PLP Architecture is acting as lead consultant on the East Ticket Hall new station development and has unveiled new images of the office building above the station.
The six-storey scheme will sit above the station’s eastern ticket hall on Lindsey Street and offer 15,572sqm of office space, with retail units on the ground floor.
The site is bounded by the Smithfield Conservation Area to the west and the Charterhouse Square Conservation Area to the east and to the north.
The building’s exterior was carefully designed to reflect the style proportions and colour palette of architecture in the area and complement neighbouring buildings, including the adjacent Grade II listed Smithfield market
Daniel Moore, Architect at PLP Architecture said: “PLP Architecture has worked on the design of this building for a number of years and we look forward to seeing its cheerful and well-crafted elevations emerge over the coming months.”
Matthew Bonning-Snook, Property Director at Helical said: “We are a great believer in the potential of the area given the significant impact of Crossrail and due to the wealth of cultural and public realm improvements that are planned and underway locally.
“Our adjacent office scheme overlooking Charterhouse Square, which is fully let, together with our Barts Square project which delivers a new urban quarter to the City and Smithfield, further highlights this belief.”
Construction completion is expected by October 2019.
