Planning permission and Listed Building Consent has been granted for our scheme at Fenchurch Street station, which will transform the Grade II listed building and its environs into a new destination for the City of London.
The Grade II listed station is part of an urban area with a rich and dynamic character. The approved proposal strengthens the dialogue between the square and station, providing views and a flexible space which will serve as a lunchtime retreat as well as a venue for business meetings. Reintroducing and maximizing natural light inside the station will dramatically enhance the quality of space and help reduce energy consumption.
New shops and restaurants will offer a curated tenants mix for a fuller customer experience. Reconfiguring the retail spaces will create a larger space on the ground floor, blending into the square. On the first floor, a continuous ribbon of frameless shop fronts will replace the existing shop windows, creating an adaptable break out space and opening up a spectacular view of Fenchurch Place and the iconic towers of the square mile.
Nick McGough, Associate Partner said: “We are delighted our ambitious proposals for c2c at Fenchurch Street Station have been well received by the City of London. The station concourse will be flooded with natural light for the first time in over 30 years with views to the city cluster and beyond making a huge difference to the 17 million annual commuter journeys the station provides for as well as providing a new local amenity.”
