Farringdon East Crossrail

The work at Bond Street West led to a second commission for Crossrail. At the over–station development in Farringdon, the calm overall form of the office building is enlivened by fine–scaled elevations inspired by the 19th century warehouses that frame the historic Smithfield Market. This is a project of PLP Architecture.

The primary objectives for the development include delivery of a commercially robust model that will offer attractive revenue to a potential developer and allow maximum returns for Crossrail, as well as a well organised, vibrant and well–lit space attractive to potential tenants.

The proposal includes an office lobby, a ground floor mezzanine level, back of house areas, retail space at ground floor and five levels of office accommodation, suitable for professional organisations and commercial occupiers. The development is designed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.
