City of London 1970’s office building redevelopment
London’s, 1 Angel Court, office building, built in the 1970’s and situated in the City of London will receive a complete renovation to enhance sustainability and increase its BREAAM rating to ‘Excellent’.
TIA-CREF is the property investor responsible for the revamp and architect Fletcher Rriest will re-design the octagonal tower and increase its office space from 18,000 sq m to 28,000 sq m. Covering the tower will be a floor to ceiling glazing which will give the property a smooth and seamless glass look.
There will also be large landscaped roof terrace and stone façade. However, the entrance will be one of the most significant changes with the size expected to expand by around 35% and new retail outlets added along the side with an escalator running up to reception.
Anthony Butler from TIAA-CREF Asset Management UK said, “This is a significant achievement resulting from two years of work in consultation with the City of London that will bring much needed additional Grade A office space.”
Work on the building will commence in 2013 and is expected to be complete by2016.
