FORE starts highly-sustainable London office development (UK)
FORE Partnership has begun development of a highly-sustainable, speculative office project by the River Thames in central London.
VIEW 58 will provide 47,000 ft² (4.366 m²) of Grade-A office space at 58 Victoria Embankment on the north bank of the Thames in Midtown, and is being delivered with development partner Kier Property.
The development has been sensitively designed by architects TP Bennett to retain the historic feel of the façade, while providing a contemporary, highly-functional office environment behind it.
Sustainability is central to VIEW 58. FORE and Kier have adopted green construction practices - incorporating technologies not seen before in the UK - and are actively engaging with the local community. The building is also designed to exceed BREEAM’s ‘Excellent’ sustainability rating.
Basil Demeroutis, Managing Partner of FORE Partnership, commented: “The building has been designed with a highly-sustainable ethos, underpinning a Grade-A specification. Not only does this future proof the building, but it also cuts the operating costs for tenants by almost a third.”
