Planners at the London Borough of Islington have granted consent for Charterhouse Place, a new commercial development at the gateway to the “Charterhouse Quarter” of Farringdon and Smithfield. The scheme at the former site of Caxton House will provide 15,400 sq m of high-quality office space over nine storeys and 1,400 sq m of retail space at ground floor level.
Associate Director Chris Waite said: “Our work at Charterhouse Place was all about creating a landmark development that doesn’t overwhelm the charm of its surroundings.”
Alongside developer Henderson Global the practice engaged in a productive consultation with planners from the London Borough of Islington. The high quality development will become a flagship project for this area of London, responding appropriately to surrounding heritage assets.
