Historic London Underground offices could be turned in to homes

Posted on by Offices.org.uk

GRADE I listed office space used by the London Underground could be turned in to flats, if local planners in Westminster agree.

Transport for London has announced that it plans to submit a planning application next month to convert historic 55 Broadway in to flats with a mix of affordable, social and private housing.

The iconic offices were designed by architect Charles Holden and built in the late 1920s for the Underground Electric Railways Company of London – the forerunner of London Underground.

Graeme Craig, Director of Commercial Development at TfL, said:

“All revenue raised from the redevelopment of 55 Broadway and the rest of our commercial activities will be reinvested, enabling us to make journeys better for everyone who uses public transport and the road network, bear down on the fares and charges people are asked to pay, and support economic prosperity in London and the UK.”

Architects TateHindle have been appointed to lead the redevelopment.
