Helical has held a ceremony to mark the topping-out of the Farringdon East, the oversite office-led development above the Elizabeth line eastern ticket hall at Farringdon station.

The six-storey building is due to be completed by the end of 2019.

Matthew Bonning-Snook, Property Director at Helical, commented: “Reaching this major milestone is another positive step towards delivering almost 90,000 sq. ft. of Grade A office space right in the heart of Smithfield. The impact of the Elizabeth line will ensure that Farringdon’s appeal as a commercial and social hub continues to grow further, which is why we expect this to be highly sought-after office accommodation.”Ben Tate, Head of Property Development – Crossrail Oversite Developments (OSDs) at Transport for London, said: “The oversite development above Farringdon station will provide fantastic new office space and a restaurant for those working and dining in the capital. As a key part of our huge development pipeline, the Elizabeth line property schemes are directly opening up opportunities for new jobs and homes, and will raise vital revenue to reinvest in London’s transport network.”
