TfL takes on Rogers' International Quarter building

  • Comment

London’s mayoral transport agency will lease an entire 24,600m2 Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP)-designed office building at Stratford’s The International Quarter.

Developers Lend Lease and London and Continental Railways announced that Transport for London (TfL) had signed a pre-let agreement for the building, which forms part of the second stage of the £2.1billion project, on the edge of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London.

Ivan Harbour, senior partner and lead designer at RSHP, said he expected the International Quarter to become a global example of best practice in the development of new working environments.

‘Our tailored approach to the building design creates efficiency, continuity and coherency across the site whilst offering bespoke solutions to meet the specific needs of occupier,’ he said.

‘This, together with a similarly coherent ground plane, characterises the neighbourhood as a core piece of the emerging city quarter, whilst the focus on daylight, views, connectivity, community spaces and public realm produces truly cutting-edge workplaces with people at their heart.’

Construction of the building is due to start in the summer. It is expected to house some 3,000 TfL staff, out of a total of 25,000 who will work in the new district or visit it on a daily basis.

Vogt Landscape Architects is also part of the project team.
