Uncommon Liverpool Street

ISG has completed the redevelopment of The Crosspoint next to Liverpool Street station.

This is ISG’s second project for Lord Alan Sugar’s real estate company, Amsprop. They have previously completed 5 Cheapside next to St Paul’s Cathedral.

A number of 4th-century skeletons were recovered from the site over a 4-month excavation by archaeologists.

Speaking after the completion of the project, ISG’s divisional director, Graham Ardley commnted on the challenging project: “Alderman’s House was a very complex project. From the piling requirements, adjacent the Hammersmith and City tube line, and the façade retention, whilst forming a basement in this very busy location, the team had to navigate numerous challenges to deliver an outstanding solution.”

The complex scheme began with the strip out and demolition of a 6-storey brick-clad concrete building, and the adjacent four-storey brick and timber retail and residential building, whose facade was retained.

A new 8-storey concrete-framed oval-shaped office tower was built, incorporating curved sandstone and Portland stone to its façade.

ISG also completed the Cat A fit out to nine floors of new office space with polished concrete floors in the main core area, four new lifts and a concrete finished desk within the new main reception area.
