Green light for Fisher Street residences by HOK

Camden Council has approved an 8-storey, 30,000 sq ft residential development in Holborn, London designed by HOK as part of a development by Crossrail. The new residences are gold in tone and will be located above a single-storey structure that provides access and ventilation to below-ground Crossrail tunnels.

Crossrail is currently working on 3 million sq ft of high-quality office, retail and residential space in London and the South East of England. More details about the Fisher Street development can be found here.

Ian Lindsay, Crossrail’s Land and Property Director said: “We are very pleased to gain planning consent to develop this much needed residential space. Building above the Fisher Street site is part of our strategy to regenerate areas all along the line and capture the value presented by the creation of Crossrail.

"It should be an attractive site for developers and ultimately a very attractive place to live in the middle of one of the world’s greatest cities.”
