Crossrail’s Bond Street West development approved

6 Nov 13 Westminster City Council has approved plans for a six-storey office block to be built above Crossrail’s new Bond Street station.

Crossrail and development partner Grosvenor submitted the designs for the 65,000 sq ft at 65 Davies Street in Mayfair, above what will be the western ticket hall of the new Bond Street station.

The design by PLP Architecture incorporates a ventilation shaft that will be constructed as part of the Crossrail works.

Grosvenor will be responsible for delivering the scheme once the Crossrail station and ticket hall are completed in 2017. Crossrail will also deliver improvements to the surrounding public areas on Davies Street and Weighhouse Street.

The Bond Street scheme is one of a number of over-site developments Crossrail is delivering. A total of three million square feet of office, retail and residential space is planned above new Crossrail stations and sites. Planning permission has now been secured for more than a third of this so far with schemes approved at sites including Bond Street East (Hanover Square), 101 Moorgate, a number of developments above Crossrail Tottenham Court Road station, and now the Bond Street West (Davies Street) scheme. Further over-site development schemes will go through the planning process later this year.
