Crossrail submits plans for apartment buildings

Crossrail has today submitted plans to build a 30,000sq ft apartment building on top of its Fisher Street shaft in Holborn in central London.

It has submitted an application to Camden Council for the eight-storey building containing 22 one, two and three bedroom apartments.

The building has been designed by architect HOK in consultation with the London Borough of Camden and English Heritage.

“The Fisher Street plans offer a striking piece if architecture for a unique opportunity to deliver residential space in a prime central London location,” said Crossrail’s land and property director Ian Lindsay.

“This is one of a number of commercial opportunities in the pipeline and we are continuing to seek new development partners to help us deliver a range of future schemes

The building will be on top of the Fisher Street ventilation shaft. Construction work on the shaft has begun and is due to be completed in 2015.
