Mace, a London-based consultancy and construction company, has been appointed as construction manager for the 26-storey residential tower, known as Shard Place, near London Bridge Station in the UK.
Shard Place, which will replace Fielden House, will become the third building in Shard Quarter, which also includes The Shard and The News Building.
The whole Shard Quarter has been designed by Renzo Piano for Qatari-funded developer Real Estate Management (UK) and its UK partner Sellar Property Group.
Under the agreement, Mace will offer full construction management services for Shard Place including the delivery of the shell and core, the fit out of the apartments, all associated MEP services, residential amenities and the public realm.
Shard Place will provide 180,000 sq ft of space over 26 floors and marks the third phase of the 2.5 million sq ft regeneration of the area near London Bridge Station.
The tower will feature 148 residential apartments, ranging in from studios to one-, two- and three-bedrooms. It will also include a roof garden on the 16th floor that will provide residents with direct access to outside space.
Located between St. Thomas Street and London Bridge Street, the new tower will be raised above ground level and set back from the road at St Thomas Street, providing additional retail space and an extended public realm.
Dan Pearson Studio has been chosen to design the landscaping for both the public realm and Shard Place, working with Renzo Piano Building Workshop and the REM / Sellar development team.
Real Estate Management (UK) Limited CEO Michael Baker said: “Mace was one of our trusted partners on The Shard and we look forward to working with them to complete the third building in Renzo Piano’s vision for Shard Quarter.
“Since The Shard’s inception, the area around London Bridge Station has undergone a complete transformation and is almost unrecognisable.
“The thriving community of employees, visitors, guests and commuters that come to Shard Quarter every day has enlivened the area and we look forward to welcoming residents to the neighbourhood when Shard Place is ready for occupation.”
