Kier bags £50m London office and resi job in Fitzrovia
Known as The Fitzrovia, the 88,000 sq ft redevelopment project is located 200m from Oxford Street and is being developed on behalf of M&G Real Estate.
The six-storey scheme will provide 65,000 sq ft of Grade A office space, 8,000 sq ft of shop space with eight flats across all floors at one end of the building.
Offsite construction will be a key focus, the facade will consist of both ceramic and brick-faced precast concrete panels, with glazing installed off-site and craned into position as finished bays.
The Stiff + Trevillion-designed scheme has a large focus on sustainability, with targets of BREEAM Excellent, WELL Gold, WIRED Platinum, and NABERS accreditation. Watkins Payne Partnership has deliver M&E design.
David Hutton, director at CO-RE, said: “The Fitzrovia will go beyond the requirements of the modern occupier, providing a high-end design and flexible commercial space just moments from the transformed Tottenham Court Road Station.
“As we step into a new era, access to outside space is an increasingly important consideration for all occupiers. The Fitzrovia will meet this demand through the provision of both private and communal outdoor terraces.”
Kier is building a strong portfolio of recent mixed-use schemes in London.
It has recently handed over mixed-use 80 Grosvenor St in Mayfair to Frelene (Grosvenor Street) and is currently on site delivering the £106m Marylebone Square scheme, the last whole city block in the W1 postcode to be developed.
