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 Â 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.”
