New landmark office and retail building launches in the heart of the West End
LSQ London, the new 112,000 sq ft landmark headquarters office and retail building in Leicester Square, launches today. Construction is underway and LSQ London is due for completion in Quarter 3 2016.
Formerly known as 48 Leicester Square, LSQ London is an island site comprising the entire western side of Leicester Square, bounded by Panton St, Whitcomb St and Swiss Court. The new building will provide 95,000 sq ft of new Grade A offices over seven floors and 17,000 sq ft of retail space.
LSQ London plays an important role in the significant regeneration of Leicester Square, one of London’s most celebrated squares and one of the world’s most iconic destinations. Part of the retail accommodation has been pre-let but there will be a major retail unit facing Swiss Court arranged on ground basement and first floor.
The new building is designed by Make and principal architect Frank Filskow said: “This project is a rare opportunity to consider a complete standalone building “in the round”. It has been an exciting challenge to reinvent 48 Leicester Square from the inside out, and to give the building a new identity by providing high quality office and retail space in this historic and yet culturally vibrant location.”
