London £74m Grade A office scheme gets nod

Plans for a £74 million Grade A office development in the City of London got the green light this week.

The 13 storey building for property investment firm Telereal will be built on a former BT Exchange over the proposed Crossrail tunnels.

HKR Architects submitted plans for the Fore Street project after it won invited design competition for the commission in June 2006. It beat several major practices including Sheppard Robson, Hamilton Associates and Horden Cherry Lee to win the deal.

HKR director David Roden said: “The City of London and Square Mile businesses demand buildings of exceptional architectural quality, which this scheme delivers. The planners were very supportive of the design concept from the outset.”
