Chiswick Park Close To Completion
Tree planting ceremony to mark milestone at Building 7
The structural completion of the final building at Chiswick Park, the 12-storey Building 7, has been celebrated with a special on-site ‘topping out’ ceremony.
Construction of the 334,000 sq foot building , the largest of the twelve in the developmet, is expected to be completed this year.
Graham Stirk and Ivan Harbour, partners of Richard Rogers, the architect who conceived the park’s masterplan, joined members of the project team to plant a tree outside the building to mark the milestone.
When completed Chiswick Park will comprise 1.8m sq ft of built stock, providing a workplace for 12,000 people- there are currently 8,000 employees in the Park which is home to several of the world's leading companies. The Park was recently purchased by a Chinese conglomerate.
Mike Pegler, Managing Director, Blackstone, asset managers of the park, said: “This represents a significant milestone in the delivery of a building which is the final piece of the Chiswick Park master plan.”
Lord Rogers said: “The great success of Chiswick Park is rooted in the quality of the client, the public space at its centre, its lake and the well detailed buildings. Chiswick Park has established a new benchmark for the working environment and for office park development generally.
“Building 7 represents the last of the 12 building masterplan and the topping out last week is the culmination of construction work that began 14 years ago. It is a truly outstanding project, one that has drawn worldwide attention and all those involved can be justifiably proud."
