Frost Fair

TIDE is located in an area rich in history and culture.

It was a pleasure to sponsor Better Bankside’s Frost Fair this weekend.

A thoroughly enjoyable family event celebrating a period of time when the River Thames froze over 24 times; the ice was thick enough to have market stalls, dancing and even have an elephant walk on it!

The Frost Fair replicated traditional events from folk dancing and singing to artisan markets and a life-sized elephant puppet parade and also showcased a Dr Who screening with the frozen Thames.

Thanks to Better Bankside for putting on a great event.

Grand Central Apartments, Kings Cross

We are very pleased to welcome our new residents to Grand Central Apartments, Kings Cross.

This amazing 22-storey tower located in the heart of Kings Cross was 100% pre-sold over a year before completion.

Grand Central Apartments is a testament to our outstanding design team, including Stiff + Trevillion Architects, Hoare Lee, Turley, Gardiner & Theobald thank you for all your hard work.

We’d also like to thank JLL especially Louis Carstens for a successful sales campaign.

Topping out ceremony marks major milestone at net zero carbon TIDE building in Southwark

Barings and LBS Properties’ TIDE Bankside has reached a major project milestone, with the completion of the mixed-use development’s main structure.

The joint venture partners and Kier Construction hosted a topping out ceremony at the Park Street, Southwark site today to mark the occasion.

Designed by award-winning architects Squire & Partners, TIDE will be a net zero carbon development, has received a NABERS design reviewed target rating of 5* and is targeting a certification of BREEAM Outstanding. It is set to surpass the current LETI best practice target for embodied carbon by more than 10%.

Ian Mayhew, Managing Director, UK Asset Management, Real Estate at Barings, said: “This is an exciting milestone in the delivery of TIDE Bankside. We acquired this office in the summer of 2021 because we recognised how changing tenant requirements would create a fresh wave of demand for well-located, sustainable and beautifully designed office buildings. Set to open in Autumn 2024, we have that same confidence and look forward to the next phase of development for TIDE.”

Nick Crawford, CEO of LBS Properties, said: “It is exciting to see the architectural vision of Squire and Partners come to fruition as we reach this important project milestone. When it completes next year, we believe TIDE will set the benchmark for the next generation of Central London office development. In addition to its market leading sustainability credentials and extensive internal and external amenity, we also hope its inspiring architecture will capture the imagination of our future occupiers.”

Gus Wright, regional director for Kier Construction London & Southern said: “We are proud to reach this significant milestone at TIDE, and today’s event was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the hard work and collaboration that goes into delivering such an impressive building. This project, which utilises our expertise of delivering large scale sustainable commercial developments on tight inner-city sites, has been constructed to meet the highest sustainable building standards, and will prove to be an important asset for the local community.”

The new 12-storey, 145,000 sq. ft building, costing approximately £69m to construct, will provide a mixture of office space, affordable workspace and retail space and is situated near Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the Tate Modern in London’s Bankside area, next to the River Thames.

Designed to have a positive impact on its occupants’ health and wellbeing, the building uses efficient design solutions both to improve its sustainability and to enhance user experience for those working there. These include light, airy spaces with openable windows, green landscaping on the roof, over 13,000 sq ft of external spaces, and panoramic views across the city.

The professional team include Squire & Partners, Heyne Tillett Steel, Hoare Lea and Gardiner & Theobald. The building is marketed by leasing agents Cushman & Wakefield, RX London and USP.
