Development managers Real Estate Management (UK) Limited and Sellar Property Group have confirmed the appointment on the new scheme alongside The Shard and The News Building.

Shard Place will contain 180,000 sq ft of apartments ranging in size from studios to one, two and three bedrooms. It has been designed by Renzo Piano and will feature a roof garden on the sixteenth floor. It has an estimated development value of £600m. Demolition works are complete and the development is on track to be completed in 2020. Mace will provide full construction management services including the delivery of the shell and core, the fit out of the apartments, all associated MEP services, residential amenities and the public realm.

Michael Baker, CEO of Real Estate Management (UK) Limited: “Mace was one of our trusted partners on The Shard and we look forward to working with them to complete the third tower in Renzo Piano’s vision for Shard Quarter.”

James Sellar, CEO of Sellar Property Group, said: “With enabling works now complete, the appointment of Mace positions us one step closer to completing the much-acclaimed Shard Quarter trilogy.”

Gareth Lewis, CEO for Construction of Mace, said: “Mace has worked on almost every element of Shard Quarter – from building The Shard itself to the News Building and the new station concourse.

“The fantastic proposals for Shard Place will complete this transformation and our appointment to deliver the final jewel in the crown following a competitive tender process feels very special”
