British Land Plans Underground London Logistics Hub

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Construction Enquirer.

This is the sub-title to the article.

British Land is planning to create an underground low-carbon logistics hub in central London.

Note.

  1. The former Crossrail box works site beneath Kingdom Street in Paddington is being turned into the logistics hub.
  2. The site was returned to British Land’s ownership when the Elizabeth Line opened.
  3. There will be a 13-storey office above the box.
  4. The 21-storey office at the Five Kingdom Street site has been reduced to seven storeys, to meet today’s expectations for environmentally-sustainable design and occupier wellbeing.
  5. The urban logistics hub would facilitate deliveries within Westminster using electric vehicles and cargo bikes

It looks to me, that this logistics hub has similar aims and objectives, to British Land’s other planned hub, that I wrote about in Finsbury Square Car Park Becomes British Land Hub For Delivery Drivers.

Conclusion

British Land seem to have a plan to develop low carbon logistics hubs.
