UK-based consultancy and construction firm Mace has been appointed by AlloyMtd Group as main contractor to deliver the redevelopment of One Crown Place in London, UK.
Construction is due to commence on the site in April 2018.
One Crown Place has a combination of modern architecture housing a mix of modern offices with apartments on the upper floors. In contrast, the last remaining complete row of Georgian houses in the area fronts the scheme.
Measuring 22,000ft2 of net area, they are to be restored to their former condition.
They will include a clubhouse for the residents, together with a boutique hotel, which includes a destination restaurant.
Bespoke Hotels will operate the boutique hotel.
One Crown Place will comprise two residential towers located above a podium office space to meet the requirements of modern day occupiers who intend to live and work in the same area.
The residential accommodation will provide 246 private apartments.
The office space will be housed in two buildings – a new podium building and the refurbished 54 Wilson Street building, providing 120,000ft2 and 20,000ft2 of net floor area respectively.
Retail space will be available across the ground floor of all the buildings.
Designed by architects Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), the One Crown Place development is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2020.
AlloyMtd Group had appointed property firm in 2015 to act as development manager, to sell the site’s 246 private apartments and lease 140,000ft2 of commercial space.
Mace COO for construction Gareth Lewis said: “The project’s unique design will make for a complex construction delivery; particularly the engineering behind the three-storey steel truss that supports the two towers.
“We look forward to working closely with AlloyMtd Group and our supply chain partners to overcome those challenges and deliver a project which will leave a lasting legacy for London.”
AlloyMtd Group CEO Tee Kim Siew said: “We are very pleased to have appointed Mace to deliver this iconic mixed-use development in Central London.
“This is a major milestone for the project and for AlloyMtd Group and demonstrates our commitment to delivering a world-class, vibrant destination located in one of the capital’s most exciting areas.”
