We initially secured permission for the redevelopment of the last “Fleet Street” newspaper office on behalf of the Jewish Chronicle at 25-26 Furnival Street in the heart of Mid-Town, City of London.
The pre-existing building which had been home to the Jewish Chronicle since the early 1950s was demolished, with the brick façade of the existing adjacent Public House being retained and assimilated into the development site to maximise its potential. The new development provides an apart-hotel and business centre, almost unique in a location otherwise dominated by commercial offices. The new building is arranged over basement plus 7/8 Levels, with the ground floor providing a business hub for the residents of the Apart-Hotel.
We worked closely with the City Corporation to ensure that the revised scheme of development would complement and enhance the Conservation area, while delivering sustainable, accessible facilities capable of supporting the City’s pre-eminent commercial role.
