The building, part of the £2.4 billion development on the edge of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, will provide 350,000 sq ft of workspace.

Designed by architects Arney Fender Katsalidis (AFK), it will incorporate ‘third space’ areas into its design, which offer a variety of uses and encourage movement throughout the building.

It will also feature retail facilities and leisure space, as well as a roof terrace.

Project director Andrew Tobin said: “IQL is creating a new workplace experience for London, starting with the belief that a workplace should not have boundaries.

“It has been designed for tenants to have a multi-layered experience that extends from their desk to the variety of third space provisions available in the area.”

Two commercial buildings have already been built as part of the IQL development, with construction underway on a third.
