4 August 2016, Blog
London developers, Delancey and LRC Group have been given the green light by Tower Hamlets Council for a 600,000 sq ft office scheme at Royal Mint Court. Just east of the Square Mile, the development will see the complete renovation of two listed buildings that were home to the Royal Mint for 150 years.
Speaking about the scheme, managing director at Delancey said “The scale of Royal Mint Court, coupled with its history and large area of amenity space, make it a one of a kind site in the City of London and we have sought to use this to create an inspirational working environment.”
The new designs for these listed buildings will be refurbished to create 23,500 sq ft of office space to sit above a restaurant and bar, along with a roof terrace with breath-taking views across London. Proposals also include 1.8 acres of landscaped public realm and a new route that will connect St Katharine Docks with Aldgate and step-free access from Tower Hill Underground to nearby residences.
A spokesperson for LRC Group said: “The striking design of the restored historic Johnson-Smirke…will make Royal Mint Court an unrivalled destination for companies looking to make a bold move in the City.”
