Detailed planning has been submitted by gcp Chartered Architects for the redevelopment of a 1960’s office building in the heart of the city of London, just off High Holborn.
The project comprises of adding two new floors on top of a four-storey concrete framed building on an extremely confined site accessed via a doorway off High Holborn 2.5m wide and 5.2m high. The challenge of this limited access has driven all the design decisions for the scheme.
The project for Courtenay Investments Limited will be developed to CAT A Standards and will feature 16,700 sq ft of office space over 6 floors designed to offer maximum flexibility in letting. It will be a significant improvement on the current very tired building that offers only 11,500 sq ft of poor quality office space.
The scheme is due to start on site in Spring 2018 with a planned completion by December 2019.
