Green light for O’Rourke to start timber office block

Construction will start next year on the Queensway site in Bayswater opposite the revamp of the Whiteleys department store site which O’Rourke is also overseeing.

Foster + Partners has designed The William which will deliver six floors of Grade A office space spanning 90,000 sq ft alongside 21,000 sq ft of shops and 32 new homes when it opens in 2026.

The William will be constructed using cross-laminated timber making it one of London’s largest timber developments.
