Allied London and Aerium secure consent for redevelopment of Herbal House in London

The London Borough of Camden has resolved to grant planning permission for the comprehensive mixed-use redevelopment of Herbal House at 10 Back Hill, London.

Award winning developer Allied London is working in partnership with Aerium to deliver their joint vision for Herbal House to become one of London’s best multi-use workspace buildings.

The former Daily Mirror printing headquarters is situated at the heart of Farringdon and Clerkenwell and comprises 120,000 sq ft of floor space. The vision for the new development celebrates this iconic building’s industrial past, with exposed brickwork, crittall windows and remnants of former printing works, interlaced with new state of the art flexible workspace, retail outlets and top floor residential duplex apartments, resulting in an environment that is both creative and contemporary.

Herbal House will be set over 10 floors (from basement to sixth floor) and will offer tenants modern, customisable workspace that is highly specified and flexible to accommodate the needs of almost every industry. The workspaces will be supported by excellent amenities, both within the building and in the local area to form one of the best developments in the area.

Michael Ingall, CEO of Allied London said: “Herbal House offers an extremely rare opportunity in the centre of London, both in terms of scale and quality, to create some of the best new workspace and retail facilities in the area.

“We believe that Herbal House can offer occupiers a unique experience; not just a place to go to work, but a place where ideas and creativity can flow, a place where there’s a real and defined culture to the building.

Our careful market research tells us that modern businesses are evolving and have different needs to what they once had. Herbal House addresses this fact and will provide the modern, customisable space that fast paced emerging and corporate businesses desire.”

Robin Carr, Fund Manager at Aerium Finance Ltd, added: “This highly sought after location offers a hub for creative industries, it’s a culturally rich area with huge future potential and we want to bring this iconic building back to life.”
