Lendlease has signed luxury cinema chain, Everyman, as anchor leisure tenant at the Turing Building within International Quarter London (IQL). Both the Everyman cinema and the Turing Building are set to launch in 2024.
Designed by architects Arney Fender Katsalidis, the 21-storey Turing Building has been created to inspire collaboration and support new ways of working. Completing in summer 2024, it will offer 350,000sq ft of Grade A office space.
Guy Thomas, head of place assets at Lendlease Europe, said: “IQL is becoming one of the most exciting destinations for forward-thinking businesses in the UK. We’ve now let over one million square feet of offices, welcoming world-leading organisations to Stratford, and construction on The Turing Building is well underway.
“As well as responding to corporate and consumer priorities of sustainability, wellbeing and flexibility – having the right amenity mix is critical to ensuring we create places where workers, residents and visitors want to spend time.
“That means we have to get the ground floor right, and when the decision was made to have an integrated cinema to support the cultural boom in Stratford, Everyman was top of the list. We’re delighted to have them here, as part of a landmark building that will define IQL for generations to come.”
The Turing Building is BREEAM Outstanding and certified Well Gold; and is targeting WiredScore Platinum from a connectivity and tech standpoint. Contributing to Lendlease’s wider Net Zero targets, the Turing Building will see a 48% embodied carbon reduction in construction, will operate with a 57% reduction in water demand, and will have EPC A Energy Ratings and 90m2 of solar panels that contribute to a 30% reduction in embodied carbon.
