Lendlease and LCR, joint venture partners of International Quarter London, one of the largest new commercial developments in Europe, today announced they have secured planning approval for the fourth office building on site in Stratford.
Designed by world acclaimed architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, the new building will create 280,000 sq. ft. of new workspace across 10 storeys and sit in a prominent location on the site. This planning consent builds on the progress being made at International Quarter London, which will welcome the first commercial tenant, Transport for London, to their new major office in September.
Jonathan Emery, Managing Director Property, Europe for Lendlease,
“Momentum is truly building at International Quarter London and achieving planning permission for our S9 building is another exciting step forward for the development.Completing our second residential tower at Glasshouse Gardens in May and seeing our first two commercial buildings take shape is a testament to the pace of change happening in Stratford.”
David Joy, Chief Executive at LCR, said:
“We’re pleased to have achieved approval for our fourth commercial building. 2017 has already seen us celebrate the topping out of the Financial Conduct Authority’s new headquarters and we look forward to hitting more major milestones this year.We are excited to continue working with Lendlease to deliver the next phase of construction and bring to life our vision of a new working environment for London’s businesses.”
At the heart of thriving Stratford and forming a gateway to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, International Quarter London, benefits from outstanding transport connections, shopping, leisure and sports facilities and green open spaces.
Lendlease and LCR are in discussions with a number of major tenants about moving to International Quarter London which once completed will house more than 25,000 employees each day.
