Four Public Affairs secures planning consent for client Viridis Real Estate

Earlier this month, Four Public Affairs successfully secured planning consent for the redevelopment of the former Guardian building on Farringdon Road in Islington.

The team has tirelessly spent the last year working on the redevelopment with client, Viridis Real Estate, and had to overcome a number of sensitive issues surrounding the site in order to bring forward a scheme that would successfully reflect the historic character of Clerkenwell.

The commercial development will provide a significant increase in office space, including more affordable workspace. Furthermore, significant public realm improvements will be delivered, creating active frontages, a new publicly accessible courtyard and new trees being planted around the site and elsewhere in the borough.
