Scheme will be at eastern end of Liverpool Street station

Transport for London has signed another deal with Aviva to develop a Crossrail overstation site designed by Eric Parry Architects at Liverpool Street station.

The station in the City of London is being built by Laing O’Rourke with the planned nine-storey building one of 12 planned above and around Crossrail sites.

Subject to planning approval, the building will contain 175,000ft² of lettable office and retail space at the eastern station entrance at 1 Liverpool Street.

Aviva’s head of development James Stevens said: “This is undoubtably one of the best development sites in the City of London.”

TfL and Aviva have already signed an agreement to develop a site opposite the station’s western entrance at 101 Moorgate which has been designed by John Robertson Architects.

This scheme will comprise six floors of office space above the Moorgate Crossrail shaft and retail at ground floor level.

Other buildings set to be built above Crossrail stations include a £50m office block designed by PLP above Bond Street – due to be built by Multiplex – and a £195m scheme above Tottenham Court Road which is being developed by Derwent. Contractor on the AHMM-designed job, called Soho Place, is Laing O’Rourke.
