Crossrail has submitted an application to Westminster Council for the development of a new six-floor, 65,000 sq ft office development above Bond Street underground station in West London in conjunction with property developer Grosvenor. The design by PLP Architecture will take account of other construction work on the site as part of Bond Street’s development as a station on the new £15 billion Crossrail project. Grosvenor will be responsible for delivering the over site development of the scheme once station and ticket hall construction works are completed in 2017.
Ian Morrison, London Estate Development Director, Grosvenor said: “65 Davies Street is part of a significant office pipeline for Grosvenor in Mayfair that reflects our commitment to the office sector in the area and the continued strength of the sector generally. We are working closely with Crossrail’s team and PLP Architecture to design a striking and contemporary new building that responds to customer needs, compliments and enhances the urban form of Mayfair and delivers excellent sustainability credentials.”
Ian Lindsay, Crossrail’s Land and Property Director said: “Crossrail will boost the West End’s position as a thriving cultural and retail destination and the new commercial space at Davies Street will further enhance the wider Oxford Street area. Sites above Crossrail stations, including Bond Street, are being developed with public spaces around stations improved to ensure we take full advantage of the huge redevelopment opportunities Crossrail is bringing to London.”
