Principal Place is a landmark, new mixed-use development located on the City of London/Shoreditch border. The 600,000-square-foot Foster & Partners designed office scheme offers efficient and high density Grade A space with typical floors of 44,500 square feet. 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.
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.
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 is currently under construction with completion scheduled for 2016. The residential tower will be completed in 2018.
