The development provides 528,500ft² of office space and 90,500ft² of retail and restaurant accommodation across two buildings linked by a large deparment store. EPR’s design opened up what was once the relatively inaccessible heart of the site for public use through the creation of new direct links from Victoria Street, one of which opens up a vista on Westminster Cathedral immediately to the south.
The first building, 80-100 Victoria Street, provides 38,700m² of office space. It features a large concourse at the first-floor level. The second building, 16 Palace Street, provides 10,400m² of office space. Linking these buildings at ground level is a 2,500m² retail store with a roof garden above for public use.
