Crossrail seeks planning approval for Bond Street development

Crossrail has this week applied for permission to build a 6000m² office block above its Bond Street station development.

Once construction of the ticket hall and station are complete, which is expected in 2017, property group Grosvenor will build the offices.

“Crossrail will boost the West End’s position as a thriving cultural and retail destination and the new commercial space at Davies Street will further enhance the wider Oxford Street area,” said Crossrail land and property director Ian Lindsay.

“Sites above Crossrail stations, including Bond Street, are being developed with public spaces around stations improved to ensure we take full advantage of the huge redevelopment opportunities Crossrail is bringing to London.”

Over 155,000 passengers use Bond Street station every day but when Crossrail is completed in 2018 this is expected to increase to 225,000.

Planning permission for Kensal Green site

Crossrail has been granted planning permission to build a temporary compound to support Network Rail’s upgrade works on the railway between Old Oak Common and Paddington.

In March 2012 the company applied for permission allowing a new Old Oak Common depot to be built at the same time as Network Rail’s track upgrade works were taking place.

Work on the site will start later this year.
