St James Market Phase 2 will comprise an approximate 300,000ft² mixed use development. At the basement and ground floor will be retail and restaurant units together with two office receptions. Levels 1 to 7 will comprise new office accommodation served by two separate cores in order to provide flexibility for future leasing options. There will be two levels of basement housing plant, waste facility, cycle stores, changing room and shower facilities together with the usual building management space.

Further plant areas are provided at roof level including for retail and office tenant’s use. At various levels of the building will be external terraces with a combination of private and communal use.

Sustainability is very high on both Client’s agenda including the team targeting BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating for the office accommodation and ‘Excellent’ rating for the retail space, along with a WELL Gold rating. The Crown Estate Development Sustainability Principles are being adopted throughout together with maximising amenity, biodiversity and renewable energy solutions.

The MEP services strategy for heating and cooling in all areas aligns with The London Plan in terms of utilising air source heat pumps with no burning of fossil fuel. In addition, the project is the “pioneer” related to the Design for Performance initiative and NABERS UK rating.
