LIM/Citygrove get all clear for 60 London Wall
LaSalle Investment Management and Citygrove Securities have finalised their
planning consent with the City of London for the redevelopment of 60 London Wall
in London EC2.
The property will provide 325,000 sq ft of offices over ten floors and a newly reconfigured ground floor retail offering totalling 20,000 sq ft. The office floors will range from 18,000 sq ft to 40,000 sq ft, with 21,000 sq ft of terraces over the five upper floors. Overall the new development will offer 30% more floor accommodation than the existing building.
60 London Wall is located in the heart of the City of London within a five minute walk of Moorgate, Liverpool Street and Bank stations, which together offer connections to six underground lines and the Docklands Light Railway.
It will benefit from the opening of Crossrail/Elizabeth Line in 2018 with the new east ticket hall situated just 150m from the building and interchanges at Liverpool Street and Moorgate offering rapid links to Heathrow Airport and Canary Wharf.
Skanska has been appointed as the main contractor following a detailed tender process with completion targeted for Q4 2019 / Q1 2020.
The project team includes EPR Architects.
Gary Moore, Head of International Accounts, LaSalle Investment Management, said: “The team have created a first-class design, both internally and externally, with the upper floors having exceptional terracing which is rare in such a core City location. Our clients are very committed to the project and we look forward to working with Skanska and the professional team to complete the building.”
Knight Frank and JLL are instructed as office leasing agents.
