Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands bags planning for Farringdon mixed-use

  • Comment

[First look + project data] Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands has won planning permission for Charterhouse Place – a 16,800m² mixed-use scheme in Farringdon, London

The nine-storey project for developer Henderson Global Investors replaces the 1960s Caxton House with 15,400m² of office space and 1,400m² of ground floor retail.

Approved by the London Borough of Islington, the scheme features stone cladding at lower levels and a lightweight aluminium skin above.

The scheme features outdoor terraces on the 2nd, 5th, 7th and 9th floors and is targeting BREEAM excellent rating.

Chris Waite, associate director in charge of the project at Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, said: ‘Our work at Charterhouse Place was all about creating a landmark development that doesn’t overwhelm the charm of its surroundings.

‘Not only will Charterhouse Place provide high quality accommodation, but we and Henderson Global Investors have made a positive step to also say “Let’s not lose the character of this special quarter of London. Let’s celebrate this place and build sensitively. Let’s make the most of why we all want to be here in the first place.”’
