SoJDC said it has seen a “massive spike” in interest following the Brexit vote

IFC 6, as the latest building is currently known, will face a new public square along with two other MJP designed buildings: IFC 1 (completing next month) and IFC 5 (currently on site, completing next year).

The planning application comes weeks after SoJDC said it has seen a “massive spike” in interest following the Brexit vote, with increased interest since mid-August as turbulent markets settled.

Lee Henry, SoJDC Managing Director, said: “If approved, the building will provide approximately 69,000 square feet of net internal space over five floors”

A total of 50% of the JIFC site will be given back to the community through public parks and squares and no car parking will be lost during or after the development.
