Construction work has started at The Northcliffe in the City of London, following the Corporation of London granting planning permission and listed building consent for JRA’s redevelopment designs of this Grade II listed building for development manager M3 Consulting. JRA is working closely with construction company ISG on realising the building for completion in 2023.
Situated in Tudor Street, near Fleet Street, in the City of London, the 1920s building is the former offices and printing press of the Daily Mail newspaper. Since their vacation, the building formerly known as Northcliffe House, was redeveloped in 2001. JRA’s works will preserve the listed stone-clad facades and extend the office space on the upper three floors. The designs will also reposition the main entrance and reconfigure the atrium to provide amenity space, including break out areas and a café. 200,000 sq ft of office space will be retrofitted with a focus on sustainability and the concept will be unified through references to The Northcliffe’s post-industrial heritage. Three new landscaped roof terraces will be created on the upper levels to provide extensive external amenity space for future office tenants.
BREEAM Excellent is being targeted and the practice’s sustainable approach has been informed by a Life Cycle Assessment commissioned by the client.
