Green light for Kajima scheme – 77 Coleman Street
17 August 2016
BuckleyGrayYeoman has secured planning permission for the comprehensive remodelling and extension of 77 Coleman Street to create an 81,924 sq ft office-led development in the City of London, on behalf of Kajima properties.
The project will create a new public street in the heart of the City: Nun Court will be extended to connect Coleman Street and Moorgate, providing a valuable pedestrian link and access to new shops and restaurants that will activate the streetscape. 77 Coleman Street will incorporate 13,573 sq ft of retail and leisure uses on the lower ground and ground floors to encourage a lively, populated public realm. There will also be a two storey roof extension.
John Harcourt, Director of Kajima Properties, said:
“77 Coleman Street is a fantastic scheme and a new address for the City and it will combine the highest quality design, voluminous & efficient floorplates and a fantastic outlook across one of the City’s exceptionally rare green spaces.”
“Whilst its location is undoubtedly core City, we see 77 Coleman Street as a ‘London’ building given its design and its proximity to the Elizabeth Line, and expect it to appeal to occupiers looking at the City for the first time as well as the more design-conscious traditional occupiers.”
“The retail and leisure elements, whilst separate, will complement the offices as well as start the regeneration of Moorgate as a new City retail destination.”
The building is expected to be complete in 2019.
