Posted on by Offices.org.uk

A BRAND new 26 storey office building in Southwark, London, has been given the green light, reports local community website SE1.

The site of the dual phase scheme designed by architects HPF on behalf of developer Overcourt Ltd is Paris Gardens and Hatfields just off Blackfriars Road.

Over 56,000 square metres of new and refurbished office floor space will be delivered by the project will provide space for 3,000 workers.

Non listed office buildings at the half-hectare 1-5 Paris Gardens / 16-19 Hatfields location will be demolished to make way for a part-23, part-26 storey skyscraper.

Grade II listed former print works at the site will be refurbished as part of the scheme which will also see the development of a new public square at ground level.

The new tower is just one of a cluster of tall buildings built or in development close to Blackfriars Road. Councillors on the Southwark Council’s Planning Committee approved the plan at a meeting shortly before Christmas.
