The building will feature a 15,000-square-foot reception area and a significant public realm, as well as two roof terraces exclusively for tenant use. Amazon, the global on-line retailer, has pre-let 430,000 sq ft of space at Principal Place, with occupation in 2017.
Liverpool St. Station is less than a 5 minute walk and offers exceptional connectivity with four underground lines, national rail links and Crossrail.
The building will target a BREEAM Excellent rating and target completion is for 2016.
In addition to the office scheme, half acre public piazza and 20,000 sq ft of retail space, there is also a significant residential component. Principal Tower, the 50-storey luxury residential establishment at Principal Place, will be Foster + Partners’ first fully designed residential tower, reaching 175 meters, making it one of the tallest residential buildings in Central London.
