LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: Premier global construction company Multiplex has reached practical completion on Arbor, the first building to be delivered at Western Yards, on behalf of property developer Native Land.

Designed by PLP Architecture, the 20-story mid-rise stands at 80m in height and sits above the historic railway arches in Southwark. The building comprises a mix of commercial and retail space.

Designed with sustainability and wellness in mind, the building features high ceilings, wide windows, open-air terraces and intelligent technologies. The generous, double-height collaboration spaces complement flexible working, while top-of-the-range cycle amenities encourage active travel.

George Assimakoplous, Project Director at Multiplex said:

‘‘The team is very proud to have reached practical completion 4 days early with 7 sectional completions delivered on time. Native Land and the design team have been refreshing to work with and we are all delighted with the end result. A truly collaborative effort by a respected group of professionals. It’s been a rewarding and pleasurable experience -thank you and well done to all involved.”

Dan Clarke, Development Director at Native Land said:

“The completion of Arbor marks another fantastic achievement for Native Land as it continues to provide world-class new buildings for London’s commercial and residential markets. The building is the first piece of the wider Bankside Yards masterplan which will be delivered over the next few years as part of an environmentally integrated estate. We are deeply proud of how the building now appears and this is a testament to the skill and commitment of the team at Multiplex who have overcome the significant challenges of the last few years to fulfil all our expectations. Building great buildings is by necessity a team enterprise and I am very glad to have been part of this process again with Multiplex.”

Abor represents Multiplex’s ongoing collaboration with developer Native Land, with the contractor having delivered Burlington Gate, a luxury residential development in London’s prestigious Mayfair district.
