Office scheme will be built above Bond Street station
The final Crossrail over station development site near Bond Street station has been handed over to developer Grosvenor.
Multiplex will build the speculative 65,000 sq ft office development at 65 Davies Street, designed by PLP, which will sit above Crossrail’s Bond Street western ticket hall.
The firm beat Kier and Skanska who were also to the job, which is due for completion in September 2023.
Multiplex’s appointment to the £50m scheme is Grosvenor’s first large construction contract award to take into account a supplier’s commitment to a science-based target for reducing carbon emissions.
From 2023, Grosvenor expects to only award contracts over £1m to suppliers with a science-based target, verifying that their commitment to carbon reduction is in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement.
Grsovenor has a current £1.6bn pipeline of development projects across Mayfair covering 1.7 million sq ft.
This includes the recently approved South Molton Triangle, a mixed-use redevelopment adjacent to the new Bond Street station drawn up by Hopkins Architects.
Crossrail trains on the key central London section of the route will run in the first half of next year although when Bond Street station will open has still not been decided upon.
