Focchi has manufactured the façades for 10 and 20 Triton Street. The first (No 10) is a 165.000 sq ft (50.292 m2) speculative office development over 9 storeys. The second (No 20) is a 400.000 sq ft (121.920 m2) speculative office development over 10 storeys. The buildings stand on a common ground floor slab, with a variable depth basement beneath. Designed by Terry Farrell and Partners the development has significantly extended and enhanced Regent’s Place, already a successful 13 acre West End office campus. The development includes a community theatre and additional retail provision around the new public square. An important part of the master plan for Regent’s Place has been to increase the permeability of the estate through the creation of new or improved East / West and North / South links, and a new western entrance onto Osnaburgh Street.
This has given improved pedestrian access within the estate and through to the transport links of Great Portland Street and Warren Street underground stations. This improvement to the environment has been enhanced with substantial planting and re-landscaping throughout the estate, including the creation of a new public square and outside courtyard, and remodelling of the existing public space and the installation of various commissioned works of public art. British Land has long been committed to putting sustainability at the heart of its business. It’s an approach that saw British Land named Sustainable Developer of the Year at Building Magazine’s 2007 Sustainability Awards. Regent’s Place is one of British Land’s flagship projects in this respect. The new office buildings contain 2.000 sq ft of green roofs, extensive rainwater harvesting and “grey water” recycling, as well as the planting of 180 new trees. 90% of demolition waste has been recycled and put to new use, while all timber used comes from 100% sustainable resources. Both buildings have achieved an “Excellent” BREAM rating.
