Plans for 65,000 sq ft Bond Street London office space submitted

New plans have been submitted to Westminster City Council for a significant over-site development at Bond Street station.

The two firms, Crossrail and its development partner Grosvenor, are looking to construct a building that will offer 65,000 sq ft of London office space above the station’s western ticket hall.

Designed by PLP Architecture, the new building at 65 Davies Street in Mayfair will offer new offices across its six floors.

It will be Grosvenor’s responsibility to carry out work on the office block once Crossrail complete the construction of the Crossrail station and ticket office at the location: with that work scheduled for completion in 2017.

Grosvenor London estate development director, Ian Morrison, said: “65 Davies Street is part of a significant office pipeline for Grosvenor in Mayfair that reflects our commitment to the office sector in the area and the continued strength of the sector generally.”

Crossrail land and property director, Ian Lindsay, was confident that the new construction would help to further promote the West End as a top cultural and retail destination with the new commercial space enhancing the Oxford Street area even more.

He said: “Sites above Crossrail stations, including Bond Street, are being developed with public spaces around stations improved to ensure we take full advantage of the huge redevelopment opportunities Crossrail is bringing to London.”
