British Land and GIC have submitted a planning application for the refurbishment and extension of 100 Liverpool Street, to create an as new building totaling around 515,000 sq ft of office and retail space.
Under the proposed plans, a further three floors, covering 135,000 sq ft will be added to 100 Liverpool Street, and the 9th floor of the building will include a spectacular restaurant with external terracing. The proposal also improves the connections and public space between 100 Liverpool Street, Liverpool Street Station and the Broadgate Circle.
This development forms part of British Land and GIC’s long-term vision for Broadgate, the City’s premier office campus. Located around Liverpool Street station, one of London’s most important transport hubs, Broadgate will benefit from the opening of Crossrail in 2018 as well as the ongoing regeneration to the north and east of the City. As part of the long-term vision, 5 Broadgate is under construction and the Broadgate Circle is being redeveloped with completion on both expected within the next few months. 5 Broadgate is fully let to UBS, and the new retail units at the Broadgate Circle are over 97% pre-let or under offer to high profile brands including Yauatcha, The Botanist, Comptoir Libanais and Aubaine.
Designed by Hopkins Architects, one of the UK’s leading architectural practices, the proposal for 100 Liverpool Street sees the retention of the buildings’ structural frame and uses gently curving facades to give the buildings a fresh new identity.
