Aviva Investors, the global asset management business of Aviva PLC, has entered into a development agreement with Transport for London (TfL) to build a new mixed-use retail and office building at 1 Liverpool Street.
The proposal will deliver a building opposite the new Liverpool Street Elizabeth line eastern station entrance at 1 Liverpool Street as well as above and around Crossrail infrastructure, which will complete the west end of Liverpool Street.
The Eric Parry-designed scheme will provide circa 175,000 sq. ft. (net leasable area) of office and retail space over ground and 10 upper floors, subject to planning approval. The site bookmarks the Crossrail platform with Aviva Investors’ ongoing development at 101 Moorgate. This development at the new eastern entrance to the Elizabeth line at Liverpool Street station complements the site opposite the new western entrance at 101 Moorgate, which Aviva Investors concluded a deal with TfL for earlier this year.
The project intends to deliver a quality building on the south west edge of Liverpool Street and benefits from the significant investment being made into Liverpool Street and Broadgate. The scheme will establish a strong visual connection between the key urban spaces of Finsbury Circus, Liverpool Street and Broadgate.
