Plans unveiled for Crossrail over-site development at Paddington

Crossrail has submitted a planning application to Westminster City Council for a major over-site development at Paddington.

The 30,000m², Gimshaw-designed development is located at the junction of Bishop’s Bridge Road and the Grand Union Canal, with the new London Underground Hammersmith & City line station to the south. It will comprise 15 storeys of office space with the retail and office entrance at canal level.

The building has been designed to incorporate access to Crossrail, National Rail and Hammersmith & City line services at Paddington, and includes urban realm improvements and a new public lift and staircase from the canal towpath up to Bishop’s Bridge Road.

Crossrail land and property director Ian Lindsay said: “This development will signal the completion of a further phase in the renaissance of Paddington as a major commercial location.”
