London office development in Hammersmith is approved.
Office development in Hammersmith gets the go ahead from London Council.
BFLS has had its plans for two office buildings in Hammersmith approved by the London Council.
The development will include the construction of two buildings that will contain office space. Together they will provide 25,000 square feet of office space and span ten and eight stories high respectively. Additionally the scheme will see the creation of several cafés and open public spaces.
“We are absolutely delighted with this approval. It represents the culmination of an intense consultation process which has involved planners, design review panel, local interest groups and the public,” commented David Lawrence, managing director of BFLS.
Currently the site sits vacant in-between the Hammersmith & City line Tube station and Lyric Square. The close proximity to the station will be an attractive prospect for potential buyers.
The developers also aim to create properties that are highly environmentally friendly. The two buildings will supposedly emit 20% less carbon dioxide than standard offices. BFLS have met some controversy from local campaigners over the project, however they claim that it will help the development of the area.
“The scheme has a very strong design diagram and we are looking forward to delivering the buildings, and public realm, which represents a significant step forward in the regeneration of the centre of Hammersmith,” said Mr Lawrence.
The first phase of the development is expected to start later this year.
