McAleer & Rushe have been appointed as Main Contractor to a £140m Taxi House development at Westminster.
The landmark co-living development on the banks of the Grand Union Canal will transform the site of the former London Taxi Drivers’ Association HQ. Key to the development is the 346 units, vast internal amenity and external space, a pavilion and high-quality co-working space. McAleer and Rushe have been appointed as the main contractor on behalf of Cheyne Capital. They will be building the new development around the existing depot until they can be re-housed in their new facility.
Once completed, it will include a private pool, dining, massage rooms and a bespoke cinema. The building will range in size and height from 3 to 12 stories, and it will have 23,700 sqft of green, biodiverse roofs, targeting a BREEAM Excellent rating. There will also be 11,840 sqft of workspace specifically dedicated to SMEs. Undoubtedly, it will have a lasting impact on the community.
It is great for us to be involved in such an amazing project as Cost Consultants and Employer’s Agents.
