JRA carried out masterplanning for the repositioning of the Devonshire Square Estate for Blackstone.
Devonshire Square is a large mixed use estate located in the eastern edge of the City of London that comprises a combination of Grade II Listed and 1980s office buildings. The masterplan included the rolling refurbishment of several of the buildings on the estate to deliver a destination workplace with benchmark estate facilities. In addition, JRA improved the public realm and entrance to the estate, enhancing connectivity across the site and integration with the local area.
The site comprises commercial office space, retail, a bar and leisure facilities, providing an estate of complimentary amenities in the centre of the city.
