Crossrail - Contractors WorldPlans for striking residential scheme in central London

Crossrail and architects HOK have submitted plans for a striking new residential development at Fisher Street in central London.

A planning application has been submitted to Camden Council for the 30,000 sq ft, eight storey, development which comprises 22 one, two and three bedroom apartments. The development will sit above the Fisher Street shaft - a single storey structure in Holborn that provides ventilation and access to the below ground Crossrail tunnels.

Contractors World - The Fisher Street scheme is the latest over-site development submitted for planning consent by Crossrail.

The scheme has been designed by architects HOK and is located between the conservation areas of Bloomsbury and Kingsway, bordering an eight storey Grade II listed building on Southampton Row. The scheme has been designed in consultation with the London Borough of Camden and English Heritage. Its striking architecture has been carefully designed to ensure the upper levels are set back, leaving space between the new development and the existing listed building. The plans will incorporate the ground floor Crossrail shaft while creating a unique exterior that offers different views of the building from each angle.

The Fisher Street scheme is the latest over-site development submitted for planning consent by Crossrail. A total of 3 million square feet of office, retail and residential space is planned above new Crossrail stations and sites in London with planning consent secured for nearly 1 million sq ft of development so far. These developments will help create new business space, jobs and new homes for Londoners on top of the world-class new transport links Crossrail is delivering.

Several collaboration agreements

Crossrail has entered into a number of Collaboration Agreements with existing landowners to deliver over-site developments. Once the planning process for the Fisher Street site has been completed, Crossrail will begin procuring a development partner for the Fisher Street scheme.

Ian Lindsay, Crossrail’s Land and Property Director said: “Not only is Crossrail delivering world-class new transport links, it is creating high-quality new development opportunities throughout the capital. The Fisher Street plans offer a striking piece of architecture for a unique opportunity to deliver new residential space in a prime central London location. This is one of a number of commercial opportunities in the pipeline and we are continuing to seek new development partners to help us deliver a range of future schemes.”

Construction work on the Fisher Street shaft is already well underway and is expected to be completed in 2015.
