Mace completes London’s latest skyscraper
The development will deliver a total of 246 private apartments and a fully restored Georgian terrace which is being transformed into a 41-room hotel and 140,000 sq ft of premium office space.
Composed of concrete and glass with deep steel trusses at the base, the façade of the adjacent 28- and 34-storey towers are made up of glazed terracotta.
The design combines original heritage buildings with modern architecture from Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF).
Mace has used modern methods of construction and the latest technology to deliver One Crown Place.
Working together with Disperse, the team has visually tracked construction progress while using data to address inefficiencies, redefining the boundaries of delivery.
Mace has delivered One Crown Place as a BREEAM Excellent rated project. This was achieved through high performance glazing to control solar gain and heat loss, energy efficient lighting and daylight sensors.
Global property firm CBRE was appointed by MTD Group in 2015 to act as both development manager and project manager to market the site's 246 private apartments and 140,000 sq ft of commercial space.
An iconic mixed-use development for London
Gareth Lewis, CEO for construct at Mace, said: "Working alongside MTD Group whose leadership and vision was vital for the landmark scheme's success, we strived for an innovative approach to deliver One Crown Place.
"Redefining the boundaries of construction delivery, our team used new digital tools and cutting-edge structural steel installation as part of our delivery strategy.
"This project represented a complex construction challenge; and I'm very proud that our hard work has delivered such an iconic new skyscraper for London."
MTD Group head of international real estate & properties and director of AMTD London Development Co Ltd, Tee Kim Siew, added: "We are proud to announce the practical completion of this iconic mixed-use development in Central London.
"This is a major milestone for MTD Group and we would like to thank the Mace team as well as the One Crown Place Project team for exceeding our expectations and delivering our vision for the landmark scheme to the highest standards ahead of schedule.
"This is an incredible achievement in the current circumstances and one that is borne out of the benefits of "One Team" culture.
"With One Crown Place, we've brought a new vibrant destination to life, creating a new live-work hub in an enviable location that is not just Monday-Friday, nine-to-five.
"We look forward to introducing One Crown Place to the Capital."
