8 St James's Square, London

8 St James's Square is an unusually complicated city centre project, involving significant ground works and temporary works and a highly varied superstructure, plus the retention of a listed building, in the only square in Westminster's exclusive St James's district. The site occupies a prominent position on the north side of St James's Square on the corner of Duke of York Street and returns into Apple Tree Yard. It includes a Grade II listed building, 7 St James's Square designed by Sir Edward Lutyens, and lies within the St James's Conservation Area. The project involved the demolition of two offices and a restaurant which wrapped around No.7 and was replaced by a new nine-storey L-shaped high quality Grade A office building, including a lowered Lower Ground floor and new Basement level. 

Completed 2015.
