Plans Submitted

Plans for the redevelopment of Elizabeth House site in Waterloo have now been submitted, reports developer HB Reavis.

The proposed scheme designed by Stirling Prize-winning architects AHMM would deliver around 1.2m square feet of workspace, new retail and a transformed public realm next to the UK’s busiest train station.

A key feature of the plans is the one-acre garden promenade, directly connected to Waterloo Station and of benefit to the 100 million users of the station each year.

Additionally, a new public route called ‘Waterloo Curve’, will provide a major new pedestrian street for the area which would be lined with shops and cafés.

HB Reavis has successfully launched its first plug and play offering at Elizabeth House, which has been fully let to high growth companies Cera Care and Exponea.

Cera Care, a technology-enabled domiciliary care company and Exponea, an AI experience cloud which empowers online retailers, had both outgrown their previous offices in Shoreditch and Clerkenwell, and were looking to expand their businesses.

HB Reavis worked closely with the two technology-focused firms, which have moved from previous offices in Shoreditch and Clerkenwell, to create a new ‘plug and play’ space. This allowed the firms to quickly occupy the workspace, express their own identity, and take advantage of a shared collaboration area.

Cera Care and Exponea moved into the 4th Floor at Elizabeth House in July. They will benefit from a well-located building, directly next to Waterloo Station, the UK’s busiest train station, and a stone’s throw away from the cultural hub of the South Bank and newly opened independent retail at Leake Street Arches.

Steven Skinner, Transactions Director of HB Reavis UK, said: “Often lease inflexibility, the high initial cost and complexity to procure fit out is prohibitive for fast-growing companies in occupying a high quality, collaborative working environment. Our offering at the 4th Floor – Elizabeth House responds to the changing needs of such companies. As we continue to develop our proposals for the redevelopment of Elizabeth House, we are very excited to launch this workspace and to welcome both Cera Care and Exponea to the building.”

Elizabeth House, Waterloo is a strategically important site, acquired by HB Reavis in May 2017 with planning permission for a circa 945,000 sq ft mixed use development. HB Reavis has since appointed Stirling Prize-winning architects AHMM as design partner to create a new London landmark which sets out to include world-class workspace as well as huge public realm improvements.

HB Reavis has acquired the office-led Elizabeth House development next to Waterloo station.

Elizabeth House is a dated 1960s office building that has been earmarked for redevelopment for more than ten years. It has planning permission for two new buildings and public realm and the plans are expected to spark wider regeneration in this strategically important and well-connected area of the South Bank.

The proposed new development comprises a 29-storey building to the north (118 metres in height) providing offices and residential units and a 10-storey building to the south providing office and retail space. The scheme delivers 88 000 sq m of development, including 70 000 sq m of commercial floorspace, 142 homes and public space totalling 18,000 sq m.

Tomas Jurdak, CEO, HB Reavis UK, commented: “We’re excited to add Elizabeth House to our portfolio. The development provides a unique opportunity for us to deliver a building that will transform the area through our considered approach to development and placemaking. The deal aligns with our strategy of acquiring well-located sites in London with significant potential to deliver innovative, contemporary office schemes that employ the latest technology, are heavily focused on the needs of their occupiers and improve life for those who use our buildings as well as the surrounding community.”

Pavel Trenka, CEO, HB Reavis Group, added: “In recent months we have been asked about our perspective and commitment to the London market. This deal – our largest yet in the UK – affirms our long-term commitment and aligns with our plan to position one third of our business operations in London by 2019. The development joins a list of major schemes of similar size and urban scale across our other markets including Varso Place in Warsaw, Agora in Budapest and NIVY/Twin City in Bratislava. Both Elizabeth House and Varso Place are unique due to their extraordinary vicinity to major transportation hubs and their scale and prominence provide an endless range of user experiences. These are the development opportunities we live for!”
