The fourth office building for one of Europe’s largest commercial developments has received planning approval. The development is being carried out as a joint project between Lendlease and LCR, both of whom are joint partners of International Quarter London.
The building has been designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, architects that are acclaimed around the world. The building is expected to create 280,000 sq. ft. of new workspace spread out over 10 storeys. The plans are a development on the work already being carried out in the International Quarter London. The Quarter will welcome Transport for London, the first commercial tenant of the new construction. Transport for London will move in to the new major office in September.
The International Quarter London is a development that is being carried out by Lendlease and LCR. The Quarter has been developed in Stratford, and is at the heart of the largest urban regeneration in Europe. The project is expected to create four million sq. ft. of A Grade office space as well as 333 new homes and other community facilities all inside a 22-acre site. It is thought that the new development will become the new location for progressive business. It is thought that the site will attract a lot of attention because of the plentiful amount of green space as well as the connection to some of the most forward-thinking institutions in the world as well as excellent transport connections. The first two residential towers are expected to be finished for May 2017 and one million sq. ft. of the office space has already been pre-let.
The International Quarter London will act as a gateway to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and will be able to aces a high standard of infrastructure such as transport links. It is thought that once completed the International Quarter will be occupied by more than 25,000 employees every day.
