The Fitzrovia is an 88,000 sq ft redevelopment project by developer Co-re. It is Kier's second big win in the capital this week.

The six-storey Fitzrovia scheme will provide eight residential apartments, 65,000 sq ft of office space and 8,000 sq ft of retail and education space. The facade will consist of both ceramic and brick faced precast concrete panels, with glazing installed off site and craned into position as finished bays.

“The Fitzrovia will go beyond the requirements of the modern occupier, providing a high-end design and flexible commercial space just moments from the transformed Tottenham Court Road Station,” said Co-re director David Hutton.

Contract value was not disclosed but Kier said that, combined with the recently secured project for Stanhope at the old BBC Television Centre site in Wood Lane [see our report from yesterday here], the total value of the two contracts is £107m.

Liam Cummins, group managing director at Kier Construction said: “We are delighted to be delivering on our strategic goal of market growth through developing our relationships with long-term blue-chip clients. These high profile wins not only grow our portfolio in the London market, but they also build on our technical excellence and experience in delivering large-scale mixed-use and residential schemes.”

Kier recently handed over mixed-use 80 Grosvenor St in Mayfair to Frelene (Grosvenor Street) Limited and is currently on site delivering the £106m Marylebone Square scheme, the last whole city block in the W1 postcode to be developed. This 270,800 sq ft project will have 54 private apartments and 25 affordable apartments across five upper floors, with the ground and lower ground floors providing retail, restaurant and community facilities including a community hall.
