation. Wellbeing has been introduced as a main theme running through the entire development to ensure a creative, content and motivated community of users in the building.
The scheme’s office floors have been reconfigured to provide a single core, creating open, flexible floorplates of up to 2,700m². Designed by StudioShaw, the ground floor intends to be enjoyed by both the public and occupiers: offering a lively mix of food and beverage options, as well as a garden area positioned both within and outside the building.
Construction of the seven-storey commercial scheme is expected to commence this year and complete in 2020.
