British Land plans underground London logistic hub

Plans will be submitted for the innovative hub in the former Crossrail box works site beneath Kingdom Street in Paddington.

The site was returned to British Land’s ownership when the Elizabeth Line opened.

The developer will also now submit revised plans for a 13-storey office above the box containing the new logistics hub.

Permission had been granted for a 21-storey office at the Five Kingdom Street site which included using the box structure.

This will now be revised and reduced by 7-storeys to meet today’s expectations for environmentally-sustainable design and occupier wellbeing.

British Land said the urban logistics hub would facilitate deliveries within Westminster using electric vehicles and cargo bikes, reducing congestion and emissions and improving air quality.
