Over Site Development (including route protection)

Bond_Street_Station_ _architects_impression_of_Davies_Street_over_site_development_and_public_realm_143119.jpgCrossrail has integrated designs for 12 major property developments over and around its key central London stations. Development plans cover over three million square feet of high-quality office, retail and residential space.

The receipts from property developments are targeted to generate an income of approximately £500m as part of the core Crossrail funding strategy.

Six development partners are already working in partnership with us and we are seeking partners for the remaining six development opportunities. Planning consent has been obtained for ten schemes  with only one further application to be submitted and a development framework brief under discussion on the final remaining site.

Details of the over site development portfolio are included in our Places and Spaces property development brochure. Below are papers on some of the challenges faced.
