Developer Favermead has announced plans to restart work on the 60 Holborn Viaduct project in London, UK, which had been mothballed.

Progress on the 215,000ft² office development has been on hold since planning was secured in December 2007, as the economic slump forced a delay.

The redevelopment, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, involves rebuilding the gate house with traditional materials.

The new gate house will complete the existing set of three structures that were originally erected during Victorian times.

The building is expected to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating. It features an undulating façade in front of a glazed curtain wall.

Work will begin after the securing of a pre-let agreement, according to constructionenquirer.com.
