Crossrail and Cardinal Lysander plan new London office space

Crossrail and Cardinal Lysander have submitted a joint planning application for new London office space, according to an article published by Building Design.

The application – submitted to Islington Council and the City of London Corporation – features plans for 20,000 sq meters of office space spread over six storeys, as well as a number of retail units positioned at street level.

The proposed site is  located above the Crossrail station, which sits on the corner of Farringdon Road and Cowcross Street.

Designed by John Robertson Architects, the scheme is set to form part of a revamp of Farringdon in preparation for the opening of the Crossrail service in 2018 – which will see in excess of 140,000 passengers using the station every day.

Commenting on the plans for the new office space, Crossrail land and property director, Ian Lindsay said: “Our proposed developments will accelerate the area’s regeneration, helping Farringdon re-emerge as a destination in its own right.”
