The Northcliffe is a Grade II listed building on Tudor Street in the City of London and the former headquarters and print works of the Daily Mail newspaper. Situated near Fleet Street, JRA is repositioning the building to accommodate future tenants from the insurance, legal, fin-tech, social media and technology sectors.
Originally built in the 1920s and redeveloped in 2001, JRA’s proposals will preserve the original Daily Mail 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 landscaped 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.
Planning permission has been granted, construction work is underway, and completion is due in early 2023.
