Planning permission approved for PLP Architecture designed Farringdon offices 

Crossrail has gained planning approval for a new office development above Farringdon Crossrail station, in London, UK, following an appeal decision from the Planning Inspectorate.

The new development, designed by PLP Architecture, will be opposite Smithfield Market and will bring 120,000 sq ft to the City office market.

· Crossrail now has planning consent for 10 over site developments:

Paddington

Bond Street West (65 Davies Street)

Bond Street East (18/19 Hanover Square)

Tottenham Court Road West (Dean Street)

Tottenham Court Road East (One Oxford Street)

Fisher Street

Farringdon West (Cardinal House)

Farringdon East (Lindsey Street)

Liverpool Street West (101 Moorgate)

Woolwich (Armourers Court)

Sitting above Farringdon station’s eastern ticket hall in Lindsey Street, the ground floor plus five storey scheme will offer 120,000 sq ft of high-quality, column-free office space with a large reception and retail units.

Crossrail will now consider development options for the scheme. Construction could begin in 2017 once major work on Farringdon Crossrail station is complete.

When TfL-run Crossrail opens in 2018, Farringdon will be one of London’s best-connected locations, with 140 trains per hour at peak times. It is the only station where Crossrail, London Underground and Thameslink meet. It will offer direct connections to three of London’s five airports and is one stop from the Eurostar connection at St Pancras International.

Ian Lindsay, Land & Property Director at Crossrail said: “The Lindsey Street scheme is part of Crossrail’s plan to bring over 3m sq ft of new, high-quality office, retail and residential space to central London, and reinvest every pound made back into the project.”

The Lindsey Street scheme is one of two Crossrail developments planned above Farringdon station. Crossrail also has planning permission for the 187,000 sq ft Cardinal House office scheme, located above Crossrail’s western ticket hall on the corner of Cowcross Street and Farringdon Road.
