Planning permission has been granted at 21 Bloomsbury Street for the refurbishment of these 86,000 sq ft Central London offices.  The refurb is to be undertaken by Morgan Capital on behalf of Capital 38 who acquired the building in 2012 for an undisclosed sum and will give the building a gross development value of circa £150m.

Work is due to start in the third quarter this year and will see an atrium café/lounge, rooftop café/event space, building wellness studio, 174 cycle spaces, 112 lockers and 17 showers and a feature cycle entrance. Simon Morgan, investment and asset manager of Morgan Capital, said  “Twenty One will set a new benchmark for how existing buildings can be sustainably reimagined to provide the exemplar buildings of tomorrow, providing the performance and amenity to compete with the very best new builds, whilst achieving aspirational levels of low embodied carbon through 95% retention of the existing structure.”
