A new development at the corner of Hanover Square and Oxford Street will connect two properties currently separated by an internal courtyard and create around 63,500 sq ft of office and retail space.
McLaren has been appointed by Aviva Life & Pensions to demolish the existing office and retail buildings and construct the new eight storey building.
The new development, built over seven floors and basement, will comprise around 15,000 sq ft of retail space and 48,500 sq ft of office space.
Constructed with a structural steel frame and composite concrete floors, the new building will feature three levels of retail space (over basement, ground and first floor levels), a high quality reception, Portland stone walls and a roof garden.
The Oxford Street façade will consist of precast panels with faience tiles and feature bay windows, while the Hanover Square façade will consists of brick slip precast panels and curved glazed units. Flanking walls will be finished in a variety of brickworks.
