The new building at 38 Berkeley Square in London will provide 85,000 sq ft of office space across nine stories above ground and two basements, with more than 7,000 sq ft of communal terracing.
The scheme includes 9,000 sq ft of retail use on the ground and lower floors.
Prior to the redevelopment, the building is arranged over basement, ground and eight upper floors.
Toureen Contractors is already making progress pulling down the old building, with Tilley & Barrett Demolition. They are currently working on the fifth-floor slab as they works their way down.
Designed by architect Piercy & Company, 38 Berkeley Square, previously known as Berger House, will use a mix of precast facades and Portland stone.
Completion is expected in the first quarter of 2024.
