Kier has secured a contract from developer CO-RE to build a new commercially led mixed-use project on Tottenham Court Road in London.

Located 200m from Oxford Street, the mixed-use development, named The Fitzrovia, is an 88,000ft2 redevelopment project.

The six-storey development will provide 65,000ft2 of office space, eight residential apartments, and 8,000ft2 of education and retail space.

The facade of the project will include brick and ceramic faced precast concrete panels, glazing will be installed off site and craned into position.

CO-RE director David Hutton said: “The Fitzrovia will go beyond the requirements of the modern occupier, providing a high-end design and flexible commercial space just moments from the transformed Tottenham Court Road Station.

“As we step into a new era, access to outside space is an increasingly important consideration for all occupiers. The Fitzrovia will meet this demand through the provision of both private and communal outdoor terraces.”

Kier has recently delivered mixed-use 80 Grosvenor St in Mayfair to Frelene.

The company is also set to deliver the £106m Marylebone Square scheme, which will feature 25 affordable apartments and 54 private apartments across five upper floors.

The ground and lower ground floors of the 270,800ft2 project will provide space for restaurant, retail, and community facilities as well as a community hall.

Prior to this development, joint venture developers Stanhope, Mitsui Fudosan and AIMCo awarded a contract to Kier to construct 142 new affordable homes at Television Centre in London.

The new homes will be constructed in two new buildings, named Macfarlane Place, on the former BBC multi-storey car park located on Wood Lane, W12, opposite Westfield.
