Amsterdam-based developer Edge has revealed the designs for its new £450 mln London project described as the UK capital’s most sustainable office tower.
The Pilbrow and Partners-designed scheme to be called Edge London Bridge marks the company’s first foray in the UK and will provide around 255,000 sq ft (23,500 m2) of space over 26 storeys.
Edge London Bridge is designed to achieve both BREEAM Outstanding and WELL Platinum certification, which would make this the only office tower in London to receive both accreditations at this level.
In June 2019, Edge announced plans for the building on the South Bank in June last year when it bought the development site. The planning application has already been submitted.
‘These trying times make importance of healthier and more sustainable buildings even more clear,’ says EDGE’s COO Boudewijn Ruitenburg. ‘We will continue to address this in working with all our stakeholders and partners. We aim to make EDGE London Bridge the most sustainable office tower in London, offering high quality office space with the highest wellbeing standards. We aim to make a significant and sustainable impact on further development in London, without losing sight of the history and heritage that is part of London’s appeal.’
CBRE and Knight Frank have been appointed as leasing agents on the scheme.
